behind the seams.

The day I shot the Storyland Vintage lookbook was as fun as the video suggests. I decided to share some behind the seams(har har) photos and some fun facts!

at IKEA(these scenes were cut out of the video because I didn’t have the room for them but they will be used in a future video!):

my cinnamon bun almost slipped out of my hand I was very scared

good job cameramom!
tired and windblown from the long day but pleased with the results

beach scenes:

some facts from the video:
1. The diner I shot at is the diner I grew up going to in my hometown on Long Island and Jones Beach is the beach I grew up going to since I was like 1 years old.
2. The Elvis song I chose on the jukebox is actually one of my favorites and happened to be song choice 11(of course).
3. The opening background where I have the logo was a happy accident, the camera was rolling for almost the entire trip from the diner to the next location and it just so happens to be the Storyland Vintage color scheme(probably a reflection of some sort from my aqua colored phone case but still very cool!).
4. I have a vintage postcard from the 1950’s of the swimming pool at Jones Beach so when I’m peering over the empty/unused pool area I am imaging it the way it was.
5. I shot an entire scene playing around at IKEA(I call it my homeland because I am of Swedish decent and that’s as close as I can get to my Swedish culture) but I had to cut it all out because it was too much:(
6. I really wanted to use another Girls song but for inappropriate language and length purposes I went with this song, Summertime. I think it was a great compromise and probably turned out better than the alternative.
7. 0:41 reference to my Pop Pop. 4:54 thinking of someone special. 5:37 was thinking of a scene in one of my favorite movies, Elizabethtown.
8. When the couple is walking towards the camera on the boardwalk I had my hand open and out free but the wind blocked my hand with the skirt…the wind held my hand.
9. There were a few things I wanted to accomplish with this video a)first off an A on my final project, b)I wanted the viewer to get a glimpse into my vision of Storyland Vintage, c)I wanted SV fans to get a taste of who I am! I only hope it inspires its audience to take life less seriously, to go outside and play or inspired to check out Storyland Vintage :)
10. The white vintage dress and crop top and skirt playsuit will be available in the Storyland Vintage shop!
11. The water was very cold…I didn’t care.

Watch the video!
