I’m Ian Ravenscroft, aka Hey Green Raven. I produce creative, digital, animated, and immersive projects.

I work with media, arts, and cultural organisations as a freelance producer, mentor, and consultant to bring great ideas to life. Below are a few of the folk I’ve worked with. To see some of my work, check out my Projects page.

My background is in shortform content, digital and interactive production, animated film and video, social media strategy and campaigns, and immersive media for broadcasters, agencies, and award-winning production studios.

I’m currently working with Create Central to produce an augmented reality pilot around wellbeing for Coventry City of Culture 2021, producing animated, digital, and immersive projects at Second Home Studios, and providing mentoring and consultancy for The Space covering BBC Arts and Arts Council England’s New Creatives scheme.

I’m a freelancer for hire and always keen to hear about new projects and opportunities. To say hey, email ian@heygreenraven.co.uk.

My Experience

I’m from Birmingham, UK, and made my way from journalism to media production via comedy and scriptwriting. Early in my career I moved into social media strategy and digital, spending time as a producer at agencies across arts and culture organisations. I then wrote and produced award-winning animation projects with Dice Productions commissioned by UK Film Council, Channel 4, and Nickelodeon, before joining the BBC’s Digital Guerrillas digital content innovation team, and subsequently BBC Three, where I helped establish the new content production base at BBC Birmingham.

Over this time I’ve produced social media campaigns, short form video, animation, interactive digital, and virtual and augmented reality. I particularly enjoy connecting big ideas and themes into eye-catching and effective storytelling for online audiences.
