Spring/Summer fashion documentary + photoshoot created by 3 local San Jose, CA artist.
We are 3 creative people working in collaboration to create a fashion editorial, complete with pictures, text, and a documentary video. The team consists of a fashion photographer, creative writer, and a cinematographer. We aren’t all professionals. This project is a labor of love. We have no financial backing from any magazines or fashion agencies. We are three ordinary guys from the California Bay Area who are chasing a dream.
Why should you care? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create something beautiful with other people’s money? We sure have!
No but really, we’re kind of broke. We’ve pooled together some funds out of our own pockets, but the scope of this project has proven just large enough to break the bank. We have a clear vision of what the end product should be, but the project will never reach its full potential at our current level of funding. While we could just make due with the meager sums of money that we have, we really don’t want to half-ass this.
The concept art that you see above is a sketch provided by our photographer, Alvin Cho. This is what our entire project will look like if we fail to meet our funding goal. Please...save us. We assure you, Alvin is a much better photographer than he is an illustrator.
We are creating a Spring / Summer fashion editorial for 2012 called Chasing Daylight. This project is a thematic continuation of Alvin’s 2011 Fall / Winter fashion editorial, Fallward Planning.
Chasing Daylight is a celebration of sun, summer, youthful optimism, and the Californian journey to self discovery. The project will feature a modern take on the Californian fashion sensibilities of the 1960s. The text below:
"The days are too short to hunt for shade. She races along the California coast, running through meadows, skipping through streams, constantly in search of that unattainable something. She is searching for the promise of an eternity of summer days. She is chasing daylight."
For the ones who pledge at the highest level, you'll add you into the fashion editorial. Basically, if you're in the SF Bay Area & you have the right look and fit into one the scenes we've planned we will add you in.
Along with the the fashion spread, we are also creating a documentary video to show a behind-the-scenes look of the making of this spread. The video will document our planning, shooting, editing & Kickstarter funding stages. For those of you in the Kickstarter community who pledge at the second highest level, we will feature you somehow in our video. You could elect to send us a video clip, or to send in a picture, or to write a quick testimonial blurb explaining why you donated. Or you know, you could donate at the second highest level and then send in a rude testimonial blurb just so that we would be forced to include a title card that reads, “U guys suck a$$”. Bring it on. Donate at the highest level, and we’ll do it. We’re not proud.
All Kickstarter funding will be applied 100% to project expenses most of which is to help fund the documentary. Other items include the following:
- Makeup Artists
- Photography equipment
- Recording media (to film the documentary)
- Fees to secure shooting locations
- Administrative fees
