I have recently been creating content with 95 Social – a social media agency based in Edinburgh, and my first shoot was an Interesting one. We went down to London Road in Edinburgh to Ginger Twist Studio and made a short video for Jess, who has recently been given the title ‘The Usain Bolt Of Knitting’ after taking part in a competition and knitting a hat in 90 minutes - which is ridiculously fast.
We asked questions about her the small yarn shop she has been running for over 4 years, what it felt like to go viral and have such an epic nickname, as well as her plans for the future. I definitely know where I’m going to get a Christmas Jumper this year! Once we made the video and uploaded it to the client’s page, it got a lot of media attention. The biggest share came from VOGUE. YES, VOGUE.
Okay, so it was Vogue knitting, but they are part of the Vogue Platform and it's still insanely cool. As we speak, the video has had over 55,000 views in just a week and it's still rising.
It has been awesome since that gaining a lot more attention and hearing from a lot more potential clients. Thanks to Jack at 95 Social who gave me the opportunity to work with him, here’s to many more projects in the near and far future!
