Biography

Roddy Gibson is the Course Leader for BA (Hons) Film and Television at London College of Communication. Roddy has been working in TV and video production for over 30 years. He founded the multiple International Visual Communications Association (IVCA) award-winning Emerald Productions in 1988 followed by specialist streaming media company Joose TV in 2000.

Credited variously as writer, producer, director, lighting camera, sound engineer and editor, Roddy’s breadth of production skills reflects those demanded of a small independent. He has made documentaries about The Scala cinema in King’s Cross, Irish rock star Phil Lynott and the Isle of Man TT Races. 

Roddy moved into Higher Education in 2005 but continues to be an active film-maker. His latest ‘The Road to Sparta’ (three years in the making), was nominated for ‘Best Feature’ at the British Sports Journalist Awards in 2017 and was selected for screening at the Melbourne International Documentary Film Festival. Typically, Roddy co-directed, shot and edited this film. His latest project is a film about the children who grew up in Northern Ireland during the worst years of the Troubles.
