About a Girl

Graduate in Film Production Technology at Staffordshire University.

I set up this blog up when I first started the course to record my thoughts and the projects I've been working on outside and within university. I hope to continue documenting my work as I learn more about the filmmaking world.

I am passionate about film, music, books, art and story-telling. It is my ambition to work within the film industry and to develop my skills over the years. At present I love script-writing, storyboarding, documentary and editing. I come from an Art and Design background, having studied at Walsall College, and have a keen interest in English Language.

My other interests include: art and design, needlework and traditional handicrafts, conservation, Girl Guiding, history, skiing, trumpet-playing and fell-walking. In 2015 I completed my Gold d of E Expedition and Queen's Guide Award. I also love games and am fairly competitive. I love laughing, silly jokes and working as part of a team.

I don’t like: wastefulness, negativity, lying, cheating, and self-opinionated people who talk too much and rarely come up for air. Oxygen is a precious commodity which ought not be wasted.

I do like: resourcefulness, creativity, honesty, positivity and self-opinionated people who listen as much as they speak.

DRAMA REVIEW: STRANGER THINGS (S1)

If you haven't heard of 'Stranger Things' by now you must have been in the Upside Down with no wifi signal to tune into Netflix. One year ago the world was plunged into an epic 80's sci-fi thriller world where Dungeons and Dragons, VHS cassettes and BMX bikes were all the rage, and now, with the eruption of Season 2 hitting our tv and mobile screens, it seems fitting to look back on where this journey began...

Since the late 1890's the imaginations of people all around the globe have been fascinated by the possibility of life on other planets and visitors from outer space. Thanks to the great early science-fiction authors such as H.G. Wells and John Wyndham, the books 'War of the Worlds' and 'The Crysalids' taught us that the scientifically impossible could be found perhaps not only amongst the stars, but amongst ourselves.

From then on humanity looked upwards, wondering, researching, hypothesising about things that should be left untouched. In the ea…

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES: REVIEW

It's been nearly 50 years since the Planet of the Apes franchise first started, and although making sequels and prequels appears to be the norm nowadays, the prequel trilogy starring Andy Serkis in the role of Caesar may prove to be one of the most popular and successful reboots to date.

Despite finally coming to the end of a brilliant new trilogy that tells the story of how the Planet of the Apes came to be, the third installment did in no way disappoint. War for the Planet of the Apes delivers an emotionally driven story that is accompanied by stunning cinematography, incredibly technical visual effects and a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack composed by the amazing Michael Giacchino.

Directed and co-written by Matt Reeves, the film delivers what everyone has been waiting for: the final battle between Apes and Humans. Having survived a disease that wiped out the majority of humankind in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the remaining survivors are faced with a choice: to spend the …

TRAILER REVIEW: STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI

Finally, after what feels like decades of waiting, it is finally here...
After the epicness of The Force Awakens, and then the Episode 4 prequel Rogue One, who knew that it was possible to get even more excited about Star Wars?

Following on from Episode 7, The Last Jedi promises more adventure, more action, and could possibly (just like The Empire Strikes Back) be overshadowed by the dark side of the force - hence the red typeface perhaps?

There were so many unanswered questions left after the last film: Who are Rey's parents? Who is Snoke? Has Luke already turned to the dark side? Will Finn survive? What is Snoke planning next? Will Kylo Ren eventually turn to the light, and be reunited with his mother? Will Leia be reunited with Luke?

Who knows? But the teaser trailer does offer enough sneak peeks to let the entire Star Wars fandom start speculating and anticipating the movie's plot. Besides, we've all watched it a million times now, right?
