When this project was initially assigned, I knew this would be a great opportunity to try something I’ve always wanted to do. I really love short cinematic designer advertisements and the use of story-telling to sell a product.

A few months ago I thrifted a beautiful red gown which my friend and I always called the “running through a field dress.” I immediately knew it was meant to be.

My process began with a vision board on Pinterest where I accumulated all pictures I found inspiring for my video. 

My friend Cara always generously volunteers herself to star in my projects, and like most of our previous shoots, we went into it with just a general idea of what we wanted to capture. We find that this leads us to build upon original ideas on the spot.

I used a Canon r8 and recorded in high-frame rate, a.k.a slow-motion. Cara and I went to this spot out by Churchill that is beautiful at sunset, I found lots of beautiful flowers on our walk which really inspired me too. 

I enjoyed the whole process, especially seeing how my ideas developed throughout every stage of production. This whole thing was experimental as I’ve never done something of the sort and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely want o make similar content in the future.
