On Tuesday I finished my Masters in Wildlife Filmmaking, and so from here I take the plunge into the big wild world of trying to get a job. Although that’s actually not really the case, as I’ll be travelling to America on Thursday to volunteer at Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, but after THAT I’llContinue reading “The Drills of Afi Mountain”
So after nearly nine months of work, I’ve very nearly finished off my Masters film, which is now called The Drills of Afi Mountain. The film will be ready in the next few days (so watch this space!), but in the meantime here is my trailer. Remember to watch in HD, and enjoy!
It’s been a couple of weeks since we all had to present our ideas for our final films, and things are getting exciting (and stressful)! I’ll be filming my final film at Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary in Cross River State, Nigeria, and it will be about the great work that the guys there do andContinue reading “Final Film Excitement”
It’s the New Year, and a while since I’ve had the time to write a blog post.

Eager to see how high the bar would be set, this year’s students sat among employees from both the BBC and the independent sector as theyContinue reading “Inspiration and High Standards from Last Year’s MA Wildlife Filmmakers”
So last week I heard back from UWE about the results of my MA interview and… I was successful! There’s not much else that I can say at this point apart from the fact that I’m obviously really excited, and if you want to hear more about how the course is you’ll have to stickContinue reading “Results!”
It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I returned from Lagos, and I have been pretty busy. I’ve had 2 interviews – one for the RSPB and one for my MA Wildlife Filmmaking course – and while the preparation for them hasn’t been too difficult, it has been rather time consuming, involving watching a lot ofContinue reading “Interviews and Garden News”
I know it’s been a while since I posted anything on here, and that’s partly due to me not having anything worthwhile to post and partly due to my own laziness. But, I have decided to make a conscious effort to change my ways and become a much more regular blogger so be ready forContinue reading “Spring 2014 Update: A New Idea for a New Year”
