I’ve recently went to see a talk at the British Library which was to do with business in the media sector.

worth the risk 1

I went to watch the Oscar winning documentary “Free Solo” this week since I had to see what the fuss was all about regarding a man climbing a rock and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I’m never quite sure of documentaries since they don’t necessarily have a narrative structure that they adhere to but on this particular … Read More

Traffic cone sing a long

The picture was taken a couple of days ago while I was walking in soho on the way to a meeting and was drawn to the echoey sounds coming from these excitable kids singing into traffic cones. I couldn’t help but smile at their playful lark and felt compelled to walk up to them and take this pic. The rest … Read More

Lets talk about reading. A topic well worth paying attention to. It may sound silly but I get the feeling that nowadays most people who commute to work via public transport waste their time either listening to music on their mobile phones, reading newspapers, which has nothing good to say, or just stare plainly into space. For example, I was … Read More

All about: REKINDLING youthful learning and create a ‘no limits’ mindset. NOT being motivated by avoidance and instead concentrating on what you DO want. EMBRACING those feelings of anxiousness and adrenalising them. FEAR – False Evidence Appearing Real and grabbing it by the balls anyway. REACHING into yourself for that little more punch.

When you look at past films which have succeeded at the box office and made a splash and an indelible impact on us, you will surely recognise one of the many reasons the films caused such a stir is perhaps to do with the antagonist of the film – the baddie.

I just finished filming in Macau for a few days with an actor you probably have heard of who goes by the name of Rowan Atkinson.
