In early April 2012 I wrote a treatment for a high concept fashion film to help launch the fashion label Morris Janks. Rather than create the stereotypical "pretty-dresses-on-celebrities" idea, I decided to write a story about love, loss, and a magnificent struggle to create the ultimate masterpiece.
My partners in crime Benjamin Shepherd and Luke Tierney undertook this epic journey with me, and put together a fabulous cast and crew to create this vision.
With the amazing and creepy performance of Cass Cumerford, and the exquisite beauty and poise of Annabella Barber; we were able to capture a dark and gothic tale with a slice of tongue-in-cheek humour.
This film represents the fruits of our labour.
