Creative Cardiff's 'Show & Tell' is a quarterly event that gives a platform to the exciting range of creative people and projects in the city. It brings together Cardiff’s creative community, from emerging talent to old hands, to hear about their current projects and ambitions.

Each of the speakers will give a 10-minute lightning talk. And they'll bring an object. The object might be the source of their inspiration, a tool of their trade or a comfort blanket. The speakers will share their work and explain the importance of the object they've brought along. 

This event will be delivered in Welsh with simultaneous English language translation facilities available.

Speakers:

Osian Williams 

Osian founded SSP Media in 2012 during his studies at Bangor University. Graduating with an undergraduate and a Masters degree in filmmaking, he went on to gain experience on various network and international film projects. Osian won a BAFTA Cymru in 2013 while still studying at university, and in 2015 he went on to become a BAFTA Cymru judge.

Opportunities meant that the last two years have been spent travelling back and forth from New York City, setting up networks, collaborating with industry professionals and most recently, filming with actor Matthew Rhys. Closer to home, he has just finished directing the eight part S4C series Pobol y Rhondda after a successful first series back in 2016. 

SSP Media is an award winning independent production company based in South Wales providing a start to finish production service to their clients; from developing a brief through to filming, editing, graphics and all the way up to final delivery. As well as their full service, they can also provide crewing, kit and aerial filming for broadcast and commercial work. Most recent productions include crew for BBC3's hit show Hayley Investigates and BBC Wales' Rhod Gilberts Work Experience.
