Les Nouvelles: A Short Film Collaboration
Was that right, did we really say film collaboration?  Yes! From the mighty seed of inspired conversation between us gals at the studio sprouted the makings of a passion project that we are so excited to share with you all. Devon, our studio assistant and email mistress extraordinaire, also happens to be an actor here in France. Rodellee, before founding AV, collected vintage and antiques in Los Angeles and worked on sets for fashion films and photo shoots as a stylist. Naturally, together we found ourselves dreaming of a way to bring life to a simple story—a story about the beauty in life's little pleasures, the preparations one makes to welcome a new season, and the delicate nature of rekindling old friendships. While the video is still being edited, we wanted to share some photos from being on set and behind the scenes of our short film, Pages From November. Enjoy!

We got to storyboarding our concept and then began working on setting the scene. It was so much fun decorating the house, in which our characters would spend the majority of the story, with an assortment of homewares and accoutrements foraged from our personal antique collections. We picked the Sessile Dress and the With Fondness Locket from the shop for our protagonist to wear.
