Fashion Fluidity

HOME by MOTEL COLLECTIVE from Yasmine Bryce on Vimeo.

Whilst Nick Knight has been shooting fashion films for many years, and the idea of shooting fashion in moving image is certainly not new, there is no doubt there has been a proliferation of fashion films due to the advent of HD in (stills) cameras. Canon's D-Series in particular has turned many photographers into budding, or successful directors. Already used to the superior lenses and handheld camera work implicit in photographic practice, many photographers have made the transition to director of photography in double quick time and many have also discovered there is more to making films than shooting them. Great to see plenty of fashion and art films being made locally by photographers like David MandelbergDerek Henderson, Garth Badger, Daniel Max and Yasmine Bryce among others. Bryce and Amy Fraser of Motel Collective directed Home (above) which imparts beautiful music and editing by Motocade's Eden Mulholland and stars Erynne Mulholland and Charlotte Holmes
