One giant leap

by John

Forty years ago today my parents sat me down in front of our old black and white television set. The whole family gathered round and on it we watched a man walk on the moon. It’s a romantic image but if the truth be told I don’t remember any of it. I was barely one year old, but I’m forever grateful to my parents that they thought it mattered. I can at least say I was there.

Moon movie

Skip forward four decades and I’m about to attend a screening of Duncan Jones new movie, Moon. It turns out that Duncan used to work at BMB (my new agency) and a couple of the partners here are space nuts, and had invested in the film. Duncan will be coming in to screen the trailer, give a quick talk and then we’re off across the road to see the film.

I know things have been quiet on the post front these last few weeks but I’ve been busy getting up to speed with the new job. I was lucky enough to have two offers on the table and when it came time to choose I had to weigh up the usual stuff: the job, the commute, the salary, and the size of the company. But it was one other factor that really swung it for me – one of our clients is Virgin Galactic. No contest.
