reference: we worked last summer for a prop design company in brixton, we had to trim 1000 giant paper roses that were made in china and then shipped over to us to trim and style and then be painted because they had been made in the the wrong colour. The roses painted the roses in the same room as us which had no ventilation but we were not allowed to open the roll up door because the warehouse backed onto coldharbour lane which we got told by a man walking by when did rebel and open the shutter that this was murder mile, but everywhere in london has there own murder mile. this was a horrible job but it was the best paid job ive had since i graduated with a fine art degree.
