Second Documentary

Helllow universe

I finally finished the second documentary with my good friend and writer Marcela Hervia about the homeless issue in Manchester. (About 3 weeks a go but haven’t got time to blog!) When me and Marcela finished the first video it wasn’t any news about any good shelter for them but now there are news that empty buildings will be open for them so hopefully the promises are genuine and we won’t see anyone sleeping rough in this cold winter.

The main thing for me that kept me thinking A LOT is seeing young people on the streets that is not good for the future of a city because those young people are the future. In any situation they need help and direction and I hope they will be taken seriously to be out of the streets and get their lives back.

I don’t know why being homeless became a badge and the forever dark at the end of the tunnel when as a human we know life has ups and downs and everybody deserve help and chances to live as long as they are breathing.

I will write about it soon but … yeah … it just broke my heart watching people living in the streets in the Manchester and as it gets worst from more than 5 years a go till now.

I also made a short comedy animation from one of my short pieces at Commonword Identity writing workshop.

It will be screened at CAN‘s “Community Spirit” event at Mad lab and in Filmonik at old corner house (MMU) and I will upload in youtube soon.

I just invite everyone to watch my documentary just below and let’s not think about the BUSY schedule before Christmas and … yeah I’m fine and I will write about it soon.

A Few Questions, My New Short Film about homeless issue in Manchester

Homeless-in-Manchester-011

It was 3 weeks a go that an image the same as this image at the top hit me badly. It was early in the morning and as usual I was sitting at the second floor of the bus, listening to music, looking at outside.

The junction where it goes to Portland Street a tall man was sleeping beside the wall and the people were passing by with their coffee in hands looking great to go to work and like they are not seeing anything. It hurt … It hurt my heart … As bad as I wanted to scream.

I wanted to scream that “People this is a first world class country. I did not grew up here so I totally understand a differentiation between a situation in a developing country when they don’t care in a obvious way and a first world country where shout about how Human rights are important. I understand it because I lived it so this image is not acceptable for me. In here, Manchester, United Kingdom and mainly because this city and as a resident is important to me to have the image it deserve.”

That image did not leave me and it gets worst when the more asked me if I have any cash. I had rough times in my life too and I knew sometimes you caught in a position that you need help.

So finally last week with the help of my good friend Marcela Hervia we made a short film about the homeless issue in Manchester that is getting worse with the main mission to wake people up. So please watch and Share:

Power of music

Power of Music

Like a piece of ice

Melting on a boiling lava

Drop by drop …

I drip to the music notes

I can’t stop listening

And as much as it melts me

I listen … over & over again

Then I become a part of lava

In a place that knows me the most

When I’m a stranger to all

I put my heads down

And I melt again …

I listen again …

And Its the lava that start melting

By the power of music

P.S Amaterasu “Goddess of the sun” animation finished!

I had a dramatic day because of some important things that needed to change at the last moment but I trusted my editing skills and VICTORY!

This is the first step of visualizing my research as part of Japanese mythology that again is the part of my research.

Hopefully by the beginning of 2015 I can came up with more focus research pattern and draft so I can step up for bigger projects.

Specially with starting working on my website it will get all better place.

It’s like giving the works a nice home and it feels good.

But now for the moment lots of projects is going on.

one big digital and graphic video for a massive performance project for the next 5 month

Do it Project

Thinkproject-logo

This blog started from “Do it” project @ CAN (Community Art Northwest) Manchester.

And this post is about thinking of the project for the end of the course.

I got to know about Manchester blogs from this project and what is more greater than have a blog from and in your city.

Thank you Mick, Sarah and Tommy rose-icon

 

So now I am thinking a lot about the project and how could it be. There are so many ideas in the internet and thinking about something unique and good that can get attentions is like start brushing a rock hoping to do a fantastic sculpture. But there is an other ways like finding a tool to shape the rock or something rather than rock to do a sculpture.

Honestly I have no idea how I come up with that example! but yeah it is like that.

P.S: I love my new desktop background. That green and warm and seems I sat beside that lovely window. (yes it has a window ^_^)
