As the pioneer of street style photography, Bill Cunningham, once said, “The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been and always will be.” With the recent influx of street style blogs and the fashion world craving candid streetwear shots, street style is finally getting the cred it deserves. But is all this new attention transforming what was once genuine and raw into just another overly-produced shell of itself?
Garage Magazine created a short film called, “Take My Picture” that explores this fashion phenomenon. It delves into the meta issue of bloggers photographing other bloggers for their blog, the “peacock-ing” effect outside of fashion shows as well as the importance street style has on culture.
Get a glimpse of this overtly colorful, pattern-centric, fashion-slaved world.
At a worldly 22 years of age, Kaleb Lechowski has taken it upon himself to write, animate, direct and produce his own Sci-Fi short, R’ah. Born of a simple 3-D requirement assigned during his second semester at school, he went well above and beyond the requirements, spending seven months to create his dystopian interpretation of otherworldly existence. The care taken on his craft has been likened to the kind of stuff coming out of fully-funded Hollywood productions, earning Kaleb some great press and a chance at creating a full length feature film version.
We love seeing Millennials reshaping the ways we create and share, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for Kaleb! Check out his short.
The dinner party – for children, it’s the epitome of a boring night. Classy jazz playing in the background while adults pay just enough attention so you have to be on your best behavior. Where’s the fun in that?
Faye Planer and Tristan Martin’s short film, “Champagne Capitalist,” dips into the imagination of a young girl trapped in dinner party hell as she transforms her predicament from banal evening to fun adventure. The filmmakers employ stop-motion animation – an art that seemed nearly lost to CGI – to help tell the tale. The painstaking process is a nod to the maker movement that Millennials are helping take mainstream, and we’re excited to see more!
