by The Blood Thirsty Queen
This Halloween special is inspired by the conspiracy theory (or is it?) That The Royal Family and other families alike are in fact devil worshiping, blood drinking, murdering, humanoid psychopathic abusers.
The footage used is from inside of Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. And really does show an obscene amount of wealth. Paired with the workers (which was footage taken from the restoration of Windsor Castle) I was demonstrating how working class people (along with upper and middle, though not as sinister) are paid a pittance in comparison, are the same people being used by a handful of over privileged billionaires to keep them on their thrones.
For the soundscapes I used samples from The Smiths The Queen is dead, Sex Pistols God Save the Queen and Henry Purcell’s The Funeral of Queen Mary.
I did have a jolly good time impersonating her royal highness. The rigidity and lack of expression were key. I watched a few of her Christmas speeches and tried to find footage of her laughing (there were few). Also a few episodes of The Crown.
I will not be tuning into the queens energy again however. The night after filming I had a terrible dream that I was a clairvoyant and a load of green toxic mist was coming out of my mouth! Cheers 😀
