:This is the first of my videos of my vlogvent series. I go on an adventure out of London with Samantha Baines very early on a Friday morning to go to Warrington. We head to Phonak for Sam to be tested for a hearing aid and then after wolfing down some sandwiches we jump on a train back to London Euston. Little do we know but we end up sitting next to two lovely people who work for the charity Pancreatic Cancer Action. Sam and I had filmed a video raising awareness of pancreatic cancer as both of us have known people to die to it, herself closer to home and with world pancreatic cancer awareness day in the middle of November we had made the video... we got chatting and I micro-interviewed Ali Stunt, a pancreatic cancer survivor (one of the 1% for as long as she has) who wants to drive earlier diagnosis. I warmly invite you to check out pancreaticcanceraction.org to find out more and become more familiar with the symptoms, for your self and your loved ones. When we got back to Euston Station after a 'go slow' on our train we realised that the whole station was full of people because some power lines had come down on our bit of train track... we were lucky to get back when we did! I headed off to the Know The Origin Launch Party at their pop-up shop near Old Street in London, it's brimming with some great ideas for Christmas presents of the ethical variety and I, again, warmly commend you pop along before it closes on the 17th!
The links that I mentioned and suggest checking out include:
I'll be keeping a close eye on the comments - do let me know if there is something you'd like me to chat about or if you have a question I'll do my best to answer it in this series of vlogs!
This is a pretty chilled series, I'm not going out of my way to 'find content' to make them crazy fun but rather more of a behind-the-scenes-peak into the life of a busy freelance presenter and filmmaker living in London.
The 'advent reading' I am reflecting on each day comes from Paul David Tripp's book 'Come Let Us Adore Him' being accessed by the PrayerMate app on my iPhone.
If you'd like to say a more personal hello you can say hi on Twitter @rachelmshannon of if you have an idea you'd like to chat to me about email@example.com

For a bit more of a flavour of who I am, I'm a physiological science graduate who has catapulted into the arts. I love things that are beautiful, original and comedic. Sometimes it feels like two halves of myself but I am big on theatre and film as well as loving geeking out about science and tech. A closet poet, ceroc and bouldering enthusiast and I'm a real-live-Christian with a huge heart for YouTube... so much so I co-administrate London Small YouTubers Network, a group of about 800 video creators in the Londonish area, hosting meet-ups, organising networking and business events as well as socials. After catapulting from the sciences I completed the Bloomberg Broadcast Programme, training on Sony EX3s and C300s for live broadcast and I LOVED it. I then completed TV presenter and radio training seperately and find myself freelance-presenting, shooting corporate content with the media group I am part of, owlinspace https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRzk89XfXq5vZIdc-dZVwAg as well as social media video adverts with Vidsy http://vidsy.co/ and weddings with my filmmaker friend Jo - https://www.jorobbings.co.uk/
I love seeing a project from idea-to-end and enjoy working with other creatives to make a final product folks are excited by - if you have a video idea whether you be a company, charity or fellow-tuber then do get in touch if you'd be interested in collaborating. I have a charity rate and I have a streamlined gear set up but am ready to go with a cheeky prime lens, 3 light set up and shotgun mic should you have a good idea you'd like to pitch to me, let's get coffee!
If you'd like to see some more of the YouTubey-fun-video-content that I make around these parts then please do check out this playlist for more of a feel for what I've made of recent:
