A small collection of films stills from an 8mm film Oli made in Brisbane when I was a wee 19 year old.

Some days when Melbourne is all grey and miserable I long for warm Brisbane afternoons spent climbing trees, drinking beer and lazing on the couches on our ginormous veranda. Or maybe I just long for the times when I was younger and could still go out dancing every night of the weekend and wake up smiling Monday morning.

I am currently counting down the weeks until I finish my costume design course. With several major costumes to construct I should probably be more concerned with sewing rather than indulging myself in nostalgia... Actually I kind of thrive on last minute pressure, is anyone else guilty of this? I can go weeks without sewing a stitch then in the last few days i'll get an energy burst and sew like a crazy lady.

Lets hope such energy graces me soon!


  1. These pictures are so cool, the texture on them is incredible!

    I am guilty of putting things off and then having a huge productive spurt myself!

  2. Haha, that is pretty much the only way I get things done :)

  3. I hate last minute pressure but that's when I get all my work done, too! Also, these are gorgeous images. Love 8mm.
