We apologize for the inconvenience

If Yak himself asks you if you want to make a short film with him, you would be pretty stupid to say no. So I said yes! And it is such fun, and I am learning so much about filmmaking. We will keep you up to date about this project, and you can ofcourse read all about it over at Yak too (in Dutch).

Here is a first trailer, indulge it. Any feedback is highly appreciated !

Update:
this is the second version of the trailer, it has been updated on few places, also with new pieces of film.

Filmmaking Day 1 : Knackered, the cool way

Storyboard
A part of the storyboard

It was a long, and not the least hot day but it was so cool.

This is a kind of resume of my first day at the London Film Academy. I mostly wrote it because I want to keep track of what we have been doing, and how it has been. It might not be that interesting to you, and it is quite a long story too. Be warned.

Yeah Yeah Yeah – The First Day

Don't Panic

When I signed up for the course, in the beginning of February it seemed so far away. I hadn’t even moved to London there, and the future was somewhat uncertain. It was actually quite a silly thing to do, because lots of things might have happened, and I might never have settled in London. But that’s me, the impulsive girl. And things like that did not happen, and I can’t imagine living in any other city.

Yeah Yeah Yeah – Go Card Girl

The Girl on the postcard
On of my Girl cards is featured on the Go-Cards frontpage. This is actually one of my personal favourites.

So – how cool ! (Apart from the fact that they have misspelled my last name, but what’s in a name anyway.)

You can send her as an e-card, but the picture is a bit small if you ask me.

I have been working on some London Girl cards lately too, some of them might popup here some time.

More about the cards here.

And yes, it’s all about Love, Actually. Love + Rock.

Because I feel like one

Because I accidently stumbled upon this song in my iTunes collection, by pressing “Play random song”. And how lucky, it could have been 3301 other songs.

Because it is a beautiful way to start your Monday.

Because I always thought that Radiohead was for musicnerds only, but it isn’t.

Because it is such a cool title for a song.

Because I feel like one at the moment.

Because I thought you should hear it too.

I wish that they’d swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I’m driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I’d love to see it

Radiohead – Subterranean Homesick Alien

These are the days

Bill Nighy - King of Coolness - in London
“You might as well eat your lunch” the pirate said to me “’cause it is not going to make any difference anyway. If it doesn’t happen today, it will happen some other day.” He would make sure of that, he promised.
I tried to believe him, and I tried to calm down but it was very hard. I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t think, I couldn’t eat.

Gosh it is pathetic how nervous I was. And probably all for nothing.

I bring it to you

My head is somewhat full with joyfull things at the moment, which is good, but that means that the words don’t really want to get out right.

So in stead of giving you some crapilicious writing, I give you the song I have been trapped in for quite a while now. And if you were in London, peeking through my blinds at the late hours of day, you could see me dancing (in the most pathetic way of course) on it way too often lately.

I thought you might like to dance a bit too, so press play and get ready for some UK funkiliciousness:

(They (the funky Brits) are called the Infadels, and I think semtex is the perfect metaphor for a thing that can have as explosive an effect as love)

I’m at my feet now
but boy
I’m still falling at ya

A minor The Girl postcard newsflash

The GirlThe GirlThe Girl

Mainly for readers in Denmark :
I just got confirmed from Go-Card that The Girl cards 1 + 2 haven’t been out in any cafe’s yet !
The Girl has only been enjoying McFlurries (as she adores Icecream) in the MacDonalds restaurants in Denmark until now.

On Thursday (2 days from now) the cards will be printed for Cafe distribution. And they will be distributed to The Cafe’s in the coming 2 months.

Sorry to all of you who have been looking out for The Girl in The Cafe’s ! I didn’t really know that MacD was so far ahead in receiving the cards.

So – have a look the coming weeks, if you want to meet The Girl In The Cafe. I have to say : I still think it’s incredibly cool that The Girl is going to be in the Cafe’s. And I would still like to hear from anyone who spots her in a Go Card stand. A picture of it would be ultimately cool !

The Girl came home

The Girls in the Cafes
The Girls in the Cafes

I admit that it is a bit crowded in my room at the moment, with all The Girls. But how cool to come home from work, and to find The Girl number 3 in my mailbox. This postcard was the very first drawing I made, a sleepless night in January. And so many good things have happened since then.
I redid the card for the postcard version, and this card is definetely one of my personal favorites.

(A BIG thank you to Gocard for sending these postcards all the way to London).

Minor update Oh I forgot to say that I actually sold my flat in Denmark this week. Which makes a very nice connection to the sleepless night in January, as I had just started selling my flat there. It has taken a long time, but nevertheless, things are going as planned. And the girl is home. In London.

Macky Mack


Billy Mack is macky

From the official UK slang dictionary:

1. Mack vt macked;mack.ing or mack.in’
1: to flirt with, make passes at “That fool macked on me!”
2. to make out with – syn get busy, get down, get your groove on

2 Mack (noun)
1. a male adept of sexual attraction – syn hotpepper, pimp, playboy – a mack daddy, a mackier mack
1 b: the newest, most fashionable
2: sexual activity “i need to get my mack on”

It took me exactly 4 weeks (slow I know, I am out of practise, but still) to mack my collegue, the one controlling the company jukebox and therefor controlling what music we get to hear here, as follows:

I get him a cup of English tea, with milk.
He plays me Christmas is all Around by Billy Mack.

Very Macky indeed.

I’m lovin’ it

I'm lovin' it

If you happen to live in Denmark, and you do visit McDonalds somewhere the coming period, you might meet The Girl there. Not that I recommend you to eat there too often, but the 2 first The Girl cards should be available in McDonalds restaurants in Denmark. They will also appear in cafe’s soon.

If anyone spots any of my cards on a go card stand, I would be grateful to hear from you! A picture of it would be even cooler !

The Girl in the Mc Donald’s, I’m lovin’ it …
