Trying to make a Youtube video!

As I have had a few days of lately I decided to have a play around and try to create a YouTube video while I was at Trimley Reservoir on Tuesday.

I have never made a video before but recently I have wanted to try and edit a video as it is something I have never tried to do so had no idea if it was something I would even be able to do. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and really enjoy watching videos where they go to places I have never been before. So I thought I would take some footage to show people what the reservoir was like as on a nice sunny day it it such a peaceful place to go.

I actually really enjoyed the process of making the video and would like to try to make some more in the future. I obviously have a lot of improve on as it was my first attempt but overall I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Here is the video I made from the clips that I managed to get:-

Netflix Recommendation – Bandersnatch

The film I watched over new year was the Black Mirror Bandersnatch film. This film was highly anticipated, and I had been waiting for it to be released. If you don’t know already it was a virtual film where the audience pick how the films ends.

The film follows a young programmer start to question reality when he adapts a mad writer’s fantasy novel into a video game.

I really enjoyed the interactive aspect of the film as it felt like I was more involved with the outcome of the film. However, if you just wanted to chill and watch a film this probably isn’t the one for you as you do have to pick quite a few answers to different questions they ask so you do have to pay attention.

I think is a one-time watch film as I do not feel the need to watch it again as even if you chose the wrong answer you get directed back round to the correct answer or the one they want you to give so no matter what you pick you end up with the same ending there is just different ways to get to the ending.

I would however recommend the film to anyone who was looking for something a bit different to watch. I am a big fan of the whole Black Mirror series so would recommend watching the other episodes I do think they do make you think about issues in society such as social media.

Into the wild – love this film and it’s so inspiring

What would yours be?

Netflix Recommendation – Bird Box

Another Netflix film I have watched recently was Bird Box. I had heard a lot of people talking about this film, so I knew it was something I had to watch to see what it was all about. In the film a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is for sure – if you see it you die. The survivors have to avoid coming a face to face with the entity. As one of a few survivors in the area a woman and her two children embark on a dangerous journey to a place that potentially can offer sanctuary. They have to complete the trip blindfolded.

The film stars Sandra Bullock who I have loved since the days of Miss congeniality.

From the moment I put this film on I was hooked– although the idea of everyone suddenly dying didn’t seen that realistic to me, I had to forget about that and just embrace the film. The film is intense and very gripping, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It may not necessarily be a film I watch again as I think those type of films are ones that you watch once as once you have seen it you don’t need to watch it again. However, that does not mean I enjoyed it any less and I would recommend it to anybody that loves Thriller films.

Netflix Recommendation – YOU

I recently watched the American thriller series YOU on Netflix and thoroughly enjoyed it. The series follows a bookstore manager who’s crush on an aspiring writer becomes sinister when the writer becomes the managers obsession. The manager uses everything from social media and the internet to become close to the aspiring writer and removes any obstacles in his path.

When I first put this series on, I didn’t know what to expect and wasn’t sure if I would like it but as soon as I started the first episode, I had to continue to watch the rest. It did take a bit of getting use to as you are sort of in the book stores managers head, so you see everything through his eyes. But once I had gotten of that aspect, I really enjoyed this series.

This series is gripping and once it has started it’s hard to put down as you want to see what happens in the end. The show does highlight how much information we give away using social media and how easy it would be for somebody to track us down if they wanted to. So, the one good things about this show is that it does make you more aware on social media.

I would highly recommend this show as I really enjoyed it, I am a fan of American thriller films so if you are too this is definitely the series for you.

TV Recommendations – Killing Eve

A couple of months ago I watched a BBC series called Killing Eve, which I believe is still on iPlayer to catch up with if anyone is interested.

Killing Eve stars Sandra oh and Jodie Comer – I mean I was always going to watch it if Sandra oh was in it as she was my favourite character in Grey’s Anatomy.

The series is based on Eve who is a MI5 Security officer who end up hunting down Villanelle a very talented killer. Eve and Villanelle go head to head and become equally as obsessed with each other as Eve is tasked with hunting done the psychopath assassin.

This series gripped me from the moment I started watching it and I cannot wait for the highly anticipated second series which they have been filming.

Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are incredible actors in this series and I recently found out that Jodie is not fluent in any other languages so all the languages she spoke she had to learn as she went along with the filming of the series.

I would highly recommend this series as it is a great programme to watch. Everybody that I have spoken to about it has also enjoyed this programme.

Film Recommendations – Lord of the Rings

I know Lord of the Rings is a trilogy of films that I should have watched years ago but only recently have I given into my boyfriend’s request and actually watched these films with him. As must as I would like to tell him I didn’t like them I couldn’t I had to admit that I actually enjoyed them, and they may now even be some of my favourite films that I have watched.

I am not sure what put me off watching them in the first place, perhaps it was the hype that followed them that made me think they wouldn’t be able to live up to the hype or maybe I just thought I wouldn’t enjoy them. Part of me wishes I had watched them sooner but the majority of me is glad I waited because I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed them as much if I had watched them as soon as they came out.

My boyfriend of course is extremely happy that I liked the films and has now given me the hobbit to watch, which so far, I am not that impressed with. I know a lot of people like the hobbit, but I just cannot not get into it like Lord of the Rings. I am going to perservere we The Hobbit for another couple of days but after that I may have to give up for now and perhaps try again in the future.

The scenery is the Lord of the Rings films is just immense and I know need to go to New Zealand. I have always wanted to go there but now that interest has increased. I almost liked the films that much that I could quite easily watch them again already.

If you haven’t watch them already and are late to the party like my then I would highly recommend watching these films.
