TVFutures : Bouncing Back
Jane Lawrance When I arrived at the University of Portsmouth three years ago, I would never have thought in my wildest dreams I would end up where I am now. My time at university has been eye opening, informative and fun. Of all the lessons I have learned in the past three years, resilience is the one that has taught me the most.

Creating a plan for your video business
Den Lennie Lets not beat about the bush here. If you have set up a business then the number one priority should be to make money. If you are not seriously focussed on profit then you need to take a long hard look at yourself and ask why did you decide to set up a business at all? If you only want to shoot for art or fun then you are an amateur - it's that simple.

Learning from the master
N/A The computer for the rest of us was one of the first of Steve Jobs utterances that caught the public imagination. He was the same age as me, so I can be forgiven for brooding on his death. But that vision of a computer which took all the boring stuff away and just did what we wanted has changed all of our worlds.
