A few weeks ago I went to Budapest for the first time to take part in Hungary's first Fashion Video Festival. I had been invited over to show some of my video work and to act as a judge for the festival's video competition. I had a really fantastic trip and found the standard of work to be really high and imaginative. The overall winner of the competition was filmmaker and photographer Mate Moro (above receiving his award) www.cargocollective.com/matemoro whose beautiful film (above still) really stood out. www.fashionvideofestival.com/about As well as judging and giving a presentation of my own work I took part in a round table discussion with various people from the Hungarian fashion industry about the evolving genre of fashion film. Other international speakers included the amazing pair Andreas Waldschuetz and AdiaTrischler.
I will be co-presenting a talk at the Royal College of Art this Wednesday with Fashion & Textiles research student Nathaniel Beard. We will be joined by artist & fashion designer David Saunders of design label DavidDavid.
The talk is an introduction to fashion & moving image and we are planning a series of lectures throughout the year that will look at the genre of fashion & time based media in more depth.
It's free and starts at 10.30am in Lecture Theatre 2 at the RCA, Kensington Gore on Wednesday 1st.
