My first ever music video

I met Singapore based Analog Girl at a Showstudio event in east London years ago.
We stayed in touch, she used to buy my Glovedup Gloves for her performances.
Then earlier this year, Mei (the woman who is Analog Girl), asked if she could use some of my digital films to create a music video for her new single.
“More than You Know” was just released.

Timeout Singapore called the video “trippy”: https://www.timeout.com/singapore/blog/watch-now-the-analog-girl-releases-music-video-for-more-than-you-know-061617

And Buro 24/7 Interviewed me about the collaboration and my creative life in general: http://www.buro247.sg/culture/insiders/the-analog-girl-more-than-you-know-music-ls528.html

 

My first ever voiceover

Of course I agreed to record a series of voiceovers for Ibiza record label and radio station when I was there earlier this month. What fun. And now they’re rolling and you can/should listen to the first radio show of the summer because it’s brilliant – and you can hear me.

 

Peter Lindbergh interview on Showstudio

Showstudio sets a beautiful scene for Lou Stoppard to asks brilliant questions which are answered in an open, inspiring and totally cool way by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh.

I’m pretty sure the first time my Glovedup Gloves appeared in Vogue Italia was in a Peter Lindbergh story. Stylist Patti Wilson commissioned me to create special pieces for the story. We called them Robot gloves – they were metallic, crystal and metal studded – one pair had a knuckle visor. There were more stories later, but this was the first – thank you Peter and Patti.

Anthropomorphizing

Standing up close to these Gavin Turk exhibits at my favourite London Newport Street Gallery, I felt I was connecting to something alive. I wonder that when an artist creates an object, there is some kind of energy transference that remains in the object long after the work is completed, and this is what I feel when I get close.

Tobias Gremmler

Virtual Actors in Chinese Opera is quite definitely the most inspiringly beautiful motion graphics I’ve discovered so far. More art than fashion and just one of the many exceptional works of teacher, guru and master digital craftsman Tobias Gremmler

 

Arice

Arice’s film Lure was created in collaboration with Iceberg for the Vogue Italia and Fashion Film Festival Milano. Whilst I struggle a little bit with the proportions of his star avatar; the particle effects and VFX in this film are high definition sophistication.

Thomas Traum

“New Images for a New World” – I’ll say.

It was the gamer style movie for Christopher Rayburn’s SS15 collection that first caught my attention. More recently – the crazy print clash animations for Kenzo blew my mind!

Thomas Traum is shaping digital fashion.

 

Louis Vuitton Series 4

The  Louis Vuitton Series 4 advertising campaign came out about a year after creating my own virtual model Faye and was the most inspiring example of what I needed to work towards. LV chose Lightning the heroic character from the Final Fantasy cult video game and commissioned their creators at Square Enix studios to produce the first high-end fashion CGI campaign to show the latest collection. It’s fabulous. It’s the future. It’s already in the past.
