It’s not everyday you get to meet a real life astronaut, but this week we had the great honour of meeting both Tim Peake and Tim Kopra as they rounded up their Principia UK post-flight tour. On Wednesday 19th October they flew straight in from Belfast (the previous days’ location for the tour) to the Science Museum in London to wow over 400 school children in a Live Q&A session about their time on the International Space Station (ISS).

For all those inventor and engineering lovers out there, we recently covered another fascinating exhibition launch of Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius at London’s Science Museum.
“Internationally-acclaimed, must see exhibition of 2016!” it is a brilliant insight into the mind of a Genius. It’s your chance to investigate both the facts and the misconceptions that surround this great genius of the Renaissance: Was he the period’s only designer of machines? Did all of his designs get fully constructed?
For all the space lovers out there, we recently covered the launch of Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age at London’s Science Museum.
A truly fascinating exhibition it takes you on a journey to discover the dramatic story of how Russia turned the dream of space travel into a reality and became the first nation to explore space in this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.
This time last week we were on a farm in Essex filming for skincare company ELEMIS.
Commissioned to film some of the key ingredients they use in their products, we were focusing on the Starflower, Camelina and Echium flowers.
All grown in the UK they are harvested and pressed for their oils:
Starflower oil – richest natural source of gamma linolenic acid which promotes good skin health by helping to maintain skin metabolism.
Camelina oil – rich in the Essential Fatty Acid Omega-3 fatty which helps protect and nourish skin.
Echium oil – rich in all three Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3, 6 & 9 meaning it has exceptional skin nourishing and calming properties.
Overall it was a great day filming, even if we did have to get up close and personal with the honeybees at work..!

Artegée: A new interactive platform launching next month which will allow you to seamlessly view and discover the work of carefully selected artists and designers online.
Their mission: To create the first truly social selling platform for the world’s most talented independent artists and designers, revolutionising the way the arts are sold and supported online.
Ategée don’t believe the conventional ‘buy now’ features are a good fit for the arts; so with their unique ‘Speak to the Arts” feature, they give an invaluable opportunity to learn and share in their inspirations and ultimately build long-term relationships. You will be able to chat direct, negotiate, and make offers on their work!
Last week we had one day to film a 90 second video showing how users can interact with Artegée. Here are a few photos from behind the scenes. Final video coming soon.
