To Thine Own Selfie Be True

Production still from a really busy day at the Lowewood Museum yesterday where we were filming with Liam Mercer from the 10th Essex Regiment Great War Living History Group, Ciara Jane Fleming from The Valle Academy of Performing Arts , and Caitlin one of the many members of Lowewood Museum’s Youth Panel who were filming. Of course Lowewood Museum’s tiger Ben kept a ready eye on proceedings.Only a few more days of shooting left on the Youth Panel’s short film “Absolutely”, which is kindly supported by Royal Opera House Bridge .

Lights, Camera, Museum

We had a fantastic evening filming at Hertfordshire’s Lowewood Museum. We were filming for their new short film “Absolutely” . One of the great things about the Hoddesdon based museum is they not only make you welcome but also make every visit fun.


Just the Ticket

Up early creating a prop for our Youth Panel Film we’re making with Lowewood Museum. Or up early playing with STAEDTLER pencils, sharpeners, and bits of paper…


North by Not Quite Northish

Just stopped for a coffee, turned round and there he was. Can’t quite place him… Sure I’ve seen him somewhere. Albeit fleetingly… 


And On The Panel…

Looking forward to working with the Youth Panel from Lowewood Museum in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire on their new short film. Such a fantastic museum with a great programme and such interesting exhibits. 


The Silver Darlings


I saw this fantastic old film, recently, set in Scotland called: The Silver Darlings. It was from the 1940s and neither Gordon Jackson nor Finlay Currie were in it. Still a good film though.
And with new videos and films being created and uploaded by the second how can you ever hope to catch up?
It got me thinking. How can you sort the good from the bad from the great to the wish I hadn’t bothered? 
Are there too many choices or are we not focused on what we really want? 


Unexpected Delights

Snapped this while filming in London. Not quite a Tardis but it’s definitely an old police phone box. Always brightens the dullest of days when you come across the unexpected. Such a great place for not only heritage but also culture.
