It's been a busy last few days. I was asked to cut a trailer from the footage of my friends musical - 'Melania', by Brooks & King, which was fun. The action takes place in the Whitehouse and focuses on Melania Trump being guided through these dark hours by the former First Ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jackie Kennedy.
The lyrics and music are amazing, and even though I had been to see the musical at the Oran Mor in Glasgow's Westend, and knew how awesome it was, and how much the audience loved it, I relished the chance to have repeated viewings, and every time I cut a scene, I noticed something new in the actresses performances. The three women who portrayed the First Ladies were absolutely first class!
No wonder the newspapers etc gave it five star reviews!
Someone who is getting less than five star reviews is the actual President Trump, he's heading to the UK and in true Brit fashion there are lots of protests lined up to film and document. You'll have heard about the giant Trump Baby Blimp that's going to be flying in London - it's that quintessential British humour in action - polite, but pricking the ego of the manbaby it portrays.
I'll be wearing my 'Floatus Potus' t-shirt, whilst i'm dashing about recording everything.
If you're based in the UK (or worldwide), and would like one of these t-shirts for yourself then either click the image above for the redbubble shop, or for USA only, check them out on Amazon by clicking the image below.
It'll be a busy weekend as i'll be also documenting the Glasgow Gay Pride March on Saturday too. More on that, later.
Catch you soon,
Whit's he up tae noo?
