For the past two months, I’ve been working on this music video, called “Pretend“…  (And it’s finally on vimeo!!!)  The first month was all pre-production and shooting and the second month was all editing.  Although this project was very intense, I really enjoyed working on it.  Shooting was so much fun…  we went to a conservation area and there was hardly anyone there, so we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves which was nice.  It was also fun setting a fort up on my bed.  I really wanted to keep it up, but the nails and duct tape kept falling out of the ceiling.

The song “Pretend” is by a Canadian band Lights.  I love the lyrics to the song.  I think they’re sad, but in a nostalgic kind of way.  My intent was to make the music video sad, nostalgic, magical, whimsical, mysterious, enchanted, and depressing, but hopeful.  I really miss being a kid and all the silly shennanigans that go along with that, and when I think about it, it gives me a bitter-sweet feeling.  And that’s what I was going for.  Please let me know what you think!!!!

I fell into a sewer…

March 9, 2010

I fell into a sewer todayI’ve had this idea for a photo in my head for about a week now, and I finally went and executed it last weekend.  I am in the process of looking for a DSLR, but for right now, all I have is a borrowed point and shoot.  😦

Anyways, I’m happy with how this photo turned out.  That being said, I think it could be a lot better.  I think the background is a little distracting.  Also, the hand is kind of hard to see at first glance.  I want to re-shoot the idea either at night with streetlights as lighting, or on a rainy day.  That would give it a more creepy feel, which I think would look sweet.  Maybe I’ll make some fake blood, too.  Of course, this all requires the cooperation of my boyfriend, so he can keep an eye out for cars, while I’m laying in the middle of the street.

I recommend viewing larger on my flickr.

Deviant Art

So almost a year ago, I got a deviant art account, and have been uploading some of my drawings and (more recently) some of my digital pieces.  I just added some of my photography, too.  It’s kind of a hodgepodge of everything.  Check it out and let me know what you think!!  All feedback is welcome 🙂
