Best. Day. Ever!

We kickstarted our weekend at Summer In The City today and picked up more than a few tips on how start our youtube careers. Luckily for us, there were tons of experts on the panels willing to impart their vast knowledge so you can basically consider us a conduit of all things summer in the city. 

Other than panels there were about a million things to see and do. Here's everything we learned, saw, and did.  

Are you a film student trying to make it in the industry? 

Make stuff, make stuff make stuff!

Think it's easy getting into the music industry via youtube?

Trying to balance music and youtube is very very difficult.


Bethan, Emma Blackery and other music industry professionals sat on a panel about making big in music on Youtube. The gist? Be creative, be passionate, and be proud of your work! 


Fancy getting your nails done? 


There's so much to do at #sitc2015, including getting #MinnieStyleUK manicures.

Think you're going to make it huge on youtube by doing independent filmmaking? Probably not.

But, if filmmaking is a passion of yours and you've got patience, drive, and are wiling to find the right right resources, YouTube can be an amazing springboard. 

One of our favourites, Hazel Haze was on a panel where we learned how to get truly creative outside the vloggosphere.
