Making Magic

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.

–Stanley Kubrick

The medium that is the film is one that the fashion industry has seized upon with a gusto normally reserved for trying to sneak into shows. So it is with this in mind I’ve decided that as a pet project, to accompany my other pet projects, I’m going to try and produce my own film. With the help of some amazing people of course. I’ve sorted out the star, and I’ve got the person who actually knows what they are doing (I believe they are referred to as the ‘Director’) waiting on standby. I will even have a whole new collection ready to go as well.
I’m not sure if being impressed by my own organization is a good thing…

The only hurdle so far is the song, and what I want it to be about. At the moment all I can see in my head is something that vaguely features seedy 70’s motel rooms and something vaguely reminiscent of that scene in Scarface where Michelle Pfieffer is dancing with Al Pacino.

Beyond that its a mystery, one that I’ll probably work out as I go. However in the meantime, here are the things that are so far making up the mood board….

Feeling this song for the background, apart from the fact that this film clip is just plain amazing, the song just keeps trumping all other contenders.
