Escape With Fashion Film Production

Posted by on / 5 Comments

We all could use an escape right? Even though the lock down due to the Coronavirus pandemic is starting to lift and businesses are starting to open up, it will still be awhile before everything is back up and running. What better way to escape than with fashion film production?

After Party at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival

I found this clip just a couple of months ago of fashion film director Greg McDonald, founder and Producer at Gate5 and cinematographer Roberto Correa talking about their film, The Selfie That Changed The World at the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival in 2017.

I know what you’re asking – why are you talking about myself in the 3rd person? That’s a very good question and I would be asking the same. Well, I want you to know I’m only doing it because my SEO guys say it’s better when I mention my name and title. So I blame it on them.

Where you drunk during the interview?

Even though this interview took place at the after party around 1am at The Lot, a bar and restaurant in La Jolla, and I appear to forget what I did on the film near the beginning of the video, I assure you I was very lucid.

We had a very good time at the festival and our film got a great response. The film is a fashion comedy that takes a peek inside the mind of a selfie addict. It was nominated for Best Creative Direction and Best Narration. The actor, Brandon Bernath, got nominated for Best Actor in CinéFashion Film Awards put on by Cinémoi.

The best moment of the festival

The best moment of the festival for me was when another filmmaker came up to me and said because of the film, no one was taking any selfies after the screening. Yes! The film had some kind of affect.

It felt good to get a strong reaction like that with the film. Not to mention, selfies are to photography what McDonald’s is to food so the stopping of selfie taking was a good thing and I feel I made the world a better place if only for a short time.

Needless to say, the self-imposed selfie ban didn’t last long and people were back to snapping selfies later on. But it was nice while it lasted.

Need a break? Of course you do! Take 1.5 minutes and watch No Words, a video poem. A short film about nature and our neglect of it.
