You may remember the fashion photography collaboration we did with Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design last year. This year, we teamed up with them again, only we decided to take the challenge up a notch.

 

The Fashion Movie Project is an experiment in fashion films. We invited 9 young Cape Town photographers or photography teams to pair up with a styling student from Elizabeth Galloway and a local fashion label. The catch; instead of shooting stills, they had to make short films with a Canon 7D, which was a first for most of the participants.

 

The results will be screened in association with film fanatics Frankly, My Deary on Monday the 26th of November at The Waiting Room on Long Street. It’s R20 to get in, be there at 19:30 sharp to catch all the films.

 

After the screening the winning team will be announced and the party starts with DJs Grmmz Grmmz, Mudblud and Ryan Gosling.

  1. You know, can’t photographers just stay photographers? How about asking some of the up and coming Cape Town based directors to shoot fashion stills? Like you’de ever try and make that happen right? How do you think the struggling photographers would feel? 😛

  2. I think you’re missing the point of a fashion video… As the equipment progresses, so does the range of mediums that a fashion photographer can work with to portray a story/shoot.
    Unless you are trolling, in that case… Trololololol
