For the video production module in my degree this year, I took part in a group project. We were lucky enough to meet Jack Porter, a man who took part in the second world war. Jack was such a humble and inspiring man and we all felt extremely grateful towards him for not only donating his time to us, but also sharing his emotional stories for the world to see. See the video below for a story that made all of us involved think about the sacrifices people have made, not only for our live, but also for a better future.
In my free time I usually concentrate on my music. My absolute passion in life is playing the drums and the band I practice with feel like part of my beating heart. The band are an all girl, three piece alternative rock group named the ‘Blonde Lips’ (based on an eccentric wig Lady Gaga once wore) and we’ve been making music together since 2011.
This band is massively important to me, so as you can imagine I was more than thrilled when we got to visit the recording studios at Salford University for a day session. It proved a steep learning curve for all three of us and we’re hoping to get more music recorded in the near future.

Our vocalist Elena, looking rather happy with herself.
I’ve taken the track that was recorded on the day on as a little side production project for myself. It’s getting there, but I feel it still needs some small touches before it’s ready to make it’s way into our fans eardrums.
Hopefully I will be able to share the track in the next month, so I’ll keep you posted!
Had a crazy few months of life just being life and now I’m finally back to hit my wordpress with some serious posts. There’s been a lot going on recently, from finishing off second year at uni, to recording music with my band and gaining a new part-time job. Finally I have some time to sit with my laptop and get to share some exciting things.
I’ll keep this post short and sweet. Here’s a little mobile film I made for a module in my degree a few months ago called “Food For Thoughts”. Give it a view, but beware, you’ll most probably want to eat something afterwards!
