A few months ago Henry and I got asked to be in a short film collaboration with Life and Thyme and Verve Coffee Roasters. The film, "Prelude," was about waking up in "the city" and how coffee was a part of that routine. It was inspired by this T.S. Eliot quote:
"The morning comes to consciousness
Of faint stale smells of beer
From the sawdust-trampled street
With all its muddy feet that press
To early coffee-stands.
With the other masquerades
That time resumes,
One thinks of all the hands
That are raising dingy shades
In a thousand furnished rooms."
This film is really beautifully shot and inspires a myriad of differing feelings and longings. You can enjoy it below and also check out the story behind it on Life & Time's site.
While shooting in the studio, Life & Thyme also took some gorgeous photos! We're sort of sad they didn't snap a photo of the letterpress, so maybe we can entice them to come back and take more. It's nice to get some updated photos of the studio every once and a while!
We hope the film and photos inspire you today!
