Best Cinematography: The Game of Things by Cristian Straub -KALTBLUT`S FAVORITE
Short Film commissioned by Hamburg fashion brand Ethel Vaughn.
ABOUT: “As I stared up into the bright blue sky that was near the end of what felt like a trillion years, I was visited by a horrible sense of claustrophobia. A claustrophobia that sets in only when no space is great enough to contain you. Cause you have all this stuff inside you that refuses to leave. All those useless stupid things from the past.” … a female voice whispers in the beginning of the film. Things talk relationships. This is the premise for THE GAME OF THINGS, Cristian Straub’s latest fashion short film for German fashion label Ethel Vaughn. A woman is haunted by her past, by things and moments she once shared with someone. As the film unfolds we get a grasp of the romantic relationship that is no more. The woman is determined to clean up her life – by setting all the “useless, stupid things” from the past on fire. In the meantime, a mysterious rider appears. And it looks like he’s up to no good… Once again, director Cristian Straub was joined by director of photography Jakob Suess in his journey for new forms of visual expression. Heavily inspired by the cinema of the late 60s & early 70s (like Nicolas Roeg’s “Don’t look now” or Polanski’s “The Tenant”), they crafted a film that emanates not only the aesthetic feel, but also embraces the courageous spirit and the cinematic curiosity of that particular era in film history.
For THE GAME OF THINGS Fashion Film House Riese Farbaute teamed with Metrosafari Locations, both aiming to set new standards in forward thinking fashion film productions.
Best Esmod Production: Showroom Belgium at London Fashion Week by Guido Verelst and Dodi Espinosa
“Flanders Fashion Institute asked us to design a video installation to be featured during this event.
The video was shot entirely at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, which is currently closed for renovations until 2017. The video makes use of this unique location. Like the museum’s art pieces, the model, featuring pieces from the designers’ collection, is carefully wrapped, stored and transported to other destinations …”
