About

Clare Unsworth

Filmmaker, photographer.

I'm a freelance filmmaker and photographer, based in the UK.

 

I have worked on everything from elaborate fiction films to poetic documentary and art film. In 2013, I began offering promotional video work through my production company, Foxbite Media, through which I have made work for organisations including the National Trust, the Creative Foundation and Shepway Green Party.

 

I thrive in the making of short portrait-based films about emotive and sometimes difficult topics. I am particularly motivated by the communicative power that film is able to offer, and love bringing this to collaborative projects with other artists. Over the last few years I have been working in this way extensively with spoken word poet, Leah Thorn, with great success. You can find links to some of our work below.

 

I'm also a keen photographer and often produce stills alongside my film-work. Over the years I have particularly enjoyed doing the occasional portrait session. You can see some of my photographic work in my gallery.
