Joshua Gaunt is an filmmaker, animator and community artist based in England. His passion lies in work that is interdisciplinary and, above all, collaborative. To date he has worked on a number of short and medium length film projects, which have won awards and have been screened internationally at SXSW, HotDocs, Kingbonn China, Cannes & Edinburgh Fringe. His personal, experimental work is based on continued academic research into Post-Digital production methodology for which he was awarded a PhD from the University of Exeter in 2011.
Within his community, he has collaborated with many local filmmakers and organisations in a variety of roles including editor, camera operator and animator. He is also highly experienced in informal education as a media tutor and community artist where he has facilitated participatory work by a range of individuals and groups from the very young to adult, from mainstream education to personalised learning and special needs settings. This work is all done under the banner of WORKSHOPS N' DOCS and often involves collaboration with artists working in other disciplines.
