 A Bit About Kyle..........

Kyle edits & makes films in his spare time
He has entered competitions and won, he is taking media next year


A film Kyle made for a channel 4 web site. The film was made with the same style as " The Street " one of Kyles favourite programs. All the actors are family and my Father had been very ill with Myloma  Cancer

This film has made it to the finals in London on the 25th October 2011 through a competition ran by Film Nation. Please support Kyle by following the link below and voting for him, press the thumbs up button.

Kyle won at the red carpet awards, his work will be shown across the UK and at the Olympic arena.

Bit About Mike..........

Mike enjoys brewing and drinking real ale. He makes it from scratch standing over a boiling  caldron  for hours on end in his private little retreat (the garage) 

He learnt the 
Art of Brewing from Rob March in 1993

A Bit More About 


If I do have any spare time I love to sketch in charcoal & paint in oils or acrylics.
At the top of my wish list would be a studio, a place to splash paint around and get lost in time.
