Gordon Parsonage – 20Twenty

My name is Gordon and I am the Junior Content Producer here at 20Twenty Productions. I joined as an apprentice straight after school and realised from that moment I loved filmmaking and animation. So from that point on I have made many films for customers and been on the production crew for a film funded by the YMCA. With this knowledge and experience I have picked up I have also managed to deliver many workshops in schools teaching young people how to make their very own films and create their own animations.
