David Knight - 5th Dec 2012

It's strange, it's glamourous, and it'll have you on tenderhooks... AlexandLiane directed a cult classic video for Tiga's Shoes a couple of years ago. Now the iconoclastic Canadian DJ and boy/girl directing outfit get back together in Berlin for another ultra-cool and slightly bizarre visualisation of Plush - populated with more models in cutting edge fashion, and this time, Tiga himself. It is, in short, a live still shot – and you just have to watch and wait to see who is going to break first. It was filmed on a single roll of 35mm film - with cinematography by Simon Chaudoir – following a number of rehearsals. "We don't really want to dissect the video," say AlexandLiane. "It is what it is – but we would say that it is definitely an exercise in patience for everyone involved!" It certainly makes modelling look like a proper job. And watch out for the fly...
