John McCaughley

John is about to complete his studies in Media Production at Coventry University. His work has screened at many festivals including StArt Fest 2015, ScreenTest Festival 2016 and Just Before Midnight Noir Film Fest 2016.
 
By exploring the city’s ring road poetically, John hopes to gain a better understanding of his own approach to poetic film making. The idea of working with poets and writers is exciting; John hopes this collaboration will push his creative process into new areas of experimentation and poetic truth.
