In this safeguarding podcast, Lucy Betts Associate Professor of Psychology of Nottingham Trent University, takes us through her "three-factor" scale of cyberbullying and cyber-victimisation, how a school's well run anti-bullying policy can actually hide cyberbullying, and how someone can be a victim of cyberbullying without even knowing it.

We are all journalists now…Dr Holly Powell-Jones takes us through the interpretive nature of UK law as it pertains to children online, the social and cultural norms that impact law, and whether social media terms and conditions actually apply to under 18’s. All this and more in this edition of SafeToNet Foundation’s Safeguarding podcast.

In this podcast recorded at the House of Lords we talk about digital gangsters, age verification, legislation & regulation and of course the impact of Brexit on safeguarding of children in the digital context.

In this edition of the SafeToNet Foundation's Safeguarding podcast, we interview award-winning author and researcher Adrienne Katz about her recent report focussing on the issues of Vulnerable Children in a Digital World.

We also revisit her 2012 book on Cyberbullying and e-Safety, as well as discussing how well prepared schools are to handle this 21st century problem.

In this edition of the SafeToNet Foundation Safeguarding Podcast, we interview Susie Hargreaves, CEO of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) about the work they do in tracking down, cataloging and deleting online child pornography. It's not an explicit episode but it's nonetheless a tough topic.

Animation using Keynote - SafeToNet, MWC 2019

I’m pleased with how this animation turned out. It’s for use on a stand at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) show for SafeToNet. It brings to live the otherwise static graphics that are used on the stand, and adds brand-supporting dynamism to the story.

I used Apple’s Keynote for this, as I prefer the working environment to say Powerpoint, and Keynote can export to Prores formats for further manipulation in FCPX later.

I particularly like the tears..

I support Anti-Bullying Week

With not much time available, and even less budget, we needed to produce some collateral that explained why we were supporting the Anti-Bullying Alliance's Anti-Bullying Week. Simple videos recorded on iPhone5, using VideoMicMe, enlivened by graphics from ABWeek, and a royalty free sounds track. Edited in iMovie. So how did I get the animated words superimposed on top of the video? 

Ahead in the cloud

I visited Cloud Expo Europe 2017 at the Excel centre in East London and interviewed a number of people about their products and services. This video blog includes Sanjay Mewada VP Netcracker, Manjeet Dhariwal CTO CloudSmartz, Ben Weller Senior Engineer at Pure Storage Inc, Chris Hull Director Marketing Redstone Connect and David Whitaker Sales Director ADVA Optical Networking.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms promo

SSE Promo video: This is a combination of stock footage and original footage - I filmed the sewer sections on a tour with Thames Water, entering in Hyde Park... tailored music, editing (Final Cut), animations (Motion) & V/O recorded by Creative Impetus and written by  Gemma, one of my marcoms colleagues. I worked up the original story board using "found images" and Pink Floyd's One of the Days track, which I can't post on here for copyright reasons, obvs. But it gave the right mood and helped get management buy-in and budget sign off.
