“Gotta lotta people tryna drain me of my ENERGY” -Drake



Think slicked back hair, latex paint, bondage latex tape (don’t be alarmed, we got permission from the models) and androgynous clothing and then you will arrive at our creative direction for our Oil Energy Shoot. For this shoot on Tuesday, we decided to have both a male and a female model to create diversity for our fashion film and to show different sides of our story because what’s the point in limiting ourselves, I mean guys need to wear clothes as well (or in regards to this shoot not that much clothing).

Edgar and Chloe

Garments: John Lewis, New Look

Chloe from Premier Production Models and Edgar (self made model) worked brilliantly for this shoot. We would like to thank them both for being able to participate. Each shoot we are doing helps us become more experienced in using the filming equipment and building up the suspense of how our Energy Fashion Film #chooseyourenergy will turn out. MUA Brooklyn Adebowale worked her magic and transformed our lovely models into what looked like a casting for Mad Max, Fury Road characters to fit in with our inspiration boards. Brooklyn not only created the looks for the make up but agreed to be the model for our Gas Energy shoot which was shot today.

Eat your heart out Beyoncé – Brooklyn slayed on this shoot and looked fabulous whilst doing so. It was all about the location as well as the model today because we needed an open space with lots of air so we, to put it bluntly didn’t choke anyone  (I’m not sure if our insurance covers that) with the gas bombs that were set off. Movement and confidence is a huge part of this Fashion film so it has helped that all of the models are comfortable in front of  a lens.

Outdoor shoots can always be tricky as the weather can change faster than a students mind deciding between Thai food or pizza. Today the rain held off and although it was cold everyone powered through like complete bosses. We can’t wait for our next shoots to come together.
