Contrary to popular belief, we don't actually attend many industry parties, but this time I decided to hop on the train and make a night of it at the official launch of the new SAE London.
Located in the fashionable Shoreditch, where you can find many other creative businesses as well as a large number of Vietnamese restaurants for some reason, the new college boasts 18,000 square feet and no fewer than 11 state of the art audio studios, a film mixing studio with 'green screen' capabilities, 4 video editing studios and a 76-seater theatre.
I got there before the party got into gear and had a chat with Matthias Postel, manager of SAE London, who showed me around.
Incedentally, I was back in bed by midnight, unlike some of the other party animals...
