ABOUT Danielle Sellwood
I have over 20 years experience in the sports industry as a well respected innovator with a passion for finding creative ways to shift the culture. Before moving into documentary making and video content, my career began as a designer for major sports brands followed by a long stint in sports trend forecasting at WGSN.com. I then went on to co-found Sportsister.com, a trail-blazing sports website for women. In recent years I directed the visual campaigns at Women's Sport Trust (WST), helping create lasting change in the representation of female athletes through the landmark Getty Images collaboration. My move into filmmaking came in 2017 when I co-founded Find It Film with Nicola Waterworth. What began as a film festival celebrating women's stories very quickly moved into film production. My films have since been selected for numerous international film festivals. Alongside several current film projects I am now working to make all my films and content accessible through both captioned and audio-described versions.
Sporting history: Former GB Team canoeist and Devizes to Westminster 125 mile canoe race record holder. I now enjoy open water swimming, running, triathlon, surfing and a weekly game of badminton.
Favourite place: In my camper van with a nice view, the kettle on and family or friends for company.
Best adventures: Surfing in the Outer Hebrides and competing in the annual Devizes to Westminster 125 mile canoe race three times.

I love collaboration. Right now, I'm working with photographer Alex Rotas (below left) on the Maverick Generation Project, and Lia Ditton (below right) to document her record breaking ocean rows.
