The 5 looks I shot were customized to the designers collections and her inspiration of the Chinese Zodiac.

I  translated Jade’s five collections into the natural elements of fire, water, earth, metal and wood and found ways to connect the stories in Jade’s collection, with looks evolved with Mua: Seevon Chau and model Danni Wang on set.Screen shot 2013-02-13 at 7.24.16 PM

Her unique approach to East/West cultural fusion, and the upcoming celebration of the year of the snake inspired our whole team.: The B&W “Snake” photos were together as a collaboration with Obscure Object Films, which used the photos as a part of their Fashion film as well.

Obscure Object Films is very excited to be in production on jewelry designers, Langoliers, short film for their upcoming RED collection. Stephen Dirkes created a story that draws on many of Zon and Pamela’s design influences putting together the collection as varied as Karl Jung’s “Red Book” and 19th Century occultism to Alchemy, the principle location in Stephen’s tale for Langoliers is set in a 19th Century Alchemist’s laboratory.

Director Stephen Dirkes & filmmaker Viktor Vokjan

A fantastic art dept. was assembled to create our set, fabricate puppets, construct props, design spinning, animatable devices, etc, etc ,etc., with elements largely sourced from Stephen & artist Joel Voisard’s personal collection of tables, lenses, gears, 1930’s erector sets.

Designer’s Pamela Liou & Zon Chu with Caroline Pam and Ioana Popescu

Caroline Pham

Art Director, Caroline Pham coordinated the effort and created beautiful design elements such as custom “wallpaper” stamps to integrate and unify the elements we were working with to the Langoliers collection.

Designer Zon CHU

Ioana Popescu

Each of the 4 “props” or tables and stands on set functions as an individual set or world in miniature as the story takes us on a journey in stop motion animation through the Alchemist’s process of turning jewelry into magic.

Ioana Popescu perfecting the Orrery design

Not only required to look good in super-zoomed-in macro detail, but each prop had unique animation requirements as well. Ioana, Jeff, Pamela and Zon all have jewelry making backgrounds that made the cutting, welding, grinding, fitting, etc possible, Go Team!
