Jonathan Hirons: Filmmaker and musician
I have always made movies, starting with a borrowed 8mm camera and a few friends making 3min shorts with no budget. The arrival of digital video has transformed my life as I can now produce high quality films with much smaller budgets.
I have worked in community radio as a presenter where I also wrote and produced the annual radio pantomimes.
In my music world, I play guitar and [sometimes] sing. I have been in several bands – most recently with Urban Blues and Blazin’ Blue
In case you’re wondering, the title Buffalo Lounge came from a friend of mine, Robert Gray. We were recording some poetry and the line ‘Is there still tea in the Buffalo Lounge’ came up and it stuck.
