BVE North 2011

It was a long drive to Manchester for this years BVE North expo. 205 miles to be exact. Taking place at the Manchester Central Arena, the expo is a gathering of products and services for broadcast, video and audio professionals.

For me, I was interested in three seminars;

  • How To Be A Successful Freelancer
  • Blackpool Tower 4D Case Study
  • Things A Studio Director Should Know

I was pleased I managed to attend. I learned a few things from the above seminars and I also managed to catch up with people I had heard of but never met. My first tweet of the morning was just to say I had arrived and realised that The Crewing Company were also in attendance. It wasn’t till the end of the day where we managed to meet up, but I am glad I did. Lovely people!

Big Brother 2011: The Winner

Aaron Allard walked away with £50’000 prize money alongside an additional £10’000. In the last week of Big Brother 2011 the housemates were told the prize money was being split from £100’000 into two halves. Even although Alex was given £30’000, Jay was given £15’000, Louise was given £4000, Aaron was given £990 and Tom was given £10, they opted to put the money together outside of the programme and split it equally.
