Are you a Virgin?

Hello again, its been a while, as usual. But thats no bad thing. 

Firstly since my last post, almost 6 months ago now, I have found a lovely collaborator for a new film (this gal: Claire)! All very exciting stuff, it is still in its writing stages as we speak, but over the next year or so we intend it to complete it.

In the mean time, I am also working on another project, which coincidentally, I am looking for more volunteers for. But this time I am calling all virgins, don't worry it is nothing scary, but I can't tell you the entire plan until your in, because you know, my idea aint copy-righted, and the internet is a big place! SO please comment if you are interested, I would be very grateful, and you will be being a part of a great thing.

To conclude I have some long over due snaps of my summer, a contrast of sunny Spain and not so sunny, but just as beautiful Scotland...

Hope you like.

p l a n t

As usual, it has been a while. I have just been living, you know how it is. 

I have completed my art foundation course since I last posted; the photo above is my film poster for the film that I made for the final project. You can watch this here... P L A N T 

The film is for sure my best so far, which I suppose is lucky because it would be pretty demoralising if I was getting worse! I got a distinction for it (yay) so that was nice.

Anyway in other news I would now like to consider myself a true aspiring film director. So consequently this blog will become more and more related to film, I would assume. Which is awesome fun so please stick around!

I am very much in holiday mode now and so am beginning summer projects. This entails the creation of another film, which probably, I need to write. So if anyone has any ideas for a story line I would so so SOOOO appreciate it if you would let me know. Also on this point I AM IN SEARCH FOR COLLABORATORS, maybe musicians who need a music video, or writers, or fashion designers, etc please comment below, or alternatively email me at: director@sophmay.com

Video Blog

Again, I am sorry about the appalling infrequency of my posts, but I think its a problem that most bloggers seem to have. So I feel no harm done! (hopefully)

So I am trying something new. I have decided to make a video blog on youtube. This is because my film making life/ career (eventually we hope) is becoming my actual life and so I am going to use my video blog to actively record the progress I go through to make my films, because its fun, and probably reasonably interesting (I hope). I mean you don't really notice HOW MUCH work goes into making even a 5 minuet short film until you make one! But don't get me wrong it is like the funnest most rewarding thing ever.

Basically I write, storyboard, design, film, even sometimes have brief acting moments, in my films. So naturally my video blog will be covering all of these things and so much more. I think it will be fun!

So head over to Seriously Wak Films and subscribe! (Because I would feel kind of stupid if I was talking to no one!)

Above is a photo of Daisy on set of my next movie, which will be released onto the internet very very soon! 

Ps I will still be blogging about as frequently as I do now on here so don't fret.

Hope you like.

A Little Bit More.

Suddenly, but not suddenly at all the time left where I am now, is not so long. Today its raining, but on average the weather is picking up. I can feel my urge for adventure growing stronger by the day. We have visited many places, explored all the nooks and crannies of this small cornish town. The cliffs and bays and trees have been our retreat but at this point they have become too familiar. 
Before we move on, begin the search further a field, I appreciate what we had/ have, it is and will be held for ever in these photos...

Hope you like.

Birthday Extravaganza

So I may be wrong in thinking this but, now that I am 19 I think that I have officially exited childhood. This is actually quite sad; so far all I have ever known is my childhood, because (obviously) it is all I have ever lived! Now I am in this strange void of emptiness, which I suppose is just space which will be filled by the rest of my life. Its just strange because it is sort of like starting again, re-introducing yourself to the world, but this time it is more serious, and as each year passes I feel there will be less and less room for mistakes and discovery! A terrifying prospect. 

So with this in mind, I started my new liberated 19 year old life with a good ol' trip out on the salty sea.

We used this (fake) go pro that I got for christmas all day and I turned it into a movie, so do watch...

Hope you like.

Take 15.

I have this friend called Cecilia, she's like super cool, you know, she's like THE friend. Well I was with Cecilia on New Years Eve. We sat on the hay bails by the fire, midnight approaching fast. We discussed the coming year, and what we were going to achieve in it. It was such a powerful conversation, in the moment of it all I felt, given the chance I could do absolutely anything. We both felt that. We decided that this is our year, 2015, twenty fifteen, this is when it all happens for us. And I am so excited. 

Below are some photos taken just after the conversation I mentioned perviously, the first photos of the year...

Ces and I dancing with the fire.

And what started as embers became Mount Vesuvius. 

But the yurt continued to sit comfortably in the background.

And both man and fire breathed smoke into the night.

In the end all they could do was to watch form afar.

Happy New Year to each and everyone of you. Let it be great for you too. Please. 

Hope you like.
