I’m Bloody Ibiza!

On more than one occasion, by more than one person, i’ve been called Tenacious. It came back into my life this weekend, and as I twirled it around in my mouth, I thought of the pros and cons that come with this as your tagline. We’re all a little bit narcissistic in that we like […]

Karlie v Vintage?

I directed this stop motion video for my friends salon earlier in the year and have always been fascinated by the way vintage looks on other people. The little video contains my lovely friend Juliet, with hair done by Anne Wilson at Broughton Place Hair and Beauty. Two of my good friends pull it off […]

Wicked, Edinburgh Playhouse

Wowee! If you’ve so much as glanced in the direction of Greenside Plaza in the last few weeks, you’ll have noticed the distinct green theme. Oh yes, Wicked is in town! Set to run into the early days of January, the show has set up shop to entertain Edinburgh throughout the Christmas and Hogmanay period. […]

And Just Like That, She Was Back…

I know right, I’ve started with that sentence so many times, but dear blog readers, (you lucky (?!) two who stayed with me) I think I am back, I am definitely still dreaming! It’s tentative, but the creative juices are flowing at Casa De Karlie. I’ve been writing a bit, I’ve been thinking a lot, […]

Bootleg Film Festival and Virgin Media Shorts

Wowee what a week! Aside from all the important everyday, (2 children, 3 clients, 1 job, 1 HND course, and a social life); two important things have happened. First up was my friend John McPhail, getting his short film, ‘Just say Hi’, short listed in the Virgin Media Short film competition. 850 films streamlined down […]

Vintage Hair Stop Motion

This is little Stop Motion video I made for my lovely friends at Broughton Place Hair and Beauty. They opened their doors a few months ago and I dropped in for a colour correction, remember that blog post? Anne has masses of hair experience and specialises in Vintage hair and wedding hair ups. Go see […]

It’s Been Some Time

Well, well, well… It has been some time people! Like most things in life, blogging becomes a habit and on the flipside not blogging also becomes a habit. I’ve no real excuse and so, for those of you wondering what I’ve been up to I’ll do a quick round up – films and life. I […]

Man of Steel

Superman is my favourite superhero. I’ll be honest, I tolerate Spider-Man, Batman? Well you just have to don’t you? Ironman? He’s still new to me, taking baby steps there. But Superman? A writer who saves everyone? What’s not to love!! When I came out of Man of Steel, I wondered how I would sum it […]

My Friends and Me – Top 10 Films of All Time

Choosing your top ten films of all time has to be one of the hardest things to do. If you love film on any level then you may as well try to ask yourself which of your children you love more. However, today, we attempted this. Myself and five friends have noted a list of […]

Jonathan Sothcott – Leading the Film Making Revolution

It’s not often in life I meet someone I would like to be, but Jonathan Sothcott is currently just that. He’s become my hero of late, so I was chuffed beyond chuffed to grab an interview with him. Film making is an old business, but that doesn’t mean you can’t teach an old dog new […]
