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.

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.

Full review to follow shortly, stay tuned!

Good Vibrations

After some jiggery-pokery behind the scenes, The Vibes is now available as a scruffy old cloth-bound book. Which has been left on the floor. Of a beach hut.The Vibes - WordPress blog designed by Mark Wallis around the Adventure Journal theme
It’s still the faithful old Adventure Journal theme, which you can find on your WordPress dashboard, but I had to say goodbye to my spiral-bound notebook, which so many people borrowed for their own blogs. Hope you like the new look!
