I am working on a new project for a film competition. The film needs to be about something you love so I chose to do it on yoga. I have to actually be in the film so my friend Theo filmed myself and my yoga teacher friend Anna doing some asanas. The idea is to draw on the footage to show the 'hidden' side of the asanas (what is happening inside your body and mind) which is often disregarded and yoga is seen as a sport.
Shooting in a studio and directing people proved to be quite tricky and I found myself a bit unorganised so next time I will make sure I am prepared!

Every Thursday at college I have this class called Rhythmanalysis. For our current project we had to go to the Tate Modern and record people and sounds and then create some kind of video, animation or sound piece with the material we recorded which explores rhythms.
I recorded some performers singing in the turbine hall at the museum and I am working on this video based on their singing. I am masking out shapes from the footage I got in After Effects and then synchronizing the shapes with the music. It is a bit like a screensaver like my classmate Zuzanna said to describe this kind of projects. We have a crit tomorrow so I am looking forward to getting some feedback from the tutors.
I guess you could call the visuals in raves Rhythmanalysis? This clip on Infected Mushroom's website makes me feel strangely overwhelmed and excited.

Getsomeheadspace.com is a website encouraging people to start and maintain practising meditation. It has beautiful graphics and is especially designed for people with busy lifestyles. I am particularly interested in the fact that they made meditation (which, is something people often consider very 'deep' and impossible to understand) fun and easily accesible. Headspace had pretty amazing reviews from The New York Times as well as The Guardian and a lot of other major publications.
