Designing Change, a Short film

I am so proud to have worked with the brilliant duo – Suzy Amis Cameron and Brandon Hickman, to co-produce the short video, Designing Change.

This entire short focuses on Red Carpet Green Dress, the sustainable fashion campaign founded by Suzy Amis Cameron. We are officially on IMDB now too. Watch the video which includes my interviews with Dame Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Crawford, former Greenpeace Marketing Director, full credits after the jump. Read more…

From Chateau Marmont to Canary Islands

In 2015 I was cast by eco-artist, sculptor, marine conservationist and underwater photographer Jason deCaires Taylor; it was an experience to exceed all experiences and the piece is finally live…the Raft of Lampedusa tribute (that’s me, hands crossed at the front).

The motivation behind this piece of art is so important and could not be more pertinent today, as deCaires Taylor aims to address the problem of immigration through an interpretation of The Raft of the Medusa (French: Le Radeau de la Méduse), an oil painting of 1818–1819 by the French Romantic painter and lithographer Théodore Géricaultan (read more here). Jason deCaires Taylor is a British sculptor and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park – the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park and underwater museum – best known for installing site-specific underwater sculptures made from pH-neutral cement which develop into artificial coral reefs.  Situated off the west coast of Grenada in the West Indies, the park is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. Jason attended our Red Carpet Green Dress Pre-Oscar event at Chateau Marmont (video below); by sponsoring the campaign and dedicating his time to working with kids at MUSE School CA, he generally showed what an all round good guy he was.
