Excerpt: In 1994, 22 years ago, my son was born; that year also coincided with the stirrings of the World Wide Web. In those dark days of the mid 90’s – I had only 1 day off for my son’s birth – the day of the birth. It was a home delivery. I remember it well; I spent the morning duck taping plastic sheeting to the floor; it was needed as was the bucket for the placenta. I helped deliver him and cut the cord. The school had Ofsted that day and I had a wry smile knowing what I’d…

Why I have been away and why course deadlines have been missed

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Why I have been away and why course deadlines have been missed

After a new start with the L4L podcast several weeks ago I fell by the wayside, not because I’ve been shirking – far from it – I’ve just been overwhelmed by paid work! The video should explain a few things. Part of the problem(?) has been I’ve had to update kit for ever increasing production values for clients – so I’ve had a steep learning curve as well as limited time. The positive side is that I now have a full video mixing post-production suite and it’s wonderful. You will see some of the fruits of this tomorrow onwards – I hope!
