Nigel Honey has been awarded £5,000 by social enterprise start-up agency Firstport to invest in his Ability Academy, which focuses on delivering training in television and film editing to those with disabilities. The fund, will be used to create an inclusive website for his online editing academy, which teaches students in the UK and around the world. Nigel founded Ability Academy – formally known as Ability Post Production Academy – last year following his struggles with bipolar disorder. He said: “I believe having a disability, whether it is visible or invisible, shouldn’t stop people from working in the creative industries, because we have the technology now that allows anyone to learn how to use this editing programme.”
