Byddaf yn gweithio gyda’r artist a gwneuthurwr ffilm, Jacob Whittaker i creu cyfres o ffilmiau ar gyfer y prosiect Cragen Beca. Mae Jacob yn byw a gweithio yn Aberteifi, Ceredigion, a byddwn ni gweithio ar leoliad mewn safleoedd bwysig yn Sir Gaerfyrddin yn ogystal â gweithio gyda Chlybiau Ffermwyr Ifanc Sir Gaerfyrddin a fydd yn gwisgo’r gwisgoedd Cragen Beca sy’n cael eu datblygu ar gyfer ein tair Rebecca cyfoes.

Mae gwaith Jacob yn cynnwys gosod sain a fideo, yn ogystal â gwneud ffilmiau dogfen. Mae Jacob yn  gweithio gyda grwpiau lleol a sefydliadau cymunedol yn ogystal ag artistiaid a sefydliadau creadigol. Mae’n gyd-sylfaenydd y grŵp celfyddydau sonig GWRANDO a gofod celf Capel Y Graig ger Machynlleth.

Mae ei waith yn ymwneud yn bennaf â dogfennu, recordio ac ailgyflwyno, a yn aml cyfuno hanes a chelf, gan recordio profiadau personol bob dydd pobl Cymru a’u perthnasoedd â thirweddau a diwylliant sy’n newid.
