Enigma’s music video for Sadeness (Part II)

“All your life /
You’ve been waiting to be free /
Trade your pride for ecstasy /
That’ll make you /
Reach the sky” – Sadeness (Part II)

Last August I acted in a music video for the band Enigma‘s new song Sadeness (Part II). The song was released in October.

What do you think? …I’ve noticed both the song and the music video have had mixed reactions from hardcore fans. I don’t know how to to talk about music, so I won’t say anything about the song. Some fans have asked if there’s a version of the video without pixelated-private-parts. Well I haven’t come across one. I guess I could start claiming that that’s actually just what I look like naked.

The story in the music video has two characters – a dark, brooding monk and a mysterious seductive woman. You’ll notice that I played the latter. At first the mysterious woman is a luring temptress.

The monk takes her to his decadent den of dark desires.

Now the woman is a prisoner.

There is some inevitable running away and chasing.

And an ultimate fight between good and evil.

And in the end, it turns out…well, I shouldn’t spoil it. So I guess you should just watch the video.

This is the trailer for ‘Models. Der Film’, a documentary by Leif Allendorf about four different models living and working in Berlin – Jenny Jane, Melanie Unrau, Nadya Wendt and me.

Mary Martin London Fashion Show – David Bowie tribute

A blog post by Elena Tun

We were beyond excited when we were invited to Mary Martin’s fashion show in tribute to David Bowie. We were also curious to see how she would pull it off; few pop and fashion icons are adored and revered as much as Bowie, so it is a difficult inspiration to live up to. Continue reading


‘Over Your Head’ by Team Foul – behind the scenes write-up

In July I returned to my childhood neighbourhood of South East London to shoot a quirky rap video with rap duo Ley and Lucky who perform under the name of Team Foul. I’d never acted in a music video for a song with words before, and the brief was quite vague – the plan was to make it up as we went along. It was real novelty, a challenge, and an unusual opportunity. Continue reading


‘Over Your Head’ by Team Foul

This is a music video which I filmed in London last July (2013) with rap duo Ley and Lucky, a.k.a. Team Foul. See next post for the behind the scenes write-up.


Switzerland in January

I’ve been almost perpetually in a state of being ‘on tour’ since the beginning of this year, but now I’m back at my base in Berlin for just about long enough to sit down and record some of my adventures on the bloggy thing. I also started using tumblr within the last 24 hours, and much of the content between this blog and that one will overlap, though this one will involve more discursive writings from time to time, and tumblr will be for piccies.

So I started the year with a Europe tour beginning in Switzerland. A short documentation of my little excursion, starting with Zurich, featuring Amriswil and concluding in Luzern.

Reykjavík’s neat hour

My second installment of iPhone vid tributes to cool cities. Reykjavík, capital of Iceland, veritable world-class partying town, a considerably cool and cute city on that eccentric island floating in the North Sea. This is Reykjavík’s New Year celebrations which they take very seriously (in so far as they take anything seriously). Music is ‘Reykjavík’ by Sykur. The lyrics in the chorus ‘Reykjavík ϸú vekur mig’ mean ‘Reykjavík you wake me (up)’.


A snapshot of my first month in Berlin

Rumours of my disappearance have not been exaggerated. A couple of months ago I somewhat mysteriously vanished from Cambridge and to my own surprise migrated into Continental Europe. Continue reading
