Wow, it's almost a year since I last posted here. And quite a bit has happened.
Since we last 'spoke' I have completed an MLitt in Visual Culture (and made two very good films if I say so myself) and, as of today, undertaking a PhD in Visual Culture. It's a practical~based study so I'll be making a documentary as part of my studies. Like last year, I'm also a part of the teaching team in the Film Studies department at the University of Aberdeen.
I notice that SoTV still gets a couple of thousand hits a week meaning that there are still some weirdos out there coming here. If you're eager to keep up with my "opinions", I am now reviewing forLast Broadcast and still contributing to Den of Geek. Of course, you can follow my Doctor Who~based news and reviews over at Blogtor Who.
I predict the next post will be in approximately three years when, hopefully, I'll have a new title. Until then, enjoy the very first "dramatic" film I was involved in. Before you watch, however, please note that this was the first time I had used a video camera, first time I directed, first time I had written a screenplay (such that it is), and the first time I had edited. You get the idea.
Sorry luv, don't think The Joker is in the next Batman film...
Just not here, sadly. As an update to why there has been little-to-no action here at SoTV, I'll do some explaining. At the moment I'm 'teaching' at Uni (well, I'm 'assisting' anyway), learning at Uni, working at a cinema (the first all~digital one in Scotland fact~fans!) and making a film - busy, busy. And so SoTV has taken a hit. I'm still offering my opinions on stuff so I've compiled a list of recent reviews for Den of Geek here:
I've been lucky enough to receive preview discs for SJA which I dearly hope will apply to the upcoming Doctor Who specials but I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Elsewhere on TV, Curb Your Enthusiasm has returned in some style with Jerry Seinfeld helping out. Halfway through the season and all is more than well. Similarly Peep Show has come and gone but was groin~grabbingly funny, refreshing considering how 'old' it is (in UK sitcom terms).
Christ, Barbara Windsor has let herself go...
So, in essence, dunno when I'll be back. There'll be reviews over at Den of Geek and Blogtor Who but things will remain purty quiet here until Christmas where I'll round up the year and perhaps put this flippin' blog out of its misery.
Wow, remember the days when I used to be on the radio?
The big screen version of the TAKE THAT musical takes shape...
Well, they're back and this time it's personal. I'll be presenting The Cameron K McEwan Show on ABERDEEN STUDENT RADIO this Monday (October 5th) from 10 'til 11am. Looks like it'll be a regular thang and you can tune in HERE. Remember, you can also catch up on some old shows HERE whilst you can download them from iTunesHERE. Use the subscribe button for minimal future effort!
"Been on holiday recently?"
In other news, life has taken over as I'm now about to start my fourth film and I'm also teaching at the University so my time is a bit too tight for little old SoTV. Apologies if you've had to look elsewhere for unflattering pics of Lily Allen and Lady JarJar. Lastly, you can read some reviews I've done for Den Of Geek here:
