A. I was first drawn in by a friend who was making little films on a video camera for fun in Jr High School!
A. A fashion film lives across genres and styles and usually involves some kind of aesthetics or trend that gravitates around the aura of fashion in one way or another…if that makes sense!
A. I think it’s a great way to get into making films since it’s so open and free.
A.Because it’s hard to pin point exactly what the genre is, it’s able to encompass an exciting wide range of creative talent from all kinds of backgrounds.
A.I love gassing peoples work up! It’s so hard to make anything happen, it’s so much work just to get it out, so it’s important to be positive and welcoming! Any creative field is competitive and that’s great too. Everyones always angling for attention one way or another, but it’s all suppose to be fun and inspiring. That’s the point. I love when someone I know or respect makes amazing work!
A. I think it’s important for filmmakers to show what they’ve done and most of all see other work that’s out there. I love that these festivals exist! Thank you for getting it all together!
A.For me it would be to take the work, the concept, the execution seriously but never yourself.
A. A fashion film doesn’t have to always be directly tethered to a brand. I can have more artist freedom perhaps.
A. That artistic freedom allows the brands to tell their story in an unconventional way that can really showcase their creativity originality and taste.
A.Film can obviously be very expensive and finding brands who are willing pay premium budgets are rare! But getting to make these films is always an opportunity to show you can be creative and resourceful with not much.
A.Start somewhere, be bad, fail, try things, don’t be boring, put your work out there, don’t take yourself too seriously and have fun!
