The World is made out of Cardboard / 1 May 2008

Sorry guys, it's been way too long since I last blogged properly here. It's just I have been so busy and I have been living in a cardboard box. No, I am not homeless. I have been a set designer for a super16mm film called 'HERON'. It is written and directed by my adopted son Gary. The main character Edgar Gregory lives in a room made out of cardboard, cardboard bed, desk, mug and computer. One night he meets a heron... That's all I am going to tell you, but basically it is an existential crisis made out of cardboard. Move over home make-over shows, let Dolly make you a bath made out of the best of tesco's rejected brown stuff!
