I’m Lyn Ferrand, the founder of Turning Point Theatre Company, Buzzword Films and most recently, Turnaround Films.
I have written and directed film and theatre since 1990, working in association with a variety of voluntary and statutory agencies. In 2000 I launched Buzzword Interactive Films with Greg Browning. Buzzword and Turning Point Theatre won several awards for training films and theatre productions, including The National Training Awards.
My film and theatre projects have been commissioned by various clients, including those in the voluntary and statutory sectors, to highlight specific health and social issues and for training health care professionals.
Awards: National Training Awards for the film THE LOST CHILD, The Skills For Care Accolades, Pavilion Innovations in Training and Prudential Carers Award. My work has been short listed for The Charity Awards and received four stars in Community Care Magazine.
I have been the Diversity Manager for DREC, creating diversity training for The Crown Prosecution Service and the Devon and Cornwall Police, including writing and producing the film NICE PEOPLE which looked at issues around rural racism.
In 2017 I launched Turnaround Films to reissue some of our award winning films and to produce new film projects. Please get in touch if you think we can help you with your training resources.
Since 2015, I have written three novels, published by Feedaread – http://www.feedareed.com My books are on sale at Amazon.com and other online book outlets.
February 2017: Filming a new project in Devon. Keep an eye on my blog to find out what I’m up to. Contact me at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
