Having been a life long supporter of Southampton Football Club, from the darkest Branfoot years to the present Shexy Football Koeman years, it is with great fondness that Saints Fan TV is born. Around a year or two ago, a friend suggested doing a fans-related channel but the time and effort required just didn’t fit in with my schedule and workload at the time. Working for free is something i’m not particularly fond off, although SFTV will hopefully bring in some income via YouTube advertising and local sponsors, it’s still a huge amount of work to carry out for little immediate reward. It really is a case of doing something you love and anything else that comes by is just a bonus.
Presently there are a growing number of videos focused on the finding out the opinions of Saints fans after the matches with Match Day Previews too which feature Lets Play of FIFA 16.
Having worked with Fashion Blogger and QVC Presenter Alex Willis-Bray with South West London TV for 6 months or so, I was invited to work on a brand spanking new online TV show just for Men!
Certainly, having covered London Fashion Week and then, in January 2014 London Collections Men, there is a clear lack of fashion presence for Men. Alex and I were more or less the only TV crew filming celebrities, designers and fashionistas just before they headed into the showrooms.
I filmed for 4 episodes at London Collections Men – Mens Fashion Week and at Fara Workshop in Angel, Islington. View series 1 below:
Fara is a place where every piece for sale is completely unique because it is hand made on site. Fabric is donated via their charity shops as they have been operating as a charity for over 20 years to help disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in Romania.
Not only can you buy unique, one-of-a-kind clothing, but you can get hold of homeware and unique illustrations and artwork because they give residencies to emerging fine artists, illustrators and photographers – see the postcard below from artist in resident Dan Jamieson:
