These are the shelves that house all of the films I’ve collected and curated over the years; – and there’s a little bit of everything, from Disney to Ghibli, Marvel to Martin McDonagh. I’ve shared book shelf tours a couple of times before on my channel but never went into detail about my collection of films, however, since I’ve been having fun creating my one-minute film reviews it felt apt to share these with you now!
What are your favourite films? Are you a collector of movies?

A self-portrait : 29 / 12 / 17
Hello there 2018!
I, like many others, am hoping that this year will be the sensational third act of this three-year-long tragicomedy. 2017 was a good year for me; I saw my short film being made into a real tangible thing, I completed my A-Levels with pretty pleasing results, I went to film school, and I moved to London for University! So I can only hope that 2018 is even better. As they say: ‘new year, new me’!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
So the presents have been unwrapped, dinners have been eaten, and the candles are burning low as the Christmas lights twinkle in the strangely empty trees. That means one thing: Christmas day is very nearly over. Me and my family will likely now be arguing over what movie to watch to tie up this lovely, yet long, day. (Hopefully, I’ll get my way and we’ll put our feet up to Rogue One!) It seems that it’s a very common tradition to end this special day with a movie, whether it’s the latest release or a Christmas classic; so I thought it would be fitting to share seven of the most Christmassy scenes in Christmas movies to round it all off – not that I won’t be watching these all year long, yes, even Continue reading
As I mentioned in my last post (which you can watch and read here) I’ve left my Christmas shopping a little bit late – as I’m writing this it’s the 22nd of December and I’m sat on the floor of my local shopping centre, surrounded by busy Christmas shoppers, so I could finish my shopping and get this video uploaded at the same time. So, with a similar thought process, I decided to wrap a couple of presents and answer some Christmas Tag questions to share a little of my Christmas with you.
It’s weird for me to be leaving all these Christmas preparations to the last minute, I’m always the one Continue reading
Is it hypocritical that one of my favourite parts of living in London is that it looks like I don’t live in London?
I moved down to London at the end of September to start at university and I had never been more excited – or more nervous – for anything in my life. London has always been my favourite city; the city that, despite cheating on it with Paris, New York, Ottawa and more, I came back to every time with a loving embrace. Continue reading
If you know me you’ll know that I adore London. You’ll also know that I adore films (as well as books and the theatre!). Well, luckily for me I had the opportunity to mix those two adorations together and spent a month down in the fogs of London taking part in a practical filmmaking course run by the MET film school.
Not only was this an incredible time in regards to learning about everything to do with filmmaking, but also it meant I could get to know the city a bit better before I made the move down here for Uni: a feat I have now completed! I met some amazing people on this course too, which helped infinitely, and meant that I didn’t spend every evening stuck in my hotel room rotating between Netflix and YouTube. In fact I actually managed to do quite a lot; I saw a few films, a few plays, and a few landmarks whilst I was at it. And naturally I had to record my August spent in London, so here is the result of that. Enjoy, and be sure to let me know what you think of the video!
