The film I have been making for the last year, Vanity Project, is now complete. I will be uploading it onto youtube on 8th September, 2017.

Vanity Project is made

I still have a lot of work to do to finish the project as I’d like it, and also to prepare for a planned live performance of the whole work in October. However, the film of Vanity Project is made and will be available via Youtube and this website in early September 2017.

As a small teaser, I’m adding a further 13 stills to the gallery. You can see the whole gallery on the Vanity Project page.

With these stills, I tried to do something different. Every shot of Vanity Project fades into the next. Here are stills taken from within the transitions. They’re a little bit psychedelic, dude.

Here is a video of a track from Vanity Project, called Pentecost.

So this is living;
all snot and sacrament,
clocks with blank faces,
I’m utterly floored.
I’d dry your feet with my hair
but, ‘you know’, friction burns.
With every head bowed, every eye closed,
it’s Pentecost.

So this is breathing;
tongues of the angels,
the tears of my fathers
bed down on my cheeks.
‘Is that oil on your hands?’
No, I’m just a sweaty man
with an earthquake in my heart
at Pentecost.

As a young man, I had vision.
As an old man, let me dream.
So this is falling;
it’s not the first time.
Oh God, when you smile.
Oh God, when you smile.
Sing your evening perfume songs,
scratch our names upon a wall.
Rise up and walk
to Pentecost.
