Let Your Hair Down by Godgift Emesi
Hair is a lot more than just locks. In order to explore the extent of multiculturalism within Melbourne and cities worldwide, this short film focuses on four people living in Melbourne and their personal experiences of navigating micro-aggressions to do with their hair. Godgift Emesi is a freelance videographer based in North London. Born in Nigeria, Godgift immigrated with her family to the UK at the age of 5 and has been living, studying and following her dreams of digital video content creation there ever since. Emesi hopes to develop her storyteller career as a versatile filmmaker into pieces of 'Buzzfeed and Vice Media'-like work that render visible the voices of those who, even in this modern age, are still not heard... as well as directing some cool RnB music videos along the way! CREDITS: Featuring - Joanna Walker - Sarah Funston - Lwam Hadera - Mich Tay Xi Xuan Producer - Sara Asgedom Director - Melissa Brasacchio Cinematographer - Godgift Emesi Supervising Producer - William Head Music - Ray Hori Thanks to SM Cosmetics and Monash Hair & Beauty This video project was completed as part of coursework requirements of ATS2983 Screen Project: From Film Theory to Digital Video Practice.

Wave Pulses, Video performance by Gislaine Costa Concept The performer sews a uterus and heart on her body, and initiates touching actions, followed by sinuous movements and poses that refer to archetypal images of the feminine. As these movements intensify, pearls appear that decorate the body and mark the passage of time. Between movements, there is interaction with a mask, which brings the sense of losing and revealing identity, especially to see the deep. The dance is inspired by the belly dance, of the old priestesses, gypsies and prostitutes, and from this sacred and profane fusion, the reconnection with the feminine power appears. In a cycle of death and rebirth, breaking free from taboos, violence and repression, in search of a cure and pleasure.

Patterns of Self / Short Fashion Film
Patterns of Self is a Vancouver Canada based editorial shoot illuminating both the sides of oneself; dark and light, black and white, masculine and feminine. The dichotomy of black and white was used in Patterns of Self through PatternNation's hand painted canvas garments and non-binary model Helen Marley’s expressive portrayal of both the fem and masc sides of their being. This editorial looks at the knowledge of self, love of self and understanding of self, these ideas are directly referenced in the image of Helen’s kiss with themselves. Creative direction Dosh Osholowu of Toronto member of Jungle3ribe brings his unique black and white esthetic into the mix and photographer Vaspaan Shroff from Mumbai specializes in surrealism, post-production, and animation. Makeup artist and Model team Lennox Campbell and Helen Marley often collaborate as they both play with concepts around gender and identity politics in their work, their ideas around the perception of self directly informed Patterns of Self. All of these elements are brought together byPatternNation’s mural, painted canvas garments and black and white jewelry to create a truly surrealist effect.

COLOURWORXX x PatternNation x FUUD x West Carolina
Brief Synopsis This film was created as part of an art installation and photo shoot brought together by Cydney Eva, founder of PatternNation and Cath Carver, founder of Colour Your City and Editor-in-Chief of COLOURWORXX, in collaboration with local fashion designers Fuud and West Carolina. It took place at The Cause in Tottenham, North London, with a focus on The Garage room - which had been designed by Antonis Papamichael with distinctive UV pink grids - inspired by gaming and CAD - as part of a spatial transformation project for Colour Your City. The space was further animated with floating sculptures known as Blobs made by PatternNation, creating a playful immersive installation. The art, fashion and dance collaboration brought together an amazing community of creatives, designers, models and performers. Exploring themes of movement, body positivity and spatial transformation through the design of the space, play with the blobs, bright neon colours and bold fashion. Embracing our body fully as a vessel for joy and creativity. Celebrating the fullness of potentiality, activated imagination, spatial fantasy, empowered self-expression, and infinite play with colour and form.
