'My Weekend with Miss Banbury Cross' for Men's Life

Limey's Graeme Joyce Shoots New Short Film

 

LIMEY Director/Photographer Graeme Joyce has shot an incredibly unique one-minute short film for U.K. based “Men’s File,” www.mensfile.com, a magazine focused on tracing the “roots of style in men's clothing, architecture, car, and motorbike design”. The one-minute short film, featuring burlesque dancer Miss Banbury Cross, accompanies the magazine’s most recent issue 08.

“’My Weekend With Miss Banbury Cross’ is an exquisite film,” says LIMEY Owner/EP Andrew Denyer. “Easy on the eye and with beautiful imagery, the film shows the emotion and ardor that Graeme likes to bring to his commercial work.”
 
The film was conceptualized by “Men’s File” Editor-at-Large, Matt Hind, who enjoys a strong working relationship with Graeme. “I had come up with an idea for a fashion story for Issue 08's focus on Denim based on John Huston's 'The Misfits,’ [starring Marilyn Monroe],” explains Hind. “Miss Banbury Cross, a British burlesque dancer of note, came out to Los Angeles for the [photo] shoot and we decided to make a small film about her time there. Graeme was the perfect Director to work with on a project like this. He is very much a contemporary filmmaker, but also has great classic instincts and a subtle feel for light. It was very important for the film to be intimate and sympathetic, not over produced. Graeme had a very sensitive approach. By shooting 16 mm on the Bolex and essentially being together for a few days, we were able to produce something that feels home-made, authentic and above all, fun.”
 
“I’ve known Matt for many years”, adds LIMEY’s Graeme Joyce. “When this opportunity came up to shoot a short film for the magazine’s web site, it was a great way for Matt and I to collaborate, something we’ve often talked about. I wanted the film to play like a love letter so we decided on utilizing the romantic nature of 16mm film. As ‘Men’s File’ is a heritage magazine that traces the roots of style, I decided to shoot with a Bolex H16 camera for the inherent vintage feel the camera provides, a texture that suits not only the magazine’s aesthetic but also Miss Banbury Cross, her essence, look and performance.”
 
“One of the biggest challenges when working in film is cutting through the endless production layers and portraying a narrative that engages emotionally,” concludes Hind. “Graeme's instinct and intelligent approach enabled us to create something uncluttered and simply stunning.”
