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/
In March I was lucky enough to shoot with Rankin for the biannual issue of Hunger magazine which is available on sale from May 10th. For anyone who doesn’t know, Rankin is a renowned fashion photographer worldwide and has shot pretty much everyone from Kate Moss to the Queen. You can see his work here – http://rankin.co.uk/
So a couple days ago I noticed Hunger TV were releasing daily teaser videos from what to expect in the next issue, and I came across one from our shoot! The shoot was called “Welcome To Oddity Park” and included seven models, four girls and three boys. I’ll talk all about the details of the shoot in my next post, when I can show you all the pictures!
For now, here’s the preview…
P.S I’m the one sat down with the glasses and the book
