The Two Faces Of January - a review

I love the randomness of a press preview; on one side of me was a woman who through the duration of the film ate a three course packed lunch, on the other a small bird-like woman flashed me looks throughout, and clearly decided we would talk afterwards. And talk we did, although she took us off on a Japanese poetry tangent. I had one of those sudden out-of-bodies where I zoned back in and thought 'where am I, who are you and what on earth is The Sailors' Cemetery?'

Anyhow, interesting film - check out my review for Britflicks here!

Scars On Me.

The last month has been largely overtaken with location hunting for the trailer of my feature film - that means hanging out on lots of rooftops mainly, not a bad life. Between that and my penchant for flowers I seem to have spent the whole of last month outside, which makes me very happy indeed. However I did find time to scout the BEST LOCATION EVER for a music video for the very talented Frankie Forman. I say 'found the time', it was more of an impromptu afternoon of nonsense, but the end result was the same.

The location itself, the top floor of the Assembly House in Kentish Town, has always been a personal challenge (to get up there/ live there/ climb it/ whatever) and we discovered a more macabre side to the place; there is a beam in one attic room reached only by a ladder from which a maid allegedly hanged herself, once upon a time. A tad dark. Still, it was a lot of fun assisting with Scars On Me, directed by Eva Pentel, and the song itself resonates with me - in part due to a psychedelic evening in a hairdressers with Frankie's drummer Buddy, but we won't go into that.

Check out the beautiful Frankie Forman and her song Scars On Me, released Monday 5th May!
