Julie’s new exhibition “Your Fly is Open” opens this Saturday, the 25th of May, at Stedelijk Museum s-Hertogenbosch and it’s going to be pretty rad. We also have a film trilogy there, projected upon 3 peripheral walls, which is super exciting too!
Here’s some more info- and I will be posting more on this soon. Thank you Julie! And thank you Hannah, Gisele, Matty, Michelle and Serena.
SHOWstudio has published the uncut footage of the Velvet shoot for Roger Dubuis, featuring Daphne Guinness. As I had posted in the blog earlier this winter, I had done the editing of the fashion film that showcases the process and in order to prepare that one, I had also polished this one. It’s 9 hours long and I guess it applies more to the demand of dedicated photographers and creatives alike, but I find it really interesting to see the whole shoot revealed. Sometimes it can be pure magic.
I’ve just found out that our video collaboration with Julie Verhoeven for Melissa was screened at London Fashion Week, and our video for Chloe was part of the film program of the British Fashion Council last week, curated by Kathryn Ferguson. That’s nice news!
On Tuesday, the 22nd of January, at 15.30-17.00, I will be speaking about Fashion Films and Avant-garde Filmmaking at the open fashion meetings of PANSIK scuola di moda. We will cover topics on the aesthetics and contexts of both practices while watching film extracts from the various works of Jack Smith, Jean Cocteau, Guy Bourdin, Kenneth Anger, Nick Knight and many others.
Come join us!
Entrance is free but you need to RSVP. For more info: www.pansik.gr

SHOWstudio just launched ‘Velvet‘, a stunning series of images that celebrates Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis, featuring Daphne Guinness. Check out the editorial gallery by Nick Knight as well as the process film that Marie Schuller and I edited for the project earlier this year. It’s pretty amazing and I am very happy to see it going public with such a comprehensive presentation.
Today marks the official release of my new film entitled “Dark Love of a Wild Generation” (47mins, 2012), on the wild world of poetry and music of Nikos Erinakis und die Haken. Here is it, full of raw sentiments.

Tomorrow we will be releasing the film documentary of Nikos Erinakis und die Haken, that hopes to stand as a visual poem on the wild world that they create through music and words. It is called “Dark love of a Wild Generation” and it is almost an hour long- the longest film I ‘ve created yet.
Meanwhile, above you can see the first part that we had published earlier this year- a short one that follows them on their preparations of their studio recordings in Athens, GR. I hope you enjoy it -more tomorrow.
Here is another film still from Nikos Erinakis und die Haken film that is on the way. It will be released shortly, in tune with their upcoming gig in Athens. In the meantime, this is their new website, which also features some of the visuals that we have created together:
