I directed and produced this #MusicVideo for #NewBritishBand @redtailsbanduk for £0 this Summer to give #bcotmedia students work experience on set and in post-production.
Thank you so much again to every one who has supported the project.
If you like this Blog, my Prezis, Facebook, or Twitter page it would be enormously helpful if you could help a hustling Media Lecturer out and share the #BrighterPlace video with your people to help the band and my students gain exposure.
We are aiming for 10,000 views and at the time of writing we are at 9,290.
If you could ‘Like’ it on YouTube….well, that would be just swell.

Here’s one way to get noticed in a tough job market. Digital artist Patrick Thorendahl posts hilarious images on his Facebook and Instagram accounts in which he plugs himself into photographs with various celebrities. He recently spoke with The Daily Dot about his Photoshop wizardry and revealed that he typically chooses pictures that have been trending in social media, like the infamous photo of R&B singer Miguel kicking a fan during a stage dive. This might just be a clever plan to land a job, as his webpage currently features an image of himself towering above New York City wearing a “Hire Me” T-shirt.

PHOTOGRAPHY #DazedandConfused COMPETITION
[Contact me if you are interested]
I hope this finds you well. I’m writing from Dazed & Confused Magazine because we thought that your students might be interested in our Lowlight Photography Competition we have just opened.
We’ve partnered with Nokia and Talenthouse to give 3 aspiring photographers the chance to join Nokia’s official photography team in New Zealand and have their work featured in our influential style magazine.
All they need to do to enter is submit an “urban city/street style” themed photo that has been captured in “low light” conditions. We’re looking for something imaginative that really expresses the creativity and mentality of the urban lifestyle.
This is an amazing opportunity & prize for anyone interested in photography and who would like to travel to New Zealand - which I can imagine will be most of your students!
We have enlisted the help of renowned street photographer, Tyrone LeBon to select 50 finalists who will receive the new Nokia Lumia 925 smartphone ‘trial’ devices. Each finalist will be asked to upload their low light photos, captured on the Nokia Lumia 925 to their Talenthouse Portfolios.
Here is a link to our launch article which will give you some more information:http://www.dazeddigital.com/photography/article/16361/1/tyrone-lebon
Have a look and let me know if this is something you think your students might be interested in?
All the best,
@redtailsbanduk have contacted us about creating a Music Video for their first single ‘Brighter Place’.
This is a great opportunity for your CV so someone who is keen to volunteer would be ideal. The band may be able to pay expenses but this is good exposure for an up and coming band as the finished music video will be uploaded to YouTube and used on their own website which is currently being made.
Please contact Colette Francis-Lee on Red Tails FB or Twitter OR contact me if you are interested.

FILM WORK EXPERIENCE
@ukhealthradio @healthkicksshow, the new not-for-profit health and wellness talk radio station which launched last December, is attending the MedXpo health professionals event in London on 4-6 July: www.medxpo.com
There are a number of very high profile speakers giving lectures - including some Nobel Prize winners and the Health Ministers from The Republic of Yemen and of Saudi Arabia.
#bcotmedia students have been given a chance to record the lectures and broadcast them at a later date on UK Health Radio.
If you are interested in gaining invaluable experience with travel costs and refreshments covered you would get an interesting experience of recording a live event that would be covered in Health Triangle Magazine ( www.HealthTriangleMagazine.com ).
The broadcasts would be included in the weekly Health Kicks Show (www.HealthKicksShow.co.uk ) which is syndicated to twelve local radio stations from Birmingham and Liverpool to Budapest and Arizona.
If this is of any interest please let me know so we can arrange a meet up with the producers to begin planning.

Val Cullum has offered #bcotmedia students a great opportunity to film this year’s ‘Cullum Dance Academy’ show.
Here is the information from Val…
It will be held on Friday 19th & Saturday 20th July 2013 with a technical run through on Thursday 18th.
There are six sections in this year’s show, 3 themed 3 non themed.
The themed sections are:
Attention – Military style
Angels and Demons – Dark Gothic style
Las Vegas – Burlesque/showgirl style
The non themed section
In the Mix 1, 2, 3 - contains singing and various dance style including freestyle, street, ballet, Irish and contemporary.
We would like to give your students the opportunity to come along and film the show, from the tech run to the performance.
The tech run gives you the chance to see behind the scene, for the set up and running of the show. It involves lighting, staging and sound, it also gives you an understanding of filming a live theatre performance, how to connect filming equipment to the sound decks and setting the placement of the cameras for the best shots. You will also get to see the performance before the actual show to give you a better understanding of where the dancers/performers are placed on the stage.
Doing two shows gives the film crew a chance to record the first and pick up on any errors with light, staging etc, and then have the opportunity to re film on the following evening’s performance.
As soon as I have Times for the Tech run I will let you know.
Thanking you in advance
