    Mat Roff - Ep#24

    Mat Roff - Ep#24

    We arrange a chat with creative problem solver Mat Roff. Sadly, we had a little issue with our audio on this episode but Mat's audio is great and after all, it is all about our guest and not us.
    Mat helped us in a bit of a deep dive into why fan art can be so important in any artist journey. He told us how everything for him is classed as some sort of collaboration and how that keeps his work fun and interesting for him and his clients. His openness is something we applaud, it's not always about the final product, sometimes the journey is much more important.
    We encourage you to check Mat out on Twitch, he regularly streams his work and his process which is lovely to be part of. We will certainly look at going to the Oxford Doodle Club and we hope to collaborate with him on something in the future.

    Lucy Rogers - Ep#23

    Lucy Rogers - Ep#23

    Professor Lucy Rogers (PhD) is an inventor with a sense of fun. She is a Royal Academy of Engineers visiting Professor of Engineering: Creativity and Communication at Brunel University, London, a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and she is adept at bringing ideas to life, from robot dinosaurs to mini-mannequins and even a "fartometer" for IBM! Chris had the pleasure of meeting Lucy at an improve intensive weekend with The Maydays and just knew we had to get her on the podcast.
    Lucy has turned her hand to a plethora of things in her personal and professional life and virtually all of them have some form of creativity in them. It was really interesting to talk to her about her experience at the intensive weekend and the more recent release of Season 3 of The Design Spark podcast that she does with Bec Hill and Harriet Briane. We touch on the closure of the Guild of Makers, what the community does to have such a presence on Twitter, what environment she needs to help learn, failing in public and much much more.

    Melanie Light - Ep#22

    Melanie Light - Ep#22

    We sat down with Director and all-round awesome human being Melanie Light way back in February before the lockdown was put in place and now we finally bring it to you.
    Melanie not only writes and directs her own films but she is also a huge part of the Women In Horror month putting on amazing horror showcases. If that was not enough and is a huge advocate and voice for female representation in the film industry, especially in the horror scene.
    Her short film The Herd won several awards including Best Horror Short at the London Independent Film Festival (UK) but don't judge Mel by the hard-hitting nature of the film. We talk a lot about her history, work, and the challenges that face not just her as a director but all women in the film industry. We do of course get Mel drawing with us and I love what we come up with.

    Samuel George London - Ep#21

    Samuel George London - Ep#21

    This month we bring you a chat with comic book author and fellow podcaster Samuel George London.
    We met Sam at True Believers (2020) and invested in his Milford Green comic books. It's amazing that Sam had never even written a major fictional story until he wrote Milford Green. He did so with the help of a structure laid out by Dan Harmon called the Story Circle and drawn by ace Finnish artist Mikael Hankonen. Sam talks about his experience with Kickstarter, how he found Mikael, delivering the final part of Milford Green, his love of a Museum in Baisingstoke and his upcoming projects which we are looking forward to.
    On top of that, we make up a wonderful story that we are sure Marvel will be all over if they have any sense.

    Arthole - Ep#20

    Arthole - Ep#20

    Another month is upon us and we are still in lockdown, we hope you are all well.
    This episode was recorded at the beginning of March. Elliot and Kay collectively known as Arthole joined us after a full day at the Bristol art fair Shake. We fed them and plied them with tea to find out more about their own art fair, style, interests, influences and whatnot.
    Of course, we also made them roll some dice and invent something on the spot and they did not let us down. How Kay managed to draw a whole page of a comic in such a short space of time is beyond us.
    Do yourself a favour and go check out their social media to find out when the magazine will be released. Or become part of the elite Arthole Isolation Club and buy yourself a swanky t-shirt. You will be helping to support the magazine and two lovely young artists at the same time.

    Matt Emeny - Ep#19

    Matt Emeny - Ep#19

    Welcome to our April episode where most of the world seems to be in some sort of lockdown (including the UK). We hope that you are well and employing some sort of social distancing.
    We had this interview with Matt Emeny already recorded and obviously, we want to bring it to you so that you can check out his work. Matt makes his own theatre productions, acts and would love to direct his own movies. Chris has been working with Matt for the past few months as part of the theatre training that Matt provides with The Natural Theatre Company on some devised theatre. Matt's work in ranges from fun children's theatre the Father Christmas Workshop (2019) to the more Back Page that explores human trafficking in the West Country.
    Matt talks about the challenges and stereotypes that are associated with Dyslexia. He has certainly found ways to dispel them and make his condition work for him to be a more natural performer.
