As an aspiring entrepreneur, I have my fingers in many pies! One of these pies is Southend Who? which is a blog that reports on the fantastic music of Southend-on-Sea and beyond. We were invited to cover the Essex music festival Village Green last year. The plan was to get some backstage footage and interviews with the bands. We had a presenter and camera operator lined up, but they both pulled out last minute! Disaster!
Being the consummate professionals we are, Mikey Glenister and myself decided to go ahead and give it a go ourselves. How hard could it be? Our camera was my phone, our script was whatever came into my head and my fuel was many beers. With everything now in place I threw myself into my first ever presenting gig.
We are very pleased with the results. Boozing aside, I hope they reflect my personality and passion! I always think when you're faced with the unknown you should always go for it and give it everything you have. Very often you will surprise yourself!
You can expect similar stuff in front of the camera once my streaming content starts appearing.
