My Trip Around The East Coast: Part 2

Day 4: 20/07/15 This was the last full day we had in NYC; we made the most of it by visiting the incredible 9/11 memorial and museum, the Statue of Liberty and finally taking a tour of the New York ‘Madame Tussauds’ display. I never wanted to leave this wonderful city but the adventure didn’t…

My Trip Around The East Coast: Part 1

I wanted to share with you a few of my photographs and footage I took whilst being on a family holiday in the US in summer 2015. During this time I was fortunate enough to visit several states around the east coast such as crazy New York, rainy Maine, beautiful New Hampshire and Massachusetts. All…

Still Alice

I was given this film as a gift for christmas and so sat down the other night to watch it. I’m not sure what I was expecting from this feature, but what I do know is I’ve a new-found respect both for Julianne Moore, portraying “Alice” in such a real and true way but also…

‘FishEye’/Wide Angle Lense Experiment

This is just a quick video I’ve put together following on from my previous blog ‘Uni Room: In Photographs’, to demonstrate the use of my new ‘FishEye’ Lens. This lens can make images look warped by giving the image a more circular appearance; the effect can often be seen online Photo Booths or in Photoshop….

Shawshank Redemption

This film has been sitting in my ‘charity shop haul’ collection for a while now and one way or another I’ve just never had the chance to actually watch it. This feature is listed as the most highly rated feature film ever on IMDB, this alone made me curious as to what was – and…

My Uni Room: In Photographs

I know this post has absolutely nothing to do with Film and TV – but I wanted to share with  you guys some experiments of one of my other hobbies – Photography. I studied A Level photography back in sixth form and even thought about going into a career with it for a while but…

Whiplash

First off can I just comment on how a-ma-zing this film is – as I’m typing this I’m currently watching it for the second time in the same evening and I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to see a film again this urgently. Here are just a few reasons that everyone should see this film….

Seven: A Documentary Project

This was my first film project in which I was assigned during my first semester at university. I worked as the camera operator for this assignment but can already begin to see the ups and downs of this project. The film focuses on the story so far of an international student who goes by the…

Christmas Gifts in Review

Once again I was throughly spoiled this Christmas with some wonderful gifts – as quite a lot of them were film or photography related I thought I’d share a few of them with you. ‘1001 Movies to See Before You Die’ Book When I picked this present up I didn’t have a clue what it…

My Film 2015

This post was meant for the end of December; I can only apologise – I must’ve been getting too much into the holiday spirit! Anyway better late than never… I was a little disappointed by the fact that, once again, the majority of the films I’ve seen are big blockbusters or stereotypical ‘teen movies’. However this…
