Filming at the British Psychological Society

Filming at the British Psychological Society

I’ve spent the last couple of days filming a small conference and set of seminars at the British Psychological Society in London.

This proved truly fascinating and the chair Professor Paul Grantham really brought this subject, solution focused brief therapy, to life. I briefly studied some neuroscience as part of my undergraduate degree in cybernetics and AI, but this is the first time I’ve really been engaged with academics in the field of psychology.

What was really special about this filming work though was that it was part of a live webcast. The platform used, Oli Gaffikin’s Global Podium, is a great piece of kit! It’s not just a very robust video streaming service, but it really places remote participants in the heart of the seminar environment by means of a parallel stream for additional material, slides, videos etc… Remote participants can interact with their in-situ peers through a specialised messaging service.

Animation workshops with Chocolate Films

Animated films made by kids, youths, adults, seniors and people with learning disabilities.
These have all been produced in extra-curricular workshops taught by myself.

I regularly work with charities, schools, museums and other centres of learning to lead workshops in animation. The mediums we work with include stop motion using 2D or 3D forms, paper, plasticine etc… as well as 2D and 3D computer based animation.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

This may have been the day I lost the source of all my powers. But it was worth it!

I had around twenty-one inches of hair cut off which was apparently enough to make three wigs.
Using the £1070 I raised Little Princess Trust will have these wigs produced and then delivered to three young sufferers of chemotherapy induced hair loss.

And a special thanks to Uffizi in South West London for kindly cutting my hair.
