On Monday the 29th of January, I had a great night filming; I am doing a documentary on the late, great Jimmy Reid. I only started filming different bits of footage earlier this month, but the other night I managed to get in to thee Jimmy Reid Memorial lecture, which was chaired by the first minister, Alex Salmond. This was my first time filming a famous face delivering a speech on Jimmy Reid and independence, filming this documentary has help me a lot to feel more comfortable making a documentary rather than a drama. I was hoping to get Alex Salmond to answer a question for my film, but with all his guards, I didn’t think that was going to happen, but I just decided to go for it, grab my chance, and after the speech I managed to get my question to him and he answered it happily. Now I have realised that pushing the right doors open and you may get what you need, overall I was very proud that I went for it and got what I needed.
