I am a recent Film and Popular Culture graduate from St. Mary’s University Twickenham, graduating with a 2:1. During my time there, I wrote and helped film a ten-minute short film, and after graduating went on to do a journalism evening course, which I completed with a B+ grade certificate.

“Assassin’s Creed” is a knife in the back of entertainment

By Neill McNamara January 31, 2017
