This Is My 2016 – ZINE No.8


So the year just gone was a pretty big one
for me. THIS IS MY 2016
It started off in Skegness, 3 whales got washed up , I went to film it as they were removed. I filmed alongside the BBC, ITV, SKY, big
tv people, it was mental. “I’ts so smelly right now, Dad can’t cope
with the smelliness.” My film got in the papers I was stoked. Next I started vlogging. Notts Uni Meeting Yolanda about a film for
Uni with my sister Emily. “What are those?” “What are those?” Then as a family band my dad sister and me
were asked to play music at a Macmillian charity event conference with a bunch of free merch
it, it was cool. “Oh no!! Alchoholic Pancakes happened , with the whole
squad surprisingly. We made a bit of a mess but it was hilarious. Thanks guys. “Oh that’s revolting!” “You’ve ruined the whole night.” The family band, I got a new vlogging compact
camera. We’re on Vlog No.5 now and i’m going to Bottesford

dad, we got lost. I discovered grilled cheese! Had a council meeting, met John and lazy Alex

me. “I’m ready on time.” Back to nottingham on the train. Bagel Nash was discovered, I love that place. Filmed a day of table tennis and saw a bunch
of old faces. “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.” Then music in the garage, it was the Day I
Died. Me and John went to Nottingham, John bought
jeans, stalled. Filming the campaign video again with Yolanda
and had a gym all to myself. GAINS. I LOST IT ALL, a whole vlog day wasted and
took way too many attempts trying to hang a picture on the wall. Got Maccies with Alex and he drove me to the

my head, funtimes, thanks for the support from everyone who came. And then i was bald… It was freezing then i was attacked by cows. Editing and filming at home then for some
reason i was hungover as hell, lots of gear and we went camping (need to go again). Then Lots of talking, my bloody camera broke,
back to notts, a ruggish film meeting, lunch with Madz and Tessa, Grantham £1 pizza and

in the car. Playing music in the studio, Reasons Not To
Be An Idiot. Nottingham Filmset , maccies breakfast which

it was a wrap. Belton Horse Trials and i didn’t pay to get

with Cain, someone knocked over my camera, mad shopping, then Planet Bounce trampoline
park – absolutely awesome! Then on Autonomy film set for a whole week. It was brilliant. Had a good wiz on a segway, first time ever
and I was a boom op. So a week later I stayed in Nottingham. We explored an abandoned mill where I saw
the best sky of the year from the top of an abandoned mill. It was beautiful. To London next. I went, it was Brexit, with Toms and Tessa
to a huge protest. That was nuts. But I made a cool film. Took a family trip to Majorca. Somewhere in this I went to Sheffield and
Cumbria And I began Zines! “Welcome to Zines.” I had the most mental holiday in Kavos with
some of my bestest of friends. To top off my year I finished in my home town
Blackpool. Poulton with my family and I did a handstand
on the glass floor of Blackpool Tower. Stoked. Bye Poulton. Last one in London, saying goodbye. And goodbyes are the worst. So to sum up. I’ve had the best year of my life this year. It’s been awesome, practically spending a
year making movies and travelling. It’s gonna be real hard to top it next year,
but it will be done and I’m so grateful to all the people I’ve met this year, especially
to my friends and family for being there. You’re all amazing. “Thanks again, I love you all. See you soon in 2017. It’s gonna be an insane year. Adios people.”
