Projects

Here are a small selection of the type of projects I’ve completed over the years:

Bagel Podcast – 2018 – Present

I host, record and edit a magazine podcast for the UK Jewish community featuring the best and the brightest cross communally. For the best experience listen at bagelpodcast.com

King’s College London Cultural and Dental Institute – Stem Cell Story – 2019
I worked with the King’s College London Cultural Institute alongside the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences to create a performance poem and motion graphic video from the perspective of a Dental Stem Cell as well as facilitate a performance poetry workshop for Stem Cell scientists. This included working closely with Dean of Research Professor Abigail Tucker and Dr Rupali Lav.

It was highly enjoyable collaborating with Hayden for our combined science/arts project. He has a gift for using words in powerful and playful ways, allowing him to take complex subjects and make them accessible.

Jewish Volunteering Network Videos – 2018

I was tasked with creating a series of short form interviews about volunteer experiences including storyboarding, recording, editing and creating the motion graphics.

‘Hayden was great to work with. Right from the start he helped us tell our story in the way we wanted. His interview style both put our interviewees at ease whilst extracting the information we wanted to share. The end product was excellent and hit our brief completely. We wanted something punchy, but with enough space to allow the interviews to breathe. The additional motion graphics were a nice touch.’

Jo Bean, Jewish Volunteering Network Marketing Director

Science Gallery London – Mouthy Season – 2016

For the Mouthy season at Science Gallery London I created a series of performance poems as well as running a workshop and poetry slam all on the theme of the mouth

‘We were delighted to have worked with Hayden throughout the development and delivery of our MOUTHY season… He has the rare combination of credibility and approachability… He is equally at home engaging with students, faculty and his peers in the performance world and always delivers at events and workshops. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Dr Daniel Glaser, Science Gallery London Director

The videos from the project are below:

Limmud – Head of Podcasting & Livestreaming – 2010 – 2014

Creating forward planning of live streaming and podcasting provision. Curated material published after national and international events as well as recording and editing on site.

I also hosted and produced the world famous ‘Limmud Breakfast Show’; an anarchic Jewish themed panel interview show that was the beginning of the Bagel podcast

Secrets of the Elder of Zion – 2013

Hayden’s third one man show about how he was upset that no one had invited to the International Jewish Conspiracy. Whilst he thought it was a great joke, most of the audience didn’t get the irony!

Age of the Geek – 2012

Hayden’s second one man show showcasing his geek pride and including a rather epic geeky theme tune medley. A video will be posted at some point.

Won Shortlist Magazine’s Pick of the Fringe

International SoundCloud Fellow – 2012

SoundCloud appointed me as one of their international fellows for recording an interview series about people’s Road to the Edinburgh Fringe. You can listen to them all here:

Rantings of a Young Fool – 2010

Hayden’s first one man show. In a dingy venue on Niddry Street in Edinburgh he played music, told some poems and attempted to make people laugh. Very much a learning experience…

Writings of a Young Fool – 2010

The accompanying book the above show, approximately 200 copies were sold, but there’s always more available at gigs.
