Colonel Blimp: YSL films

Sarah Chatfield and Chris Sweeney have created a series of atmospheric films to promote ysl’s spring/summer 2009 men’s collection

The films are a continuation of Chatfield and Sweeney’s work for the fashion brand earlier this year, when they created a film for the autumn/winter men’s collection that was presented  instead of a traditional catwork show during the Paris Fashion Week.

The website contains seven films, which are unusually displayed on the site in portrait format, rather than the typical horizontal style we are used to. The films utilise a range range of different effects but are all very beautiful and stylish, natch.

Directors: Sarah Chatfield, Chris Sweeney
Post-production: Smoke and Mirrors

Creative Futures Bursary Project: Kate Moross

For almost 20 years, Creative Review has been encouraging the next generation of talented creatives through our annual Creative Futures scheme in which we celebrate the promise of a selection of emerging talent in visual communications.
This year’s crop of Futures were selected by the CR editorial team – our only criteria were to find indiv­iduals or teams who we feel have an extremely bright future ahead of them and who are indicative of the future direction of the industry.

We invited everyone coming along to the talks to bring a piece of work with them – an image, some text, even a piece of music. We then asked each of our Futures to produce a new piece of work responding to the experience of being selected for the scheme, giving their talk and to the work brought along. These projects were funded by a bursary provided to each Future by CR and PlayStation. Over the next week or so we are posting up the resulting pieces of work plus documentaries on each Future, made for us by Fallon. Here are two new pieces of work by Kate Moross…
