Today we meet Clancy Chassay, 28, multimedia journalist from London.
"I do a lot of work with Frontline and they told me about Clancy’s work. He is definitely a one to watch. Frontline and the people they work with ‘champion independent journalism.’ This work takes tremendous courage and dedication – and should be recognised.” - Charlotte Skene Catling, architect and writer.
Clancy is a multimedia correspondent with an international remit. He has recently returned from Beirut where he worked as a foreign correspondent for the Guardian since 2006...
While there he also contributed to the Economist, The Independent and The Sunday Telegraph. Before studying philosophy and international relations at university, he worked in creative development, devising TV show concepts and documentaries primarily for Channel 4. He also shot two short films during that time and is currently refining the script to a longer fiction film.
