Second of many!

Hi!

For the last few weeks students have been campaigning around my university to be elected as the next Student Union president. It has been quite interested, seen ridiculous posters dotted around the uni, and people wearing t-shirts and so on.
Last night was the evening where all the nominated students would get up on stage and make their speeches to everyone else in the SU. Was quite a decent evening, however it started at around 6pm, so by the time it finished I had a few beers, so I was feeling it, thinking the time was around 10! but was only 7:30ish. Reminds me of a Lee Evans quote, if you know what I'm on about...
Basically was a decent evening, and I was expecting to know who I want to vote for at the end of the night, but however each candidate have their own good outlook on what they want to do if they're elected. So I am quite stuck on who to decide.
I better decide by tomorrow, as its ELECTION DAY! exciting stuff.

That is enough from me. As usual check my online portfolio for what I'm interested in! www.matthew-hoare.com

First of many!

Okay this is my first blog on this site, so bare with me if its a bit ropey in places.

A fair bit has happened to me in the last few days. I shall start from my Monday (27th April) happenings... Regularly whenever I am free, I spend some time to e-mail production companies for some work experience, in particular I sent one to Endemol around 4/5 months ago enquiring about helping out with the new series of Big Brother in the summer. Sure enough yesterday morning out of the blue, I receive an e-mail from Endemol saying they are interested in taking me on for 2 weeks work placement for the new series of Big Brother.
Straight away I download the application form fill it out and send it straight back them. This would be such a good leap forward for me with my experience in the media, and fingers crossed they I will be accepted for a placement.

In the evening I make my 3rd appearance at a meet up networking meeting for independent film makers. Again I struggle a little to make the initial breaking ice with people and starting up a conversion. But once I start talking there was no stopping me. This time I came prepared with my own business cards, for people to keep in contact with me. I found this was very useful as I saw other people in the room with a notepad jotting down peoples details, so this was a lot faster and efficient method. However on the cards this website is not included as I ordered the batch of cards before I made this site, I need to quickly order a new batch with this website included before the next meeting.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy.
