London-based artist Thomas Duke recreates film scenes set in London (and beyond).

London is full of famous film sets, and many of them are iconic. Take the bench scene in Love Actually for example, or Mary Poppins flying over the Thames.

If you’re a bit of a set-jetter, you’ll undoubtably be a fan Thomas Duke’s artwork, where he takes stills from his favourite films to their real life locations and snaps them with the perfect backdrop. He’s been to around 150 film locations since he started the photography project, and many of them are in London.

Duke’s attention to detail is incredible — he really nails the positions, the angles and the perspective in every photo. Here are some of our favourites, but you can follow him on Instagram here.

1. Atonement – filmed at Whitehall.

2. This super-cute scene from About Time – filmed at Maida Vale station.

3. Edge of Tomorrow – filmed at the Ministry of Defence.

4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – filmed at Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

5. The Imitation Game – filmed at King’s Cross station.

6. Les Misérables – filmed at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

7. Shaun of the Dead – filmed at Weston Park Grocery.

8. Sherlock Holmes – filmed at Brompton Cemetery.

9. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – filmed at Regent Street.

10. Thor: The Dark World – filmed on the Jubilee line.

We’re delighted to be part of a new skills programme in the West of England to support women to find jobs in the digital sector.

The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) has secured £238,000 funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) for the new Women into Digital Jobs, Education and Training (WIDJET) programme.  As part of WIDJET, Knowle West Media Centre will be running a range of training programmes in Spring 2019.

Web design course: From Her…Digital

Our creative agency Eight will run a short course in web design and development between May and July 2019: From Her…Digital will be open to women aged 18+ who are new to the digital industry.

The programme follows previous ‘From Her…’ programmes at KWMC which have supported women to increase their skills and confidence in a range of digital media disciplines including music production, filmmaking and photography.

Over 10 weeks, From Her…Digital will provide participants with a solid grounding in tools, techniques and software for web design, development and digital media production.

Digital manufacturing programme: Making It

KWMC: The Factory‘s  Making It programme will provide an introduction to the tools, techniques and careers associated with digital manufacturing. Through practical sessions, participants will learn a range of skills including how to use digital design software and follow a design process, operate machinery including laser cutters and 3D printers, and design for materials such as wood, fabric, acrylic and card.

Making It will run from May to July 2019 and will include training sessions in 2D and 3D design, one-to-one mentoring, and supported sessions where participants can experiment, prototype and test ideas for their own project.  They will also have the chance to present what they’ve made to potential industry employers at a showcase event, and access specialist masterclasses in topics ranging from Wearable Technology to Virtual Reality.

The programme will be open to women aged 16+ and residents of South Bristol.

About WIDJET

As well as KWMC’s training opportunities, Bath College, digital training businesses Mayden Academy and Boomsatsuma and the Dot Project will all be involved in delivering activities and training in Spring and Summer 2019.

WIDJET will work with women across the region, providing digital skills and training from entry-level taster sessions through to high-level industry specified courses. Participants can take part in a range of skills courses, training or seminars designed directly with business needs in mind, with the aim of them securing jobs in digital roles.

Minister for Digital, Margot James said: “I am thrilled to announce that the West of England Combined Authority was one of our Digital Skills Innovation Fund winners. Its fantastic work with Bath College, Mayden Academy, Boomsatsuma, Knowle West Media Centre and the Dot Project will change lives.

“Women are underrepresented in tech roles and this funding aims to help develop a more gender diverse workforce because it is not only the right thing to do but also makes business sense.”

West of England Mayor, Tim Bowles, said: “This is fantastic news and supports one of my key ambitions of improving job opportunities across the region. I want to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or personal circumstances, can access support to develop workplace skills so that they can fulfil their potential. Digital and tech is an important part of the West of England’s economy, and businesses have a particular need for skilled employees now, and this demand is expected to grow in future.

“Women are currently under-represented in digital roles and this new project will seek to tackle this by engaging with a wide group of women in communities, with the aim of moving us towards more representative and inclusive employment in digital roles across the region. This could include roles in virtual reality, VFX design or software development.”

St Patrick's Day at The Full Moon

 

This Saturday, March 16th, head to the Full Moon on Stokes Croft for what promises to be an exciting St Patrick’s Day celebration, hosted by Jameson Irish Whiskey.

From 12pm to 2am on Sunday, you’ll be able to enjoy a variety of street food, challenge friends to your favourite retro games and cheer on the team of your choice during the Six Nations’ super Saturday while enjoying a range of Jameson drinks. And entry’s free till 9pm, too. Here’s what you can expect…

The drinks…

Reckon you can be one of the first 500 through the door? If so, you’ll get a Jameson, ginger ale and lime on the house – one of a range of mixed drinks that the whiskey brand will be creating for the occasion.

The food…

Although it’s St Patrick’s Day, it’s not all about the drink…refuel with pizzas from Pepenero, curry from Wok-King on the Moon, or tacos drizzled with Jameson sauce at Taco Station.

The games…

When it comes to gaming, the St Patrick’s Day celebrations at the Full Moon will be seriously retro. Challenge friends (or strangers) on a retro PS1 with 20 built-in games, show off your table football skills, or have a go on the claw machine, where you’ll have a chance to win Jameson merchandise.

The viewing…

All of the day’s Six Nations games will be shown on the big screen, keeping rugby fans entertained.

The cut…

Available on a first come, first served basis, there’ll be a Jacob’s Gentlemen’s Barber pop-up to offer free haircuts on the day!

The music…

In the evening, DJ Little Bo Selecta will be keeping revellers going till the early hours…

 

Entry to the Full Moon’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations is free until 9pm. Find out more on the Jameson website!

BRISTOL ARTIST CREATES ‘SHREDDED GRAFFITI ART’

Long standing and highly respected Bristol graffiti artist, Soker, known for his flamboyant and detailed ‘Wild Style’ lettering has created a concept artwork in the heart of Stokes Croft.

Shredded!

For the first time ever, as far as we know, he has created a piece of graffiti art that has been shredded!
Soker who was once in the same graffiti crew as Banksy in the early 1990’s, decided to embark upon this concept because of how close his artwork would be to Banksy’s Mild Mild West, and was influenced by Banksy’s stunt at the London auction house in late 2018, when the Girl with the Heart Shaped balloon was shredded shortly after being sold for more than £1 million. By all accounts this doubled the value of this piece of Banksy art.

It’s always time for gin!

It’s been eighteen months since Big Ben fell silent, and we’ve still not fully dealt with it. London just isn’t the same without those hourly chimes, reminding you that you’re late for something. Clearly, Be At One and Hendrick’s Gin feel the same way, because they’ve launched a little offer that’ll have you clock-watching all day long.

Hendricks

Yep, everyone’s favourite time of day – Gin O’Clock – is now even better, thanks to #GinChime. A wonderful hour when the clock strikes gin (aka between 8-9pm), it lets you wander into any Be At One, mosey up to the bar, and pick up a £5 cocktail, simply by quoting ‘Gin Chime’ to the bar staff.

Hendricks

Your reward for this punctual trip to the bar is either the ‘Bit Of Me’ – a sinfully sweet concoction of Hendrick’s, rhubarb, strawberry, and soda – or the quintessential ‘English Fizz’.

Hendricks

Mixing Hendrick’s with elderflower liqueur, mint, cucumber, lemon, and soda, it’s as English as Big Ben and (until works are completed in 2021, at least), a lot more useful to you!

The Gin Chime offer is running until April 8th, so you’ve got time to catch a cocktail. Although without Big Ben to help you out, you’d better remember to bring a watch!
