Yeah! becomes Release the Bees!

So there's been a development. I'm now working on release the bees continuing on along same ideas as yeah! but we decided that the visuals I was creating fited release the bees much better plus that will be Not Squares next single. Won't be putting the video up until its done but will keep putting up development work so you can follow that.

Hello everyone.

So work is under way for Not Square's second music vid, this time it's their song Yeah!

I know how much people enjoyed being part of Asylum so wanting to make this video as inclusive as possible.

So, I've suggested to the lads that the development work should be posted online. This way if anyone has any suggestions/ideas, whether it's links to images/videos on the web or drawings you've done or whatever, they can all be shared in a collaborative project.

The work will be posted on the bright stem
facebook page and blog so put your links there or email them across to No doubt the lads will post some stuff on their page as well.

Also hopefully I'll be organizing a day so that people can get together and get artistic with crayons and paints and shoot some footage for the vid. Should be a fun day if I get my arse in gear and get it organized!

Update 14.03.10

Hello everyone

so here's some updates:

I have just loaded new card designs to the website:

Work has just begun on the next music video for Not Squares song YEAH! will keep you updated on this but it looks like its going to be rather bright and rather exciting so keep your eyes open for that one!

Thanks for all the great feedback on the Asylum video. It seems to have gone down a real treat so couldn't be much happier with that :)

Facebook has changed the way its doing things. It seems groups where so last year so brightstem now has to have its own facebook page so that I can link it to my website:

bright stem also now has a twitter account if you'd prefer to be kept updated that way:

as well as this I have started my own personal twitter and blog so feal welcome to follow those too they will be updated more regularly with whatever nonsense I feel like:

Lucid Dream

Right this is quite exciting, I've been waking up quite early recently then falling back to sleep. This has resulted in remembering a number of dreams I've had and this morning i had a lucid dream! Only ever remember having one of these before when I was we lad. The dream was in HD i.e. crystal clear gorgeous colours I remember being absellutly amazed by the detail of it all. There where bushes and trees all in blossom . the scene was slowly moving like I was in a car travelling at slow speed (but there was no car) i began to realise that i was able to change what was happening not to exact forms it was sort of like moving your hand through water or playing music. I tried to make an actual form like a figure but it didn't work everything just fell apart and i was left with a white space with bits flying about. If this all sounds a bit weird well it was but imagine your watching a film and then you start to realise that the back ground is changing to reflect your feelings eventually you don't care about the actors or the narrative and you become like a conductor but a conductor in charge of all your senses and feelings its quite fantastic!

if you want to get an idea of what it looked like follow this link to a piece of work I did a few years ago but think less gold and more spring.
