Call Me Collins
I’m a FILMMAKER, writer, producer, feminist, working mum, MOTHER OF BOYS, cheerleader of others and curious about many things….and I’m all about helping you achieve your dreams.

I write about the film projects I’m working on, impact filmmaking, health equity, how to be more productive and useful tips and info to help you with your own endeavours.

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away….
Ok, ok, that’s not how my story starts. I’m from Earth, I’m a mother of small boys and I run an impact film production house with my hub. Although I do sometimes find my thoughts are in outer space…
In a nutshell, I make documentaries with a purpose, I like sharing what I’ve learned with others and to inspire people to live into their own passion areas.
