One selfie, two selfie, three selfie more – housekeeping your face!

Whatever we’re doing in life we feel the need to selfie it! We always have, it’s just Van Gough and Rembrandt took months to selfie themselves.  I do love a bit of a selfie moment and when that Tamarin monkey jumped out of its zoo enclosure onto my head, I did think, ‘yeh let’s selfie this’….

Virgin Money London Marathon – the day after!

I was pulled out of a teeny, tiny ballot of just 1000 names for the Virgin London Marathon this year.  And here I am the day after, truly thankful that someone pulled me out of a hat and plonked me into the greatest race on earth. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not remotely sprightly at…

Too camera shy shy – hush hush, eye to eye!

Shy people withdraw; the confident ones go wild!  What am I talking about? The moment I turn the camera on – that’s what I’m talking about.  But you may be surprised to hear that that simply isn’t the Oojamaflick case.  If a complete random came up to you in the street and asked to film…

You are wearing your pants on the outside of your clothes but that’s OK by me!

If you wear your pants over your trousers you’re either inebriated, eccentric or super!  Thankfully no one is intoxicated when I’m filming (so far – so good), but there are plenty of little superheroes donning bloomers and capes.  When I’m filming Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman – a showbiz adage that we ‘all’ know springs to…

I always like to read the credits and see what I’m dealing with after a dramatic on-screen experience has wowed me…

Pink Thursday for Aleppo!

On the news last night a reporter interviewed the children of Aleppo. They were barely surviving amidst a backdrop of death, dirt and degradation. Children, not much older than my own, recalled horrific stories that will live in their, no longer innocent, little heads forever! It was beyond heart-breaking and heart-wrenching. It feels right to…

Spread a little teddy love clinton/trump…

On the Eve of the US election it felt right to talk politics.  Normally Oojamaflick.com is a politic-free zone, but momentarily…it’s not!!  My thoughts stem from a news feed I read on 12 year old Campbell from Oz.  He decided one day, quite out of the blue, that he wanted to make teddies for sick…

Calorific Films!

I love watching films.  I love talking about films…while I’m watching films!  I love reading about a film after I’ve watched a film!  I’m on a Netflix, Prime, Sky diet and I’ll take any and every documentary going for afters!  But my sweetest treat is filming itself… So while I take on all those film…
