LEGENDARY

 

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to pitch on this project. As you might have gathered from the call, this is an area we're hugely passionate about - and want to make sure that we deliver something which feels authentic and engaging, bringing the wealth of artistry of vogue dance to a new audience while still respecting the culture first and foremost. As producers we have worked with the vogue community on multiple projects, for FKA twigs, Nike, Shiseido and also running a London Vogue Ball in collaboration with Red Bull.

Below are 4 directors we feel are the most pertinent to the brief, either one of these options would be guided by us in terms of finding the right team to create something authentic yet heightened; stylists, choreographers (if needed), cinematographers which we feel will answer the brief of delivering engaging, artfully stylised films which will generate interest and intrigue to the Legendary series.

Creative Polymath FKA twigs has embraced multi-faceted areas of creative expression regardless of the medium. Shaping enigmatic video portraits to accompany her debut releases, twigs has consistently kept a hand in the creative direction of her visual work through co-directing, and eventually directing work of her own. FKA twigs has been instrumental in the second wave of Vogue resurgence, bringing the art form into prominence through her videos and live performances to a new generation of vogue fans. 

First directing and starring in a content piece for Google Glass, twigs has continued this path by directing work for Nike 'Believe In More' , Shiseido, and Calvin Klein, as well as her own music videos and performance works - 2019 saw the launch of her much anticipated Album 'Magdalene'.
