Erin Fetherston: Fashion Films
This short film, starring Zooey Deschanel, is really fun and playful. I really like the editing (in the way that it is sped up in places) and the lighting. It reminds me of a dream sequence, and it is very fantasy, and indie, and reminds me of musical talent such as Florence and the machine. The styling would easily fit into Lula magazine. Directed by Ellen Von Unwerth
Birds of A Feather is a really great short fashion film. The story is based around the Pied Piper of Hamelin (The boy played his pipe and all the rats followed) but in this context, a girl plays a sparkly trumpet, and all the fashion conscious femmes follow her through the town. This film is more glamorous than the previous, the styling is 50s/60s inspired, with glittery mouse masks as props. It is filmed in classic black and white, and is a beautiful and playful film. Styling and props by Sharon Anderson
Wendybird stars Kirsten Dunst and is about a factory worker who finds a dressing up box. It is very much in the style of 1950s film and fashion, and is very childlike and fun, at one stage the girls are playing in a playground. The editing is sped up, and is broken and disjointed, and in black and white, making the film look really authentic.
