I wrote on this blog, about a month ago, about a project I've been working on with Scottish broadcaster STV to bring their television archive to a new audience on YouTube. The last fortnight has seen my first major piece of work come to fruition with the release of 1979's Charles Endell, Esquire.
On Thursday I headed to Glasgow to give the talk mentioned here a few weeks ago, Now you’re talking! – e-copywriting for all your audiences for the busy team behind the AmbITion network.
The last time I posted an update on this blog I was recovering from a hectic week of Festival fun and games here in Edinburgh, that time of the year when the population doubles and your bank balance halves.
It's been a busy week-and-a-bit, my first working fully freelance, and one which found me filming new content for ReelScotland, interviewing a hero, writing about another and gaining yet another in the environs of the Edinburgh International Book Festival (EIBF).
I was invited back onto BBC Radio Scotland's weekly Movie Café programme this week (I was last on in January when I covered Bristol's silent film festival, Slapstick 2010) to discuss the re-release of James Cameron's Avatar and Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist.
Thoughts on the importance of writing for the web and how it's often overlooked.
I try out audiobooing for the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Luckily, working for a small Edinburgh web design agency with various high-profile clients, I'm able to write (and edit, film, blog, tweet...you name it, I probably do it) every day, covering a range of subjects including health issues, education, tourism, charity work and the arts.
