About Rebecca

All about the human/hair behind Almost Ginger…

I don’t really ride a quad when I go back to visit family…

Hello! I’m Rebecca, a recent graduate from just outside of the Lake District in the UK currently working in post-production in Manchester. Being from the Lake District and living in a city really does mean I have the best of both worlds.

I am also the human and hair behind Almost Ginger. I like to watch and write about film and my posts are be enjoyable for cinephiles and casual film-goers alike. I have a degree in in Drama and Screen Studies and work in Digital Marketing, but used to be an Edit Assistant so I like to think I know my stuff. I watched a hec of a lot of films last year and I imagine I will continue to do so every year.

I’m also a part-time Wanderluster. During University, I worked as a camp counsellor in the USA, worked for a month at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, and enjoyed city breaks around Europe with my friends.

Nowadays, I’m still trying to get away whenever I can! I like heading to the best film festivals around Europe and checking out the top film locations. This year I’m busy getting through my UK travel bucket list whilst I save up for my next big adventure. 12 countries down, a LOT more to go!

Almost Ginger was born out of a love of both film and travel and I’m here to show you adventures can be found on the road or on the couch. I’m inspired 24/7 by the wide range of film there is out there. One inspired me out of my introverted shell and of course, their biggest influence on me, inspire me to travel more.

Where to next…

      Hello! Aw thank you so much for looking me up! Yeah, it is a great city, and football is definitely like a religion here! Film is definitely my main passion and I could write and write all day about film, but over the next week I will be changing up the design and including a lot more travel and travel/film mash ups that will hopefully be interesting, it’s been a difficult niche to crack x Also, When Harry Met Sally is a phenomenal film, I don’t think there’s been a better romantic comedy since!
