Breakfast in Mayfair

London Porches in Kensington, by Mark Wallis on thevibes.me

Elegant London

Waking up in the spring sunshine, stepping onto the balcony of my Nash terrace in one of London’s more exclusive squares, is a moment to savour. Until room service reminds me I have to check out. Set camera to Stun.

Greek Church Bayswater

The architecture of London is arresting, diverse and chaotic. Baroque and Brutalist, side by side. I can’t turn a corner without snapping away. I’m a tourist who stops traffic to get the perfect view, carrying a legal disclaimer for the police (written by the police) in case anyone tries to interfere.

Just a couple of days in the capital, a surprise whistle-stop tour.

It’s so hot on Oxford Street, we buy chilled coconuts and drink the milk through a straw. Luxury in the dust! The sun sets on Soho Square, and we have to make our way back to Manchester. For all the noise and chaos, London is a difficult city to leave.

Walk in the Park

Springtime in Chorlton. Sunshine, rabbits and orange juice. Thank you winter, that will be all.

Clockwork video for Goldfrapp’s Drew

Still image from Goldfrapp's Drew (Clockwork Mix by The Devious Corporation) by Mark Wallis

"wild and fun"   "evocative and beautiful"  "absolutely stellar work"

My remix for Goldfrapp’s Drew got some glowing reviews, so I couldn’t resist making a video to go with it. The original song is haunting and nostalgic, and I added a grandfather clock, an oboe and mandolin. Happy memories and lost time are the main themes here in my short film, and I combine found footage with a visit to the Norfolk holidays of my childhood.

Media City

Manchester, Hollywood of the North. Once a faceless playset of Legoland offices and toy block apartments, Salford Quays has emerged as a creative hub of TV studios, theatres and galleries. Architecturally daring and visually stunning (be there at dusk) this is the proof of Second City status. You can also get really cheap jeans here, too.
