    • film and photog theory – research Westminster courses
    • Unit 6 – blog – evidence research for UCAS

My tutorial with Lauren came at exactly the right time, as I was really struggling at this point and I had already reached out to Mark previously.
Lauren was understanding and helped to calm any nerves or anxieties I had surrounding the issue of work, aswell as an in-depth chat about future plans and almost reassuring me that my thoughts and feelings were valid. I think this will help a lot as I move to collect research for Unit 6.

Although not very clear in the notes, I seem to remember we discussed leaving my sketchbook and working solely on here, so I feel that I really have to make sure all the content on here is clear and looking aesthetically pleasing, if I wanted it to match the aesthetic that I do enjoy working towards in a sketchbook. I feel like I want to include a lot more visual influences, creating digital moodboards, analytical artist/filmmaker/ film/photography analysis as a constant stream of influence, even if I don’t use aspects of their work within my own. Before I embark on this though, I definitely need to catch up, and use my time to my best ability, because although I work, the level of detail I strive to include leaves me behind as in an hour I could produce 4 pieces of work instead of 1. This is definitely something to work on – recognising the need for a shorter piece and stopping when I’ve covered th basics.
