You know Lowdowners, let me tell ya, I’m a pretty patriotic cat when it comes to home grown talent – I’ve spent time gabbing about Snowgum Films “TROLL BRIDGE’ which is in post production and is going to set the world afire when they release it – and just a couple of hours ago I stumbled (as I do, I have a gammy left leg which means I walk a little funny and if I’m slightly drunk I wind up veering to the left all the time..) onto this little find!
Three local Melbourne talents Christian Blanchard (whose work in fashion photography you might know), Steven Protuder (a local film maker) and producer Dean Drieberg (a guy who’s pretty much aced every creative course that WAAPA and VCA could throw at him) have made a short fashion film TOMORROW’S LOVERS… Watch it above..
Now here’s the kicker!
THE FILM HAS BEEN SELECTED TO PLAY DURING THE PARIS FASHION WEEK. Here’s the press release
Tomorrow’s Lovers, a short film by director duo Folie à Deux (top Australian fashion photographer Christian Blanchard and filmmaker Steven Protuder) and producer Dean Drieberg will be screened at the Centre Pompidou in Paris as the only Australian film selected for A Shaded View On Fashion Film Festival at Paris Fashion Week from November 9 to 11.
Tomorrow’s Lover’s was commissioned by the City of Melbourne and Melbourne Spring Fashion Week to showcase Melbourne’s best emerging design talent. The film was screened during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week as part of the Emerging Designer Series. Staring prominent Australian model Louise Van de Vorst and local Dean Bartlett, the 8 minute short was filmed at iconic Melbourne locations such as Melbourne Town Hall, the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, Fitzroy Gardens, inner-city bars and laneways.
A Shaded View on Fashion Film is the world’s leading Fashion Film Festival and Melbourne-made Tomorrow’s Lover’s will be shown this year alongside side international films by Sophia Coppola, Jim Jarmusch and Ellen von Unwerth for powerhouse fashion labels such as Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Costume National and Agent Provocateur.
Filmmakers Christian Blanchard, Steven Protuder and producer Dean Drieberg are now seeking sponsorship funding to help them attend the festival and award ceremony for which their film is in the running to win awards judged by esteemed influential figures from Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Lincoln Centre New York and W Magazine. Folie à Deux will film a documentary of their roller coaster journey from varying hometowns in Australia to the Centre Pompidou Paris to inspire other Australian filmmakers.
