Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity’s transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Laura Giles

Screen and Digital Creative Business Advisor

Having worked in a broad range of roles across the creative sector, with a particular focus on-screen & digital, I have twenty years’ experience of working with businesses at various stages of growth as well as working with owner-managers on a personal level. I am fascinated about how small businesses evolve, and have had a few failures behind me that have been an important part of my learning curve as they led me to do an MBA.

On the producing side, I have made several shorts and an award-winning feature documentary called SONS OF CUBA, which was broadcast by BBC4 Storyville and sold internationally. More recently I was Associate Producer on iFeatures project MAKE UP and have produced local low-budget feature THE TAPE. I have worked in the marketing & communications team at the BFI and freelanced for a wide range of film & TV organisations including Raising Films and the British Film Commission. In 2019 I launched Screen Cornwall, a new economic development agency for the sector.
