I mentioned previously that the editorial for Hunger Magazine also included a fashion film which came out recently. I always enjoy doing fashion films as it gives me a chance to act. I know I’m a terrible actress, I learnt that in high school, but just to be filming is on a different level to having photos taken. It’s a rush of adrenaline and out of my comfort zone of the click of a camera – which I love.
Anyway here’s the video on the Hunger TV website –
As I mentioned in my previous post, I shot an editorial for the new issue of Hunger Magazine which went on sale 4 days ago and can be purchased online or from WHSmith. I know it’s sold in other places but I’m not entirely sure where. Oh, I should warn you all it is a very heavy magazine, with about 23,000 pages (but no adverts so well worth £4.95), and this caused me to sprain my hand as I had to carry it for 2 miles home!
Rankin’s studio was incredible, when I first walked in I saw about 40 people rushing around doing things before he arrived. The set design looked like it was for a movie. There were caravans on a lawn of grass with 70’s furniture everywhere. There was a huge flashing “Welcome” sign and 2 chickens clucking outside as props. I love modelling with animals, they make shoots much more exciting! I still think my favourite was modelling with the cutest rats on a shoot last year.
The other models at the shoot were lovely, there were 3 other girls and 3 guys. We were supposed to be a trailer trash family, each with a character we had to act not only for pictures, but a film as well which should be coming out soon! Can’t wait to see it and share it with you all. My character was a shy geeky girl with glasses and greasy hair, kinda how I look when I’m lounging at home on my laptop for 8 hours straight (like today). Also the food was insane. I have never eaten so much in a studio ever I felt quite sick afterwards! We even had victoria sponge cake, jaffa cakes, a tonne of biscuits, a selection of cheese and grapes for dessert. I had to unbutton my pants. So attractive, I know.
I will always remember this shoot.
I will leave you with the shots of me from the editorial and the link to the teaser trailer – http://www.hungertv.com/issues/1/video/4610/
On March 6th my alarm woke me up at 4:30am for another days work. I forced myself out of bed questioning myself why do I model? Why do I put myself through this? IT’S 4:30! Nobody should have to be put through this torture! Once I had a cup of caffeine, though, my grumpiness turned into excitement. I was on my way to shoot for Wonderland magazine. However I was travelling from Manchester to The Loft Studios in London, which took nearly 4 hours. That journey has put my off commuting in the early hours of the morning for life.
I arrived at the studios at about 8:45, sat down for a few minutes with another cup of coffee, then it was into hair and make-up. The hair was how I would love to wear mine every day, very grungy with a wet look, pinned up in sections. I’m no hair dresser so that’s the best I can describe it! Every item of clothing was Vivienne Westwood as this editorial was a designer spotlight shoot. It’s at times like these I wish models actually did get freebies! Continue reading
