The Don’t Touch Campaign

The Don’t Touch Campaign

Entertainment, Music
Words: Joanne Clark | Subbing: Bernadette Galbraith As allegations of sexual assault and harassment in the music industry come to light, I talk to Melissa Svensen, creator of the Don't Touch Campaign. As part of a module on her Multimedia Journalism course, Melissa Svensen was given a brief - "Identify a subject or issue for a piece of campaigning or investigative journalism and produce a series of articles for publication." And so she chose an issue that she was already aware of in the world of music. Melissa is no stranger to the music industry. Gigs are a regular part of her social life, and she writes about music on a successful blog, of which she is editor. Her campaign is centred around an issue that has come to light more and more throughout the past couple of months - sexua...
The most comfortable cinema experience ever?

The most comfortable cinema experience ever?

Entertainment, Film & TV
Words & images: Joanne Clark | Subbing: Bernadette Galbraith Independent cinemas are dotted all around London, but have you ever been to one? I spoke to the cinema manager of one of the newest (and oldest) independent cinemas in the city. Growing up, going to the cinema was something my family did fairly regularly, although it wasn't until I grew older that my love for cinema really developed. Sometimes we would go to the Genesis Cinema in Stepney, and on special occasions, we would go to the premiere Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square. I have a fond memory of watching one of the earlier Harry Potter films in the huge premiere screen, and feeling like I was somewhere particularly incredible. This summer, I spent half of my life in the cinema, watching new releases and taking adv...

Harry Dirtface: quirky rapper talks about inspiration for his new project ‘The Joyride’

Entertainment, Music, Uncategorized
Words: Isabella Dawe | Subbing: Lavinia Petrucci We caught up with rapper and producer Harry Dirtface to talk about his upcoming release 'The Joyride' Harry Dirtface, formerly known as Dirty Harry, is a Nottingham-born hiphop artist with a unique and eccentric style. Tracks titled 'Sloppy Toppy' and 'Leanwithmycrew' paint him as a drug-taking, womanising, trap-inspired rebel. But his impressive self-made instrumentals and clear influences from genres including punk, rock and blues make him one to watch in 2018. You recently started dropping tracks from your first project, The Joyride. What can you tell us about that? The joyride is about me living life, taking some drugs here and there. There were some tracks that I had, I threw them together and got some nice art work drawn up. ...

Meet Natasza Cetner: A London-based Surrealist Animator

Arts, Entertainment
Words: Isabella Dawe Subbing: Tracey Popoola We got to know more about Natasza Cetner, a London-based Polish animator who's award-winning work explores surrealism and symbolism.  Natasza moved to London in 2014 to study her BA in Animation at the University of Westminster. Since then she has created three short films all of which have been recognised at international festivals, and her animations have received awards both in the U.K. and overseas. Her work is beautiful and sometimes haunting, and she possesses the unique talent of being able to present the ordinary from an intensely interesting perspective. Where do you draw most influence or inspiration from? What makes you want to create? I would say that the first thing that springs to my mind is the realistic way of picturi
