This is quite a very moving portrait of fashion designer Henry Holland. Created by Clive Booth in collaboration with Nick Knight and SHOWstudios. This is part of a series of intimate fashion designers Hollands is the first.. In it we hear Holland's story. How he grew up outside Manchester. Endured a childhood that saw in it an early parental divorce and remarriage, as well as an ugly time at school, being bullied for being gay. And yet, Holland tells us, he used that last experience to become who he is today—a designer at the forefront of fashion.
At one point, Holland tells us his worst quality is that his attention span is “very short.” Unfortunately so is mine. And a seven minute plus film needs a cut down, no matter how lovingly and interestingly shot it may have been.
Speaking of, this film is also a way for SHOWstudio to try out and showcase new innovations in filming technique. Clive Booth shot this one for 4K resolution, which is trickier than HD. It does look stunning and even beautiful. If you go to SHOWstudios site, you can learn about the process.
