I love trees, writes PD and Edit Producer Lorraine Molloy. My love of trees took me on a 500 mile round trip from Cornwall to London last month. It was my first ever visit to the Royal Courts of Justice.

I was there supporting an amazing group of people from a campaign group called STRAW (Save The Trees of Armada Way). They had successfully called for a judicial review into Plymouth City’s Council handling of the felling of more than 100 trees in the city centre.  The felling took place back in March 2023 causing public outcry and it received national press coverage. My own personal reaction was to create a short film ( and I was fortunate enough to have it screened as part of Plymouth’s first ever Urban Tree Festival! I called on some good big hearted people who kindly gave their time and talents for free. My next step is to get it pitched….any ideas are very welcome. Media Parents has had a commission before I know – lightning can strike twice.

A year ago I was in a position to be able to create a film with no budget. But we all know how quiet it’s been over the last year and now though I really do need to earn some money – as much as I’m a huge believer of IMPACT OVER PROFIT!! Being a single mum to a 14 year old daughter, along with the juggle of self employment has made me even more tenacious, patient and tough (with a soft centre). I can deal with a teen so bring on the next challenge!

Over the last 20+ years I have producer credits ranging from Channel 4’s Location, location location to the BBC’s Great British Menu and Channel 5’s Hotel Inspector. I edit produced remotely on STV’s Great Auction Showdown in 2022 and more recently I have picked up location scouting work for film and commercials, and music videos. I’m based in Cornwall so it’s not surprising that the locations around me are frequently on screen.

Storytelling is my fascination and I love being involved in whatever form it takes. I’m open to work, shared roles, part time, full-time, adhoc and it doesn’t need to be in the south west, I’m very flexible. To contact Lorraine about the film or work go here: - the jobs and social networking site for short term, part time, job share and regular hours jobs in media. Next event at midday 28th March online.
