KATE MOSS: BEHIND THE SCENES, AND WITH SNAKE
The fashion and culture site Nowness has been generating some cool design-oriented videos lately, including this one — “Everglade,” the first of a four-parter based around surveillance camera footage of Kate Moss shot during a recent photo shoot. From a single side angle, Moss is captured while modeling the 2011 Balmain campaign by filmmakers Inex Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. They brought in artist and animator Jo Ratcliffe to work with the footage and set it all to music by Antony and the Johnsons. Said Van Lamsweerde, “Surrealism is always there in our work, whether it’s in camera or through computer manipulation…. We talked to [Ratcliffe] about it being half horror and half Disney… It ranges from a sinewy heavy metal feel to a much cuter place.” An interview with Ratcliffe can be found here.
