Real life has eaten me a bit. One of my Summer 'to do' things was get back into regular updates, which considering uni ended about three weeks ago didn't go brilliantly, did it? So, appologies for the (half year) delay; I'd like to say it's been worth it and I've been ultra productive in uni, but I'm not really in a habit of lying.

I have worked on a lot of video projects that I'm honestly not proud enough to show off on here or vimeo for quality reasons (although here's a light hearted thing I shot in my first year of college - three years ago - and edited/sound edited a couple of months ago: ) and I might have some more serious/quality pieces up by the end of Summer (October. 2012. Hopefully).

So, here's the plan. I'll get some of the photos lurking around on up, polish up some of the drafts and dribbles of writing I have lurking around, and work hard on earning forgiveness, m'kay?

I think of myself as rather an honest person. That is not to say I do not lie. I will happily misdirect the truth, or agree with a complete fabrication of the truth for honest and dishonest reasons.

I will often smuggle large portions of heartfelt truth by introducing one obvious lie into their midst. The receiver recognises the lie, and thus believes that all of what I have told them is false. I find it useful when you cannot bear to keep the truth to yourself, nor can you bear the consequences of anyone finding out.

Another technique, and a useful one at that, it to tell the absolute and utter truth, with a completely straight face, and then laugh as the receiver begins to believe it. They will assume that the truths are false, and that you have been playing them for a fool. Perhaps ironically, in this situation, they only become the fool when they disbelieve your words.

Lie, you may have realised, can be far too harsh a word for what I usually practise. Yet falsehood sounds altogether far too pretentious. Misdirection is merely a street performer’s code word for their art.

Like many people, I exploit human nature for my own gain, to weave a cocoon of truths around me that no one can see through. However, I have found a way to give my metaphorical cocoon physical existence. Writing.

In all my fictitious works, I place a vein of truth; in every truth, an element of fantasy. As you read, you will slowly find yourself encapsulated by my lies and you might be lucky enough to glimpse a fragment of the real me.
