Director and photographer Petra Collins created a retro fantasy world for her short film dedicated to Gucci Eyewear SS17. Let’s fly away to this fascinating world together!
What happens, if two children have to stay at Granny’s living room on a boring afternoon, and she falls asleep while watching TV? Well, according to the Canadian (half-Hungarian) photographer and director, Petra Collins, this is the beginning of the fun for them. They swipe Granny’s old eyeglasses, fit it on and find themselves in a magical dream world immediately.
Petra Collins’ two little cousins can be seen as the child characters of the video, and the artist says she wanted to make this film here in Hungary. So she managed to do it, with Hungarian staff and also some Hungarian words in the video. She also used her childhood memories and the beauty of rural landscapes and interiors of the well-known Gellért Bath.
The short film, dedicated to Gucci’s Spring Summer 2017 eyewear collection is a surreal voyage of two kids discovering the wonderful retro world of the rural Hungary and of course the very contemporary Gucci glasses and dress designs by Alessandro Michele.
In our opinion, the music was a very good choice, too – it reminds us a little bit to the popular TV series “Stranger Things” so it makes the video a little bit more mysterious for us.
