HMTV Loves Ugli!

HMTV Loves Ugli!

Hot Minute Magazine brought a slice of glam to the Ugli Campus last Friday as they were on location to film the Christmas edition of their online entertainment show, HMTV.

Hot Minute is the capital's freshest online magazine, showcasing all the hottest spots of culture, counter culture creation, collaboration and events that London has to offer. Since winning Brand Amplifier - the non-profit branding masterclass programme for female entrepreneurs to turn their startup dreams into business reality - Hot Minute's founder Lesley Brewster has honed her vision to develop and adapt a finely crafted media outlet that caters to the urban professional.

With support from The Brand Amplifier project, whose aim is to help women from the borough of Lambeth get started in business, entrepreneur Lesley epitomises the hunger and the vision that's helped to make her business a success. Lesley's Hot Minute Magazine was the Silver award winner in Brand Amplifier 2012, winning judges over with her avant-garde vision about how media is consumed by urban Londoners.

Things kicked off up on the Ugli roof with presenters Deanne and Darren glowing in the glorious November sunshine. Filming moved into the Room To Think and then finally onto The Big Room, where you may have been (un)lucky enough to hear the first and probably the last outing for the Ugli Christmas Choir. Yes, as always, Ugli jumped at the chance to get involved and although we won't be winning any awards for our high notes, it was great to get involved with the HMTV crew and bring a little bit of Christmas cheer to The Big Room. Big thanks to Lisa from Eight in the Middle, Octavia from Blueprint Artist, Andy from The Ugli Kitchen and also to Aleks for being a good sport and dressing up as Santa. It may not be the last time we ask you ;)
