About Me/Contact

Hi, I’m Owain and I’m a filmmaker, actor, activist and photographer.


Most of the work I do focuses around social issues, and giving a voice to underrepresented or marginalised people and communities. My past experience includes directing Sleeping Rough, a feature film and campaign raising awareness of street homelessness in the UK, an Exeter Phoenix-commissioned short called The Hardest Fight, about using boxing as a way of fighting against depression, and a short documentary series commissioned by Rife Magazine, called Crisis and Hope, about homelessness services in Bristol.

I was also named by Rife Magazine as one of their 24 Most Influential Bristolians in 2016, and in 2018 delivered a TEDx talk about homelessness and compassion. Current projects I am working on include a short archive film inspired by the Challenger spacecraft, and a project looking at life inside Young Offender’s Institutions, as well as completing my degree in Theatre and Spanish, where the majority of my work focuses on the representation of marginalised and subaltern communities.
