The Documentary which I have been editing for the past few months is finally complete and has now been given a name. This project has been an absolute dream for me to discover and work on and I am pleased to say that “MS, Mexico & Me: Aileen’s Story” will be shared onto the Black Thistle Media Facebook page on Thursday the 28th of June.
Aileen is just such an incredible human being and I look forward to sharing her story with you.
The 28th of June also happens to be the same day that I graduate from my course at Napier University in Edinburgh. So I would just like to take a second to thank all of my family and friends who have been around for me for the past 4 years I have spent in higher education, your support and encouragement is what has helped me achieve what I have today.
Since my last blog post I have been hit by “The Beast from the East”, several hours of editing, Bafta events, trips for brunch in fantastic places and I have had to move flats several times. However at the same time I have also been working on a number of different productions.
A few I would just like to note: Documentary “Walking in my Shoes”, the National Museum of Scotland’s “Rip It Up” Music Videos, Short Films “Standing On A Bridge, On Fire” and “Sacrament”. Please check out these links if you have a spare second as they are all very much worth watching or liking on Facebook until they are released.
Also you may have seen I recently had the pleasure of getting to film the Loch Ness RNLI Opening Ceremony at the end of May and conducted interviews with members of the crew on the day. The RNLI is such a fantastic organisation and I am currently working on some short videos for social media which will be shared very soon so, keep an eye out for those.
After a good few intense months of work I am going to take a short break as many people have encouraged me to do.
My plans for after Graduating are to relocate to Glasgow by the end of the year and seek further projects and employment from there. This is an incredibly exciting and daunting decision but one I am sure I won’t regret.
There is always anxiety with these kinds of decisions but to give further reassurance if I was Luke Skywalker in Star Wars and I was saying that "I will try to move forward with my life" the wise Yoda would turn to me and say: “Do, or do not. There is no try”.
So the answer is obvious "do".
Thank you so much for reading!
