THIS MUST BE THE ONLY FANTASY…a short film.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, mostly because we get busy over here.  REALLY busy.  And because, frankly, shit happens.  Big things take place and instead of writing about it, you retreat and decide that living it is the only way to get through to the other side.  You decide that caring about the things that seem to matter when you do what we do: who shot what big editorial, who booked that big campaign, being seen at that magazine party, what photographer is dating which models, selfies, instavids, “tag me” AAAAAGH!!! – it can all get so fucking exhausting!!!  So we retreat, withdraw from it all for the opportunity to get back to who we are.  We have to give ourselves that much so that we can come back with a fresh outlook and a new set of survival skills to take on each day.

I’ve been plugging away at the new Summer issue of PhotogenicsMAG, which is set to release tomorrow, but in the meantime I wanted to share this short film which I find symbolically appropriate for the way a lot of people are feeling around me.  The Journey, the Heroine, the Bad Boys, the Villain, the Triumph, and let’s face it – everyone wants to ride that unicorn through the streets of LA.  So, enjoy this extremely well-done short by RODARTE and TODD COLE featuring our rising star, DAKOTA with music by one of my all time favorite bands, BEACH HOUSE.
