To mark World Diabetes Day which is celebrated on 14th November, Frederick Banting's birthday. I thought it would be fitting to make a film about getting my first insulin pump.

Diversity shot to fame through TV talent show Britain's Got Talent. Recently I was able to interview with Ashley Banjo and some of the Diversity dancers who are touring in a big top with a brand new show that pushes the boundaries of the street dance they are known for.
I was lucky enough to be invited to cover the Gromit Unleashed 2 trail, the third Aardman Animations trail in Bristol raising money for the children’s hospital. My reports include a chat with Nicola Masters, Director of The Grand Appeal and Peter Lord, Co-Founder of Aardman animations. The statues raised over £1 Million at auction which is and incredible figure!
I stuck all my reports in to one video for easy watching. If you fancy a look, watch the video!
After a record breaking UK & Ireland tour 'Shrek The Musical' returns to Bristol and I was invited back stage to experience how the actors are turned into Ogres each night before getting on stage. Younger Jamie was a huge fan of Shrek so it was a bit of a surreal moment if i'm honest!
After attending the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta several times I was yet to actually take to the skies. But it seems this year is my lucky year, after some difficult weather for the majority of the event the skies cleared and I was able to fly. An incredible experience and i'm so glad I had a camera to capture it all. It was filmed mostly on an Osmo which was such a perfect camera for such a cramped space.
The new musical adaptation of 'An Officer And A Gentleman' came to town and I was put through my paces by Sgt. Emil Foley (played by Ray Shell). Check out the video to see if I had what it takes to earn my wings...
A company in Bristol claims to be the first in the UK to offer soon-to-be fathers the experience of pregnancy. I was sent to test out the experience with some hilarious results.

This was the first time Diabetes UK got together people aged 16-25 for this sort of event so I decided to take a camera to see how it all went down!
I also wrote a blog post about the experience. Read that here: www.jamielowe.co/f/why-its-good-for-type-1s-to-talk

I consider this programme one of my greatest achievements. For months I and the Made In Bristol team documented the progress of six runners. The whole experience resulted in a 90 minute live OB. No auto-cue, no scripts just a whole load of energy and fantastic stories! Here is an extended highlight reel of the programme. If you wish to see the individual VT's please follow this link to a playlist http://bit.ly/2FYBTel
For 'The Crunch' I was tasked with producing an editorial feature paid for by Bristol Waste. The feature was intended to increase awareness of the publicly owned waste management company and shed light on what happens to the recyclable material residents leave outside their homes once a week. This project was completed in just two days and was shown as a two part feature within The Crunch. Here it is in full.
