• BBC1: 'PYM Series 3' Graphics

Back in the later part of 2009 the company that I currently work for produced the series 'Dealers: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' Series 3 for BBC1. This 30 episode series pitches two antiques experts against each other for a weeks worth of challenges and all the money they raise is given to charity. PYM3 hit the air over this summer. If you missed it you were probably at work or still asleep, as it was broadcast at 10.30 am.

My role during the series was 'Edit Assistant' and I shared the credits with my work colleague over the 30 eps. I'm not quite sure how it works but the series and the production staff made it's way onto IMDB. You can find my particular credits on there, my page is called Thomas Hill (VIII)

I was asked to produce a number of still and animated graphics for the series as part of the pastiches that the directors had shot with the presenters. Here are a few examples:

You can see the animated versions of the graphics in my video show-reel from 2009:


• Alberg & Austin @ Underage Fest

I know I'm probably going to get abuse for getting a little over excited about this, but quite frankly I don't care! University friend and owner of the Alberg & Austin clothing label Caitriona Brown rang me last Sunday to tell me that she was at the Underage Festival 2010 and that she had just handed over a copy of my Bubbles T shirt design to the rapper Professor Green.

I have been a fan of Green's music since 2006 when I discovered him and Example when they were support acts for Plan B at a gig I attended in Cardiff. At the time he was touring with his debut album: "Who Needs Actions When You've Got Words." After the show I asked Green if he had any mixtapes with him and he pointed me in the direction of the merchandise stall and suggested that I bought a CD mixed by Beni G of the Mixologists, which he featured on and he was kind enough to sign it for me afterwards. So as you have probably guessed already I was as excited as a 6 year old on Christmas day for the rest of the afternoon after Caitriona's phone call.
