Secret #20: 7 Deadly Sins ??? @debrajayneart former photography student at Plymouth University, fell in love with the magic of The Penventon Park Hotel. Her creative mind sparked and overnight the idea of a short film called the 7 Deadly Sins was born. The creative film tells the story of 7 sins embodied into females - their personifications coming to life and presenting how each sin reacts in certain situations. The initial inspiration came from the Copper Bar because of its “film set feel.” Other scenes were filmed in the ballroom and bedrooms, and the makeup looks were created from makeup artists from Truro College ? Debra described the day of the production to be one of the best days of her life. She said that being able to make the hotel come alive through her work was a dream come true. Debra won the Elevation Indie Film Awards in 2017 and now the still photographs that go alongside the film hang on the wall of our corridor downstairs ??

Based primarily in the A Level Film, Media and Photography Department, Truro College, Cornwall, UK.
Looking forward to being one of the first people in the UK to own this exciting piece of kit.
At the Atrium Gallery, Curator Charlotte Davis confirmed that there had been a lot of interest in the film, with people visiting the gallery every day specifically requesting to see it. The gallery therefore took the decision to play the film on a loop, with the option to press a button at any point to start it again from the beginning.
Seven Deadly Sins Evolution will be screened from Tuesday 15 - Saturday 19 May 2018

SEVEN DEADLY SINS PREMIERE
It was a fantastic turn out as the Seven Deadly Sins team, families, friends, neighbours, colleagues and classmates gathered in the Fal Building reception for drinks and nibbles before taking our seats in the beautiful Fal Theatre for the premiere screening of my first film.
With the exception of the wonderful Dan Cook and Debra Jayne's daughter Alicia none of the team had seen anything but the trailer, so there were unsteady nerves along with great excitement. Any uncertainty soon disappeared though as the wonderful performances of all concerned soon became evident. Cheers and a great round of applause echoed inside the theatre at the end of both the first and second screenings.
Thank you so much to everyone that made the effort to be present at this most special evening, which ended with drinks and dancing in great and talented company.
THE FULL FILM - ENJOY!
Today Debra Jayne worked alongside Jo Chatterley on the portraits of Zoe Tresise as Lust and Georgina Markham as Envy. It was down to the Lady Edith Suite at the Penventon Park Hotel for hair and make up before Envy took a seat at the Copper Bar for her portrait, and Lust made her way up to one of the beautiful bedroom suites for hers.
This concludes the work needed for the Seven Deadly Sins Project. Special thanks to the owners of the Penventon Park Hotel: Aaron, Mark and Laura Pascoe, for their encouragement and support, to Rajesh the General Manager, for inviting Debra up to the hotel and allowing her imagination to run wild, and to Jonathan Lingham, Marketing Manager, for looking after everyone all so very well on shoot day.

It has been a fantastically creative day as Jaymi-lee Porter was transformed into her alter ego, Gluttony. The kitchen staff must have wondered what was happening in the suite below as we a rolling pin, greaseproof paper and a large silver cake stand were requested. Debra worked alongside Jo Chatterley and Andrea McNeil to create their magic. The photo shoot in the dining room concluded with a lot of cupcakes looking very worse for wear.
Debra worked with Jo Chatterley who transformed Hope Foster in to a vision of gold. Following many hours in hair and make up Hope emerged to have her picture taken in one of the beautiful lounge areas of the Penventon Park Hotel. The resulting image, along with the other six, will be posted on to this website in due course.

Getting ready to start shooting my short film/music video 'The Seven Deadly Sins' at the beautiful
Penventon Park Hotel, Cornwall, UK
Shoes to be worn by Emily Hardisty as 'Wrath'. I was still glittering and sticking jewels and the skulls to these shoes well after midnight.
Dresses for Jaymi-lee Porter (Gluttony), Emily Hardisty (Wrath), Kate Lewis (Sloth), Georgina Markham (Envy) and Alicia Wiley (Pride) hanging in my dining room waiting to be loaded into the car for tomorrow.
Not shown is Zoe (Lust)'s red dress - as I delivered it to her house early to ensure that it fits - and Hope Foster (Greed)'s dress which is her own.
The Seven Deadly Sins
For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by ancient writings and the information contained within them. I therefore decided to make the subject of my film 'The Seven Deadly Sins' and intend to continue the theme through in to my final major photography exhibition at the Lemon Street Gallery in Truro, June 2017.
I found seven beautiful female models to play the sins, along with two handsome males who act as their romantic interests,
and decided on a colour scheme for each of the sins, as follows:
Pride ~ Purple
Sloth ~ Turquoise Blue
Envy ~ Green
Greed ~ Gold
Wrath ~ Orange
Lust ~ Red
Gluttony ~ Pink
After much consideration regarding aesthetics for the sins, Debra decided on an elegant long dress/long hair look to go with her fantasy theme. She chose and purchased all of the dresses, bar one - the Gold gown for Greed - which was the model's own, along with jewellery and props, and then wrote a storyline that would show each of the sins acting out their true natures.
Talented hair and make up artists joined the team, and the stunning Penventon Park Hotel very kindly gave permission for the short film to be shot there. Debra had intended to put the final footage to the Massive Attack track Angel, but Universal Music would only agree to twenty five people viewing the finished film. Even thought that would have served her purpose with regards to university commitments, out of respect for all of the wonderful people on board to deliver this project Debra decided to look elsewhere for a suitable track.
For two sleepless nights Debra searched the internet for music that would fit the theme and storyline well. She eventually found the perfect track ~ 'Drive' by Sinfinis ~ an American band. Following correspondence between Debra and their singer, Mary Elizabeth Kennedy, it was very kindly agreed that 'Drive' could be used in the film.
The film studies department at university took an interest in the project and Dan Cook, a most inspirational member of staff, agreed to be on hand for the shoot. Debra learned so much from him and will remain eternally grateful for his help and encouragement.
