I’m finally getting somewhere with this action trailer, the final piece of work in my trailer collection (also the last bit of work I can do before I get the footage from Jade’s and Dave’s films, which they are yet to shoot), and so far, I’m really enjoying the process.
So here it is, in all it’s glory. I’m really pleased with the end result, and while there may be a few tweaks made here and there over the next few months before hand-in in May, this is pretty much it:
The last few weeks have been mainly taken up with dissertation work, but now that my first draft is all done and handed in, I can finally get back to what I love most about this year…the freedom to just edit…everything and anything I want. I love it.
Oh man I’m craving some travel escapades right now, I mean seriously, I can’t sit still and I’m this close to packing a bag, grabbing my sleeping bag, tent and of course passport (for those just-in-case, you-never-know-what-could-happen moments) and jumping into my car for an impromptu road trip.

I’ve spent the last 5 days working solidly on my showreel and it is finally complete!

Now that my lovely, beautiful, sunny holiday in Mauritius is over and my friends have all gone home after our New Year’s celebrations in London, it is back to the grind of work work work, dissertation, dissertation, dissertation. And I’ve got to say it’s thoroughly depressing. The only thing keeping me going is the thought … More Post-holiday, Pre-uni blues
I am making progress. At least I hope so. I’ve made a start on two of my essays, the contextual one about the role of the editor, and the write-up of my work experience placements. They’re going pretty well – although at the moment they’re more in the planning stages than the actual writing phase. … More (3) Progress
Over the last week I’ve been busy planning out what I’m going to be doing for my final project. Last week I mentioned what is going to be in my portfolio, and since then I’ve been working on a few more ideas, particularly for my showreel, as this is the section that I can really … More (2) Organising + Starting
So, for my Uni Practical Project Portfolio, I’ve been asked to keep a blog about what I’m getting up to and the progress I’m making with my work. I’m doing an Editing skills portfolio, so I’ll be editing a couple of films and making some trailers. Sounds more like fun than work really, doesn’t it?!
Here’s my final film for 2nd year at Uni…I was Director on this one. I hope you like it. http://www.youtube.com/v/D496Es7MTNw&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0
