Extra Sonic Practice (ESP) is a group of scholars and artists from the University of Lincoln who work with sound in multiple contexts and configurations. Playfully and knowingly (re)appropriating the abbreviation from its origin – Extra Sensory Perception – ESP is a response to the growing prevalence of sound within various disciplinary contexts.

It’s coming up to a year since I got the job at Videojug Networks and flocked South to London. I started working there as a production and office assistant and got heavily involved in all aspects of the company from the start. Most notably, I was a camera op for a couple of Russell Hobbs and John Lewis shoots as well as filming (and tail operating) for the most famous fox in the world, Basil. When my 6 month contract ended, I was promoted to production secretary which is my current job role. It’s now my job to schedule the shoots and edits for all original Videojug productions and help across brand shoots when required. It was a couple of months ago when I realised that I need to start thinking about my next steps. I love working at Videojug and don’t intend on leaving for a while but I now appreciate the importance of having to constantly think ahead to what comes next. Especially in London.
I’ve always loved cooking and frequently joked about needing to find a job that combines film and food but I recognised how difficult it is to find such a niche job. So I decided to take matters in to my own hands with Alexander Whitcombe for our joint project called How To Kitchen. It aims to be an entertaining channel for everyone, not just food lovers. This is episode 3: House of Cards – Patriotic Cake.
It has been my overall dream for a long while, that I want to pay my way through life, through my creative means. Meaning I want to eat, pay my rent, travel and have fun all from payment through my creative outlets and ONLY through my creative outlets. No part time/ full time PAYE jobs. Straight self-employment through my writing, acting and modelling (though the latter is very few and far between).
ACTING: So I have been in various plays this year in various theatres and each one has come from the last. I was recommended for a role for a scratch night at the Waterloo East theatre with Whoop ‘n’ Wail. The play was called Three Women in a Music Box written by Dan Horrigan and directed by Alice Bonifacio and I played Cora. It went down a treat with the audience along with the critics and gained 5 stars ∗∗∗∗∗ I received my first review from it: Continue reading

Don’t miss 2013 Media Production graduates Nathan Dean and Sam Clarke’s work-in-progress. They’ll be staging a 60-minute performance of We Have Offended. It’s at LPAC this Wednesday evening and tickets are free. Here’s an official extract from Lincoln Performing Arts Centre:
Wednesday 22 January | 8:45pm | FREE
Who is Robin Goodfellow? In this revitalisation of Shakespeare classics, We Have Offended follows Robin and The Weyward Sisters as they create a piece of unrelenting horror; torturing and tormenting the audience with secret audio and nightmarish projections. Continue reading
