AESME FLOWERS LONDON

dawn to dusk | a short film

AESMEComment

Early in September photographer and film-maker Katy Lawrence made a short, day-in-the-life-of film of us working on an autumnal project. It's a beautiful little snap-shot of the prettiest, most pleasurable parts of our lives and work - not a bit of bucket bleaching in sight, no thorn splinters or traffic jam frustration, just a good old dose of flowers and fine weather.

She kicks off the story early morning in London as Jesse leaves home and pootles across town over Richmond Bridge to mine for some creative breakfast prepping over sketches and eggs. We pack up our props and gear and then head down the M3 to Hampshire where we select flowers from the cutting garden, forage from the surrounding hedgerows and create a wild, sculptural arch installation, shooting just as dusk falls over the cornfield. This was such a fun creative collaboration (I blogged more about it back in September here). Thank you to Katy for her inimitable eye and direction and also to Jim Barne, for composing the music.

For best results set to watch in 1080p. (There is a little settings button on the left hand corner of the screen, click this and select quality and change it to 1080p - if it’s not already in that format.) 

We hope you enjoy it!
