My Other Half – Short Film

07.10.2015

To celebrate our FIVE years of (still) working together, I made a short film with Mady and Monette for the launch of Kinfolk Magazine’s September Family Issue.

Although the stills project is still very much ongoing it was great to work together in sound and moving image, incorporating Mady and Monette’s impressive synchronicity, dancing skills as well as some of their thoughts on life.

Have a look here below, or here on the Kinfolk website. Also, here is an accompanying interview I made with Mady and Monette for the magazine.
