A Soliloquy

As some may know, I am a professional television and film artist. For my last project within my final year, I made a film based on my own imagination, centred around the concept of immortality. I created the characters, the costume, the way I wanted the set, the make-up and the soliloquy needed for the main character. I worked hard with a talented director and producer and the film crew was amazing. I was and still am happy with what I achieved; but as every artist says, there is much I would change now if I had a chance to re-do the film. I thought I'd share with you all, the soliloquy, which actually became extended within the script, but here is where it all started from.

Forbidden Soliloquy

This is Dr. Christopher Matthews, reporting day 36400, 
The nights continue to sink in deeper,
My condition worsens.
Increasing disfigurements, as punishment for my past pride I believe;
For I now recognise the selfishness of my past ways,
I see now that Immortality is a fate worse than death.
My face, forever changed,
Those I once knew of are now long dead.
This century resembles nothing of my time, humans are vain and beauty has lost its purity, 
If I was unwanted then, an abomination is what I must be now.
Time cannot stop me,
The wind does not move me,
Food does not sustain me,
Heat fails to burn me,
It appears the serum has made me invincible to everything but the demons in my mind,
Taunting shadows, yes….
Shadows appear during the night……

The Forgotten Barcelona Getaway!

Okay may I first say, please don't judge me by the quality of these images. I obviously forgot how to use my dslr at that time in life. My family and I went on a quick 3 day getaway to Barcelona, Spain last year and I fell in love with it. It honestly made me feel so comfortable and reminded me of my time in Amsterdam. It was like another home. We stayed near the Sagrada Famillia, literally our apartment was a 5 minute walk away from this unfinished beauty. I do apologise though, I can't remember the names of the places we visited, though I hope you can still enjoy the images I placed here; at least you will leave this blog with a semi feel of this gorgeous city.

Sunday Spot | Considerosity | Greenwich Village

Considerosity sits on the corner of 191 West 4th Street in Greenwich Village, New York. I stumbled upon it by accident whilst walking around the area and I'm so glad that I did. I didn't manage to capture everything in the store as it is quite tiny, and to be honest, felt a little weird snapping away whilst other customers were trying to look around. But trust me, it's a treat inside and I left there with two prints and a Kate Spade purse/pencil case thingy. I loved it.

A Look Into The Burberry Maker's House

A couple of weeks ago I ventured to SoHo to explore Burberry's Makers House while held there new collection of Mens and Womenswear clothing. It also allowed those who visited to see how the maker's go about making the designs come to life. From sculpting the human form, to textile prints and dying, to the inspirations behind the collection and fabric testing. We were able to envision the process from designing to the catwalk, with the development stages on the ground floor with a Cafe and the collection on the upper floor.
