An old ukulele student of mine has started up in business as a photographer and came by my boat last week for a cheeky little photoshoot …you can see some of the photos above/below and find our more about the rest of his excellent work here – http://stevenanthonyphotography.co.uk/
There has recently been a flurry of interest in my track ‘Hackney Gentrification Song’ with local publications N16 Magazine, Dalston TV and Hackney Post all giving it virtual shout outs.
It has also come to the attention of the film crew making ESTATE, a non-fiction feature film about a Hackney estate which is soon to be bulldozed. You can find out more about the film here and have a look at the ‘behind the scenes’ section of the site which uses my song.
On Tuesday I had the joy of being filmed and interviewed on my boat for a documentary about gentrification by French-German cultural TV channel ARTE.
They had stumbled across my Hackney Gentrification Song and wanted to find out the story.
A lovely guy called Brett has been in contact about using some of my music in a documentary he has made on the emerging skateboarding scene in Egypt.
He currently has a kickstarter campaign going to raise money for this – have a peek at the trailer below and do head over here to see more – http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1120573517/slipping-skates-impact-on-egypt
