The Big Issue North is a regional edition to the popular weekly publication, The Big Issue. I've been contributing full-page-to-multi-page features to the magazine since early 2017, with work based predominately around film, television and popular culture.
Rupert Grint on Snatch
After I'd quizzed Rupert Grint about his favourite movies for Total Film, there was a little bit of time left over to get his thoughts on visiting Manchester for the first time ever to shoot his new show Snatch.
Julian Barratt on Mindhorn
While his Mighty Boosh partner Noel Fielding was visiting The Great British Bake Off's baking tent, Julian Barratt was making his big screen feature debut with Mindhorn, a smart send up of 80s cop shows and the fickle nature of stardom. I was able to speak to Barratt about creating this larger than life character just before the film's debut.
Artist John Higgins Discusses Working on Judge Dredd / Cover Story
I was offered the chance to speak to iconic Liverpool based artist and comic book writer John Higgins ahead of his hometown exhibition at Victoria Gallery & Museum and as a big fan of Judge Dredd and Watchmen, I jumped at the chance. The finished piece even made it onto the cover of the late April edition of the magazine, making it my first ever cover story.
Alice Lowe Talks Prevenge
For my inaugural feature for The Big Issue North I spoke to actor, writer and Director Alice Lowe about her amazing feature debut Prevenge and its impressive journey to the screen. Alice was really generous with her time and debut film set her up as someone you'll definitely want to see more of. If you haven't seen the film yet, you're missing out.
