Mischief Managed!

Sooo it's that time of the year again, and i mean.. NEW HARRY POTTER MOVIE! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows .. Part 1! Yes, part 1! what a bummer that they split the movie into 2 parts instead of having it EPIC STYLE FOR 5 HOURS! ahem.. anyways..

Watched it on monday, and of course I had to wear something Harry Potter-y to enhance my excitement. And what better way to do it than having it DIY style!
This is my 2nd Harry Potter stencil (you can see my first one here). I chose something more obvious than the last one for the design and it was "Mischief Managed" which is the phrase that the Weasley Twins used to close the Marauder's Map. But then again, I didn't want to look too nerdy with "magical" fonts and all, so I decided to make it as if it's a pop punk band name or something lol and chose an appropriate font for the design. Ok enough with the blabbering that prolly noone will read,.. onto the pics!

stencil that i used (click for bigger picture):

yeah initially i had stars in the design but in the end i changed them into lightning bolts instead.

Bought the oversized tshirt at John Little for $5, and i cut the super tight neck..

close up look kinda shows how sloppy my stencil this time is! bleeding everywhere.. Proof that stenciling while watching 30 rocks is somehow not a good idea.

Me in the new shirt! :3

The cutting + stenciling took me about an hour, much faster than my previous harry potter shirt. WHEEE! Mischief managed!

One Day On Earth: A Tourist in Singapore

New short by me! Featuring Irene KW as the tourist girl.

One Day On Earth: A Tourist in Singapore from Marcia Mailoa on Vimeo.

This is for the One Day on Earth 2010 project where the video submitted has to be shot on the date of 10-10-10 or Oct 10, 2010.

The idea for this short is from the fact that although I'm a resident and working in Singapore, I'm still a foreigner here; basically, a tourist. Part-time tourist that is, cos I work on the weekdays so... anyways. And I enjoy going to the tourist traps attractions here like Esplanade and Merlion which are featured in the film.

The film was shot in photomotion style. The initial idea was to have Irene posing like in a typical tourist picture, facing straight to the camera and smiling, for every single shot. But eventually we kinda ditched the monotonous idea and did some fun poses (yet still tourist-y! like peace sign, jump in front of the object, etc) and in the end it came out as a photo-montage of the whole journey. Yes, this film was lacking of planning (I just had the idea for the short just few hours before shooting), but spontaneity rocks and it was fun.

Fun facts:
. it took us 3 hours to shoot the whole thing
. i took about 551 pictures (my forefinger was numb when we're done shooting lol!)

Enjoy :D

Work in Progress: Sketchbook Project 2011

Met my good friend from high school when she was on vacation here last week, and I finally got the chance to put her in illustration form for my sketchbook! It's still uncoloured though. And I also finally could meet my other good friend whom i haven't seen since forever, aka siduahuruf although only through webcam, but it still made me happy :). So here they are:
