The release of "Blauweiss" in 2007 was met with critical acclaim, a series of sold out cinema screenings and festival appearances. The 103 minute epic, by far McDine's longest film, is without doubt his most dramatic - thanks in no small part to the fantastic support of the 1. FC Magdeburg team and fans in their incredible emotional roller coaster of a season that so nearly resulted in promotion.

Jamie was also putting his experience for corporate film production to good use, directing promotional films for the German National Tourist Office in Cologne and Bonn in 2007 and Hamburg in 2008. This was followed by four days in Berlin documenting the sensitive and emotional visit of 23 UK Jewery.

In Spring 2008 Jamie moved back to England, after four enjoyable and successful years in Magdeburg, and quickly became very involved in developing and delivering the 14-16 Creative and Media Diploma in a number of Wiltshire Schools.

He discovered a new passion for a different kind of camera, capturing stills - inspired by Jackie, a photographer who Jamie married in 2010! Together they are very successful wedding photographers and videographers and make an excellent team, sharing skills and enthusiasm for capturing the special day of couples in Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset.

Since 2010 Jamie has worked as artist in residence at Matravers School in Westbury and Hardenhuish School in Chippenham, bringing subjects to life with the use of film and animation. He also continues to produce promotional films for the National Trust and a number of community organisations, charities and companies across the region.

A film highlight of 2012 is without doubt the documentary film project of "Operation Nightingale" which Jamie led with Wessex Archaeology, Salisbury Arts Centre and soldiers at a secret anglo-saxon burial camp on Salisbury Plain.

And with the birth of their son Oscar in 2011, Jamie and Jackie are really enjoying family life and capturing so many special moments in their own lives on film and in photos.
