Final Major Project

I made this film for my Final major project on my foundation. It went alongside pictures as part of an advertising campaign.

Vogue Italia

While I was in Italy I thought it would be appropriate to buy italian vogue.

Venice continued

After visiting St Mark's and wondering around Venice we went for a meal. Margarita pizza and cookie ice cream :) I wore a maxi dress from Punkyfish, where I work. Our hotel was a half hour away from Venice so we got the last bus at midnight. We managed to miss our stop and end up walking 2km back to our hotel in the dark.
The next day we got the taxi boat again to a couple of other islands in Venice. For some reason none of us had any signal the whole trip so we left our phones in the hotel. We then realised we had no clock. Bad mistake. We went to see the Rialto Bridge and accidentally missed our last bus a midnight. We jumped on the last bus, which luckily was going to the train station just out of Venice, we then got a taxi back to our hotel-25 euros.
The Bridge was so not worth a mad panic and run and an extra 25 euros.

I have a friend who lives in Treviso about 40 minutes away from Venice. This was the main purpose in the trip. So on the last day we packed our suitcases and hoped on a bus to the train station. As you can probably guess we got lost again and had to wonder for ages trying to find the station. Eventually we found it but had missed our train, we bought our tickets and waited. After making sure it was the right train, we got on thinking 'can it get any worse?'. Then the ticket guy comes around and we show him our ticket, he takes it and says 'girls can you come with me', so we followed. He couldn't speak much English but said we had to pay a 50 euro fine as we didn't stamp our ticket. Of course we protest as no one told us and there were no signs however, he just said if you don't pay now I'll take your passports and you'll have to pay 200 euros in house! The worst part is, when we arrived at my friends and explain the story she says, 'I've lived here for a year and my ticket has only been checked twice!'. Just our luck!

I've just come back from Venice with a couple of friends. It was lovely even though we only went for 3 days we managed to cram loads in. We wanted to go in a gondola but it was 80 euros...didn't want to go on one that much! It was about 30 degrees and the humidity was about 60%. To start with we wondered around Venice, people watched and ate amazing ice cream. Then we took the taxi boat to St Mark's Square, I've never seen so many pidgins. They were so tame, just sitting on people, it was crazy! My friends and I were running and screaming while little kids were holding them.
I took a picture of this lady because I liked her hat with the dress. She was French and didn't speak a lot of English but she seemed very happy that I liked her outfit and wanted a picture.
