Glenn Mottershead - Founder and Creative Video Director.

One of the storyteller’s greatest skills is their ability to connect with their contributors and audience. When Glenn Mottershead launched Colloquial Collective in 2015, the idea was that “by recording individual voices we form a colloquial collective narrative, henceforth, a community can come together, have their say and create something unique.” The aim has always been to create and capture conversations through film. 

With a master’s degree in Photography and Urban Cultures, as well as being an associate of the Centre for Urban and Community Research at Goldsmiths, Glenn has developed an innovative approach to representing urban issues. His work focuses on an array of topics including regeneration, corporate social responsibility, community cohesion and consumer-led insights for major brands — all presented in a visually engaging manner with a compelling narrative.

Lorna Jackson - Creative Video Director & Producer.

After graduating from Westminster University Lorna spent five years working as a Clapper Loader on numerous television commericals shot on 35mm film and pop promos, largely filmed on 16mm.

Lorna then moved in to television production after working as a production coordinator then as a researcher within the BBC’s Consumer Unit. 

While freelancing as a Production Manager for four years, Lorna learnt the art of video editing – a skill she continues to hone today. 

In 2014 Lorna worked within the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) then as a Public Liaison Officer within London’s City Hall. Initially under Boris Johnson then Sadiq Khan from 2016. This provided Lorna with the unique opportunity to hear and respond to the voice of Londoners affected by crime, housing, planning to cultural matters. 

Lorna joined Glenn Mottershead at Colloquial Collective in 2016. As Creative Video Director & Producer, Lorna works alongside Glenn and is involved in every stage of production from conception to client delivery.
