72 Names (Hallelujah) Day : 72 The Last Day – The Announcement of the Winners & My Personal Thanks

Today is the most special and emotional video for me as although I got tired towards the end, I am sure I will feel some emptiness now.

It has been a great school for me that taught me about campaign, social media, rights and wrongs as a small label and most important of all that there is help out there, you just need to ask for it.

Firstly I’d like to thank all the people that participated in the videos and let me do interviews with them. I’d like to thank Rupert Truman that besides from taking the photos for my single and album gave me a few tips of how to shoot myself at home with minimum cost of lighting and do it by myself.

I’d like to thank Caz Reason, the Graphic Designer who besides from designing me the beautiful cover, she edited most of the videos which was a huge help – thank you!

I’d like to thank Alison Lamb that without her I would not do it, helping with putting it all together, every Sunday we met to plan the next 2 weeks ahead and when I was away, she took charge of the videos. I true talent and loyal person.

Matt Facy one of the interns who also played with me in the last few gigs, a great communicator, great guitarist with big future ahead of him – thank you!

All the other interns – Sellina and Tim – you have done great job with YouTube and Twitter thank you for being on the go for 72 days.

The graduates – Reuben and Fabi, who arranged me the visit to Rome and the interview – Thank you and good luck in your new world.

Max, for creating me a great website that was so easy to work with so I could change the videos each day myself.

Firgas from Raw Material for telling me to do something with the number – its all started from you. Matt also from there for the press release.

Vocally Sound for joining the video shoot and Charles J… for the music video that I can’t wait to see – it has been a pleasure working with you.

My husband Simon for the support, loyalty, ideas, filming from time to time, correcting my English, buying so many cameras and stands and standing me for the last 72 days with that ‘mad’ idea! Thank you – I love you!

Now to the biggest thank you to you my viewers and fans – you really kept me going. So many people who saw the videos didn’t even put once a like or comment but to you, who were there all the way through, now its time to acknowledge you and get into the winners of my different competitions.

4. Par 72 Golf. The word “par” (as in “par-3”) is a term in the game of golf used to denote the pre-determined number of strokes that a scratch golfer should require to complete a hole, a round or a tournament (the sum of the pars of each round). Typical championship golf courses have par values of 72, comprising four par-threes, ten par-fours, and four par-fives.

A golfer’s score is compared with the par score. If a course has a par of 72 and a golfer takes 75 strokes to complete the course, the golfer’s reported score is +3, or “three over par”.

72 Day (Hallelujah) Day : 70 Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mystical Side & Da Vinci Code – 72 – Interview with Silvano Vinceti

The video of the Mona Lisa came to me like a gift from heaven! I read that an art historian in Italy had found that the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci who painted the Mona Lisa had the number 72 in the background.

From that moment and in less than a week of the discovery I found myself in Rome doing an interview on TV with Silvano Vinceti president of Italy’s National Committee for Culture.

Almost as another miracle a young Italian woman sent us her bio to work on the 72 days campaign. After a 10 minute interview I knew that I would like her to be a part of it but more than that I gave her the mission to arrange the interview with Silvano and she herself, Fabiola Miccone is the translator and the one who got me the interview.

The most important thing for me was to find that Leonardo da Vinci was very much into kabbala and I learnt about his mystical side for the first time. in the video I also include a short clip from Sonia Ducie Dip.CSN.AIN
NUMEROLOGIST about the subject.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Short Clip from My Day of Filming the Music Video for 72 Names (Hallelujah) Day : 68

A short video of the filming of the 72 Names (Hallelujah) video. It was the biggest production that I have ever been responsible for. We had 12 people on board traveling down to Dover and 7 members of the Vocally Sound choir that are guest singers on my new single.

The video starts with all of us on the way to the beach at Samphire Hoe near Dover and I promise to show afterwards when we are back home, but as always in filming unexpected things occur! We arrived at the location 3 hours later than scheduled, the wind was very strong on the day and it got dark earlier due to the delay.

It was an amazing experience and I don’t have doubt that the final version will be stunning.

72 Names (Hallelujah) Day 67 : Designing the 72 Names T-shirt

A short video of creating for the first time a T-shirt with something of my own. I love the fact that in the morning I decided to go and do it and by lunchtime it was ready. Still I need to put much more time into getting the right shape of T-shirt and design. Every part of it is important in the process of doing any type of design: the material, shape, colour, fonts etc. At a later stage I will have T-shirts for sale on my website but its still early days!

72 Names (Hallelujah) Day : 66 Interview with Rupert Truman Who Has Photographed – Pink Floyd, Muse & My Single
