Dr Judith Aston

Judith Aston is a Senior Lecturer in Film-making and Creative Media at UWE Bristol, and a co-director of i-Docs – the web-hub and international symposium for discussion and debate on the rapidly evolving genre of interactive documentary. As a creative producer with an academic background in visual anthropology and interaction design, she first began working in this field with the BBC Interactive Television and Apple Computing over twenty years ago and has retained her involvement in this area ever since. She is also currently working with film-maker Jeanie Finlay on Orion: Behind the Mask, a REACT funded Future Documentary Sandbox Project and is steering the creative development of the Russian Winter, an ambitious multiplatform project inspired by Bulgakov’s 1930s novel ‘The Master and Margarita’.
