Graduation - congratulations everyone!

Congratulations every at the end of another great year 2015-16! I have said in the past that the graduation photos are for me on this day - but this year I asked to share photos - so here is one to represent the day.  I also wanted to mention the honour we received, Lara Bauerle was the 'student responder' this year tat graduation - so she read out the speech for all of the Institute of Work Based Learning Programme. Thanks for doing this Lara!

I was able to "clap loudly' form my front row seat as everyone crossed the stage - and was thinking of all those who have completed their studies this year (and past cohorts!) and the hard work everyone has done. It is not easy working and studying at the same time - and it is a real achievement.  Many on BAPP Arts go onto a next step - or are thinking about it. We do what we can to help because sustaining the benefits from the degree is important - so please stay in touch if there is anything we can do to help.

'Portfolio karma'

I have sent round emails with directions - that is my PL role - as a tutor I wish you well.

Both Adesola and I have been through these types of submissions...

When I taught printmaking I used to call it 'press karma' because if you were too nervous abut putting the paper onto the plate to print - it would shift and make a mark.

So this would be 'portfolio karma'.

Calm - not at the very last minute - and we are there to help.

Using research from hyperlinks - ex. film and gender

I was looking at this article today on the Guardian website

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/may/04/movies-boys-club-break-it-up-film-industry

which led to this report form the UK Directors about gender and film directors
Often you can ink to goo d sources very quickly  this days - the power of the hyperlink!

https://www.directors.uk.com/news/cut-out-of-the-picture


and then I saw this earlier report.

http://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/may/04/give-half-of-uk-film-funding-to-project-led-by-women-directors-say

Ilona - will mention when we speak.

What is quite irritating with doing inquiries is that these things do have the habit of popping up at the last minutes as you are finalising drafts!!

Hope that helps - you might have a pop up source - so worth a google... or look at places you know have good information.
