sporadicallly asked: hi shirley, i just watched your recent video, will you be releasing Thomas and Lola soon? :) best wishes xx
Hi! Most probably within a few months - just depending on the load of a bunch of other projects that might have to take precedence. I’ll def. keep you updated though. Also, how did you find my showreel video if you don’t mind me asking? Best wishes and big hugs back xx

The night before I turned nineteen, I burnt my tongue drinking a hot cup of coffee.
I roamed around the Rocks with my best friend, ate pies using wooden sporks and listened to street Jazz musicians. Fell dangerously in and out of love with colourful toy horses at the night markets, and watched my favourite light projections on the MCA three times straight.
The day I turned nineteen, I listened to Matt Corby’s resolution - and forgot where I was for a minute or two.
I had pasta for dinner and finished off the rest of Vivid. My birthday cake this year was a Banoffee tart. I got gifted lavenders and a trip to my now favourite place - The Grounds of Alexandria - for breakfast, by my favourite person.
In the next few weeks I have three meetings, two photoshoots and two music video shoots. No one really knows or believes this, but I have wanted this since I was ten and I’m so excited now to finally be getting somewhere. The only constant that has seemed to follow me through all this is adversity though - and as unfortunate as that is I’ve finally learnt how to embrace that and make it a friend and not an enemy. The less people expect of me, the more I can impress them.
For now though, I’m just going to enjoy the memories of yesteryear. Here’s to creeping another year closer to where we want to be x
5:30pm -5:30am // Birth of a show reel
I compiled all the favourite footage I’ve shot in 2012-13, stretching from footage I shot when I was 17 to stuff I’ve shot a week shy of 19.

Currently putting together an updated show reel and its crazy to see how much I’ve evolved within the past year. I’ve lined up so many new and exciting things for the next few months.
It feels so surreal.

How to Prepare Nostalgia, mixed media animation, May-June 2013
DISCLAIMER: I recommend watching it on vimeo, because the quality on tumblr is about as great as a goat’s ass.
An instructional video on how to prepare nostalgia; a video for those looking to remember things they didn’t know they knew about themselves. This was what I spent 13 weeks devising and producing for a uni assignment to fulfil the brief of creating an instructional cooking video. It’s a hybrid between stop motion clay mation and hand drawn animation, with everything produced by my two bare hands - down to the tee.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Untitled uni project, May 2013
Amy was meant to wear a blue wig and chain smoke cigarettes.
It rained again.
Here’s a few snaps from a short film my friend Nick wrote, which we are now filming for our assignment. We have two shooting days to go involving goldfish, boom boxes, gameboys, online matchmaker services and undoubtedly more rain. I really enjoy doing things like this - so much that I even made a gif.

How to Prepare Nostalgia, stop-motion animation, 2013
I’ve been in my impromptu animation studio (aka my garage, hoodlyf) all day working on this. It took me three hours to craft everything out of clay. I’ve taken 1298 photos and am now halfway through the animation and I’m just really happy. It’s been a while, but it’s a really nice feeling. I’m really happy and I hope you’re happy too.
Mixed media, May 2013
Will forever be one of my favourite lines from a song
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don’t care if you really care
As long, as you don’t go
