It’s always fascinating to get a glimpse into the world of creatives at work. Take the latest film from the team behind i-D’s new project, ‘Beautiful Collaborations’.  Alongside the stunning film proper, we’re treated to a documentary chronicling the making of the film that uncovers just how involved the process is.

The documentary includes behind the scenes footage and interviews with the creative team in an exclusive, never before seen look at how an i-D fashion film is actually made. Led by Mexican born fashion photographer and filmmaker duo, Santiago and Mauricio Sierra, ‘Beautiful Collaborations’ is a fashion film about how beauty and fashion has defined subcultures through the decades.

The film captures the intensity of different style eras by creating interpretations of the characters and atmospheres from pop to grunge; rave to glam. It’s an international collaboration with New York makeup artist Ralph Siciliano, and a cast of models and street stars transformed to represent the spirit of each age.

The captivating behind the scenes action reveals the attention to detail and tools required to create every aspect of the creative vision with every era having its own demands. The lighting and sets bring in bright lasers, fireworks and sparkling glitter; to real-life sets with carpets and posters; to warehouse spaces and urban backdrops. Then there’s the meticulous casting and choreography – you have to make sure punks don’t move like pop princesses after all. The make-up and of course the fashion. It’s amazing to see the team at work. Planning, painting, filming, pouting, posing, dressing, honing, dancing.

Technology takes its position in the line up too; in this case the team worked with the new HP Spectre x360 to support the production. Every element is deliberated over and calculated to match each era, but of course never in isolation and always with style. This is an i-D production after all.

Like all the most creative projects, the toil is hidden in the final vision. The end result emerges; beautiful, vibrant, slick and full of life.
