Filmtraits chose Collect magazine as our latest project because we love the magazine, it's content and design but also it is a celebration of the people and places in your community. Collect is a small independently published magazine which came about through a collaboration between freelance journalists, photographers and designers from Adelaide, South Australia. It talks about the world and the local neighbourhood, it's a big ask but they get the balance right. This publishing team fits very much with our philosophy of telling stories about "persons of interest".
Collect magazine can be found at independent 'corner stores' around Adelaide but also in like minded stores around the world. Editor in Chief of Monocle magazine, Tyler Brûlé, discovered Collect in the 'Papercut' store in Stockholm, he liked what he saw, and it's now stocked in Monocle stores worldwide.
Filmtraits would like to thank Joshua Fanning, Adam Johnson, Farrin Foster and Sven Kovac of Collect for their assistance.
We would also like to thank all the businesses who helped with making this film including, Coffee Branch, Express Colour, Hawker Street Cafe, One Small Room, Red Door Bakery, Soto's Fish Shop, The Corner Store on Semaphore, The Stranded Store and Three Card Trick.
