Reblogged from No Zu - The actual moving picture that I wrote/shot a behind-the-scenes to, a few months back
‘Loving You Overtime’ video.
Kind of a sequinned sequel to ‘Emotion’, a story set in another part of the everyday. In this case it’s identical to where I live, not where most of us have spent small amounts of time as may be the case with Emotion. In the kind of place that I, and most Australians grew up, (the great suburban sprawl) the main accepted and promoted aesthetic is one of large indoor shopping centres, general plainness and uniformity. The reality, of course, is made up of so much (hidden?) diversity that it is not marketable, simple to stereotype or easy to put on TV (and get ratings). Preston IS burning.
Filmed in Preston and East Brunswick, Victoria, Australia 2012/2013.
Directed/filmed/edited by Jason Heller
Concept collaboration between Nicolaas Oogjes and Jason Heller
Main guys: Tony Tot and Ryder Jack Susman
Make-up: Daphne Shum and Angelica Lidgard
Thanks to everyone else that helped out (Maxine and Margarita!) and came out to the Abruzzo Club and other shooting.
