Last year I spend a week in Toronto were Nicolai Nierman and me produced some films for iGNANT and Mercedes Benz. As a little side project we were visiting some interesting people around the city and shot little portraits of them. For our last video we met up with Reilly Hodgson who is running the brand NO FUN PRESS and the Fanzine Blood Of The Young over there. We had a fun day sneaking through Toronto and hang out with the nice guys of his crew. It was basically the perfect situation to shoot a portrait, where you instantly connect to the other person the totally trust you in what you are doing.
In postproduction I wanted the film to break out of the “boring” portrait structures. We wanted to connect the film to the aestehtics of their Fanzine and overall lifestyle and so we broke the linear structure through different kind of songs and the usage of OFF-Footage you normally wouldn’t take in. I like the result and for me it’s still fun to watch the video. Make sure to jump over to their Online-Shop and support Reilly and the Toronto fam. !
