Worldview Media is a media production, consultancy and training service, founded by Andrew Horton.
Andrew is currently Online News and Video Editor for Tearfund, and has written blogs for the HuffPost. He has led content gathering trips to two of the most dangerous countries in the world to be an NGO worker (South Sudan and Central African Republic). He has also visited Malawi as video/photography lead, and Uganda and Rwanda to lead storytelling workshops.
Having trained and worked as a journalist for six years, he has a sharp news sense. He leads on editorial aspects of web and social content for Tearfund. When at the BBC, Andrew trained and worked as a self-shooting video journalist.
Since 2009, Worldview Media has provided small businesses and charities with practical editorial strategies and creative content.
It was part of a team which created Twitter’s first real-time Passion Play – Easter (LIVE); commissioned by Release International Andrew formulated their social media strategy, including conducting a content and channels audit.
With Andrew working full time with Tearfund and having a one-year-old son (and one on the way!), opportunities to develop Worldview Media are currently limited.
Today, he remains a regular presenter/producer for the Making Sense of Life podcast with Dr Sunil Raheja. In October 2018 he published an e-book guide for project managers titled How to commission better videos. He continues to blog on content strategy and video production, and is currently undertaking a Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing with the Digital Marketing Institute.
Worldview Media’s think:create:sustain tagline was inspired by a vision to create more sustainable media strategies and content production processes. Over his 15 years of experience in media production and charity comms work, Andrew has seen ways to improve efficiency, effectiveness and excellence when it comes to content.
At the heart of this is empowering these small businesses and charities to learn and grow themselves, through training and vision-forming.
