Book- Central Park Five

May 18, 2018

Re reading material post of earlier: Read Young Henry. The ending skipped forward a lot I felt, not such a well-balanced book for me. Difficult I guess to not cover all the stuff we already know but still felt the last 20-50 pages not so good.

The ‘Sleepwalking into WW1’ book was almost the opposite. The level of detail was nearly overwhelming. The set was really close so felt like a wade through but enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Now reading the book below.

Not sure if I’ve seen the Ken Burns Doco or just feel that I’ve seen it and this case was referenced a lot during the Presidential primaries and since.

I was in New York in 1990-91 for 3 months so this, the Howard Beach racial incident and some of the others mentioned at the start of the book were still super present in the city at the time.

Aarhus, Denmark

Just back from a visit to Aarhus, Denmark. Went to check out this module at this uni to see the fit with the BA Filmmaking at NTU.
See most recent showreels for the work produced from this module here and here.

Never been to Scandinavia before and really enjoyed. Shown around by an old friend and really liked the vibe of Denmark’s second largest city.

The dock area where the film city (film byen) is located was buzzy with lots of media companies and studio spaces as part of this development.

Went to a bar where tennis super pro caroline wozniacki frequents/frequented and as I say, really enjoyed it and feel it will be a good fit for the students.
