Sheer Isolation – with Jaime Bullock (Magic Torch) (05/12/21)

This week’s guest on Sheer Isolation has dedicated her life to creating music videos for local artists, documenting art projects, helping Swindon’s school-leavers on their first steps towards a career in media, as well as finding time to work on her own artwork, it’s the founder of Magic Torch Productions, Jaime Bullock. We talk to her about how having such a diverse range of skills means she gets to work with people from all walks of life, whether being commissioned to produce a documentary, or creating a Swindon Spiderman using nothing more than an old friend and some body paint. She also works at the Swindon’s Platform Project which gives advice to youngsters about choosing the right career path, and helping them to follow their passions in life.

For our music selection, Jaime picks a tune from the 80s as a tribute to friend, Levi Saunders, a musician who recently passed away. We also play a post-classical piano piece from Larkhall, who is performing in Trowbridge this week. In news, we note how there are no requirements to wear masks in crowded venues or nightclubs, even though this rule has just been re-enforced for shops and public transport in England.
