Another look back to earlier this year (10th April, to be precise) and a day spent filming in London with Murielle Gonzalez Oisel for a new website called OffBeat London: ( http://www.offbeatlondon.co.uk/ ), specifically:-
She later posted up the video on Vimeo:
…and on YouTube:

- it’s only 2’ 16” long so it won’t tax your brain too much and people seem to like it - Ah! my wonderful adoring public…I love you all!.
Basically, we spent a very nice sunny Spring Saturday afternoon together, being interviewed at an outside coffee shop in Jermyn Street and then a stroll through Green Park - from Piccadilly to Buckingham Palace - chatting and filming and snapping away as we went. Listening to the film she made, my voice was terribly gruff and gravely that day - maybe it was the effect of the traffic exhaust fumes from Jermyn Street.
I lost count of the number of times we were stopped by tourists and asked for a photo (see the results below) - you can tell it was sunny, I seem to have with a permanent squint that day.
When I look back on that time of the year, it was a busy time. The sun had started to peek through after a long, hard and cruel winter, it was only a few days after I’d done the film with Russian TV (see this blog: http://rayfrenshamworld.blogspot.com/2010/04/filming-with-russian-tv_06.html

and just a day after Ian Flitman and I had filmed my section for The People, his interactive video installation (see this blog: http://rayfrenshamworld.blogspot.com/2009/08/and-now-i-am-become-art-installation.html
