The Academy Awards: Reaction 2016

So after all the build-up, the Academy Awards 2016 are officially over, but once again the ceremony proved to be the occasion of the year (even if it’s almost impossible to watch here in the UK). As with any awards ceremony, there are the obvious winners and winners that may shock or surprise us and…

Film 2016 – BBC One

Film 2016 Oscars Debate I’ve posted a link above for a show on BBC One that’s probably only watched by film-geeks such as myself. Here’s why; I became aware of this show a few years ago, after walking into our living room whilst my mum was watching an episode. At this point I was only…

Family’s End: A Drama Short

This is my second project during my first year as an undergrad in Film and TV Production; in this project I took on the role(s) of lighting and production designer. During this project my group learnt how to capture the audience’s attention using an original narrative written by one of our crew. We also had…

Gender & Diversity In The Industry

I’ve been wanting to write a post (or series of posts) about diversity in the film and television industry for some time now. And so, in recent weeks when the majority of the general public were been suddenly exposed to this long-standing issue, after Jade-Pickett and Will Smith decided to decline their invitations to the upcoming…

Top Trailers

Since writing my post on the upcoming DC feature Suicide Squad I have been doing a little more research of trailers released for films in 2016. Its safe to say that once again we’re in for a hell of a year in film; which therefore makes it yet another hard year of decisions for me….

Since it’s valentines weekend I thought I’d share with you a review of my favourite romantic comedy feature. I’ll share with you the reasons why I always go back to this film if I’m stuck for something to watch. This feature is written and directed by Richard Curtis and it focuses on the Lake family…

Suicide Squad: Trailer Review

I’ve never looked into doing a trailer review before, however my boyfriend suggested it and it seemed like a good idea – so here’s a review of a trailer for something admittedly a little bit different to what I would normally go to watch; DC’s Suicide Squad. If, like me you’re almost completely oblivious to the…

My Trip Around the East Coast: Part 4

Day 13: 29/07/15 My dad planned for us to go whale-watching off the coast of Cape Cod today, I can honestly say that it was one of the most amazing experiences seeing so many whales up close; another wonderful memory I’ll not forget for a long time.  The only down-side to this day was, partly…

My Trip Around the East Coast: Part 3

Day 9: 25/07/15 Luckily the weather cheered up, although it was still considerably less warm than NYC! We headed off to the other side of the island to visit ‘Arcadia National Park’, a huge green  expanse which covers the majority of the island. We stopped at some of the tourist points in the parks, including…
