The Release is short Fashion Film created by Michelle to speak to a post-covid audience who are shell shocked after two years of being locked down and need a colourful, entertaining escape.
Covid has caused pain. We must give it a place to live that is not within us. Let it be devoured by building stronger connections. Let it live in art, fashion, dance and music.
We live in colour, we love in colour, we dream in colour.
We are the future post-COVID generation of survivors!
Interesting fact: The film was shot at Melrose House Museum, a stately mansion in Pretoria, South Africa where the peace treaty ending the Second Anglo-Boer War was signed on 31 May 1902. It is therefore a fitting symbol of Freedom and Release tied into the film.
