In the similar vein to my First Year Video-casts, I decided to create a video production for an American Historical Cinema assessment. Naturally, all the beta-blockers in the world couldn’t get me to enjoy public speaking, and I also find nothing worse than hearing someone describe a visual medium with vague words. Ergo, for this project I researched, edited and recorded my findings on the historiography of Oliver Stone’s JFK. Admittedly, this was recorded in the early hours with a four-pack of Grolsch, but I was generally happy with the outcome. It was subsequently awarded an ‘exceptional first’ (96%) — and my seminar tutor let me shot whiskey as it played – no doubt making 20 minutes of my own voice more bearable.
