Who is the Ragged Boy?

Peter Clitheroe 

What does he do? 


I mostly make documentaries and documentary style promotional/information films, often through OuthouseFilmworks

Productions include:

  • Summer afternoon – a short from test footage using new stabilisation equipment
  • Dark Solstice – a short film shot in the kitchen
  • Fort Clonque – an out of this world location in Alderney (Channel Islands).


I was formerly Deputy Chair of the Fellowship Council at the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) which was established in 1754 and has a broad mission is to enrich society through ideas and action.

From 2017 until December 2020 I helped represent and support almost 30,000 RSA Fellows around the world, encouraging and enabling them and others to collaborate on projects that work towards the Society’s mission. I also worked with staff and Fellows and advising trustees of the RSA on policy issues.

I remain engaged with specific RSA projects. Take a look at the two minute animation here for an idea of what the RSA is about. 

Courses I wish I’d had time to take  😉

  • “Very small business opportunities for the under-achiever”
  • “Macrame your way to self sufficiency”
  • “Turn you room into a garage”

Business Ethos

Do some good … Have some fun … Make some money
