Solace | Surf Documentary
Solace | Surf Documentary Directing and shooting: Giorgio Ghiotto Editing and Color: Adriano Accardo “Solace” is a short documentary about how surfing can change someone’ s life. A surfer called Andry, 70, keeps his energy and enthusiasm for life through his love of the sport. He used to live in London, caught up in an alienating urban routine until he was introduced to the surfing world by his friend Dany. Now every time he gets out on the water, like in a ritual, he feels reborn, making him optimistic about life.
"El Viaje" (The Journey) - A Fashion Project by JC Candanedo
Freelance Photographer, JC Candanedo, explores key issues including human rights, mental health and identity to influence his commercial work in fashion, beauty and portraiture. We go on-set and behind the scenes at JC's latest project, "El Viaje" (The Journey), to talk about his concept, the importance of a creative team and why collaborations are essential for every creative freelancer. “The concept of the shoot came from a conversation that we were having one day about how all the people involved in this shoot are either first, second or third-generation migrants.” “We thought about our migration journeys and the migration journey of our families and how we carry those migration journeys on ourselves - they come in the shape of accents, skin tones, facial features or traditions. We thought that clothes as well have some sort of journey, as they carry with them the journeys of the people that have worn them in the past. We wanted to link those two ideas into one concept that we called El Viaje." JC's shoot team is made up of long-time collaborators who he’d worked with on numerous occasions in the past. He met makeup artist Fabiola, for example, at a Freelancer Club event a few years ago and has been test shooting with her ever since. “I’m working with a group of creatives, some of whom I’ve known for years. Rachel Williamson, for instance, the hairstylist, I met her at another test shoot seven or eight years ago. The makeup artist, Fabiola Bastianelli, I met at a party that the freelancer club threw six or seven years ago.” JC's creative team also included Freelancer Club member and Assistant Photographer Charlotte Dormoy, Fashion Stylist Juliet Herrera and Model Sarah Eng.
