Elliot Wheatland-Clinch

Head of Production and Design London, UK

Elliot (He/Him)- As the head of Production and Design, I’m an animator, editor, videographer, (occasional) writer, and (full-time) botanist. I specialise in all things sci-fi and fantasy. Follow me on Twitter, LinkedIn and drop me some ideas/feedback on email.

Hi, I’m Elliot, the head of Production and Design.

I’m more of a visual guy than wordsmith, so I’ll keep this short… being Berkshire born and bred, I’m equally thick in the arm and thick in the head.

I betrayed my southern roots by moving up north to study Film and TV production at the University of York, and there began to pronounce grass as ‘gr-ass’ and not ‘gr-arse’. Returning south, I began mastering the art of making tea and coffee as a runner for a post-production house in London.

I soon took the opportunity to cut my commute down by 90% and become a freelance video editor. However, after realising I was talking to my dog more than people, and developing an unhealthy relationship with the characters in my audiobooks, I soon craved an office environment and began working at Thred.

If you want to know what I’ve been up to recently, you need only check out our social media accounts…

Thred Daily – Why sex education needed updating

Last year in the UK, the school curriculum for sex education received its first update in 20 years! So overdue was this modernization that Gen Z have turned to the internet, movies, and music for all their bedroom information. But the credibility of these sources leave much to be desired. With so much material at their fingertips, how can schools compete to prepare future generations for accepting, consensual, and non-judgmental relationships? Luckily,...
