About this site

Thank you for visiting. My name is Iain Finlay Macleod. I am a writer and a filmmaker.

I like to blog about subjects which I am interested in. These include:

Playwriting - learning more about the craft and developing as a writer.

Dramaturgy for writers - looking at how writers can use dramaturgical techniques and approaches to develop their own practice.

Filmmaking - learning about the many skills needed for directing documentaries, including technical skills (sound, camera & editing).

Learning and Teaching - this is the underpinning of it all. Getting better at learning and understanding how learning happens means that you can develop whichever skills you want in a quicker and more effective way.

The Teaching Artist - the intersection of being an artist and teaching others and how it helps you develop as well as passing it forward.

Thank you for visiting.
