06 Nov Tao Farren-Hefer and Alexa Singer’s Saturnine Fashion Film
While stills photographer Alexa Singer was busy on a test shoot, Tao Farren-Hefer took to filming behind the scenes, capturing models in between styling changes. The result is a short fashion film titled Time, which was conceptually challenging for Tao as he attempted to create a narrative thread post-shoot during the editing process. Footage of Sherica and Anya in sports luxe clothing is shown alongside imagery of wild cats, birds, and abstract cityscapes. “I tried to convey a feeling of the models being trapped a surreal area, while the approaching helicopter seemingly provides them with a form of escape,” explains Tao.
