Kris Moyes' film 'City Limits' for fashion label Romance Was Born launches in Sydney

CITY-LIMITS.jpgLast night director Kris Moyes, screened 'City Limits', a short film launching the Romance Was Born, Autumn Winter 2010 range, to a packed theatre at the Dendy Newtown.

Having worked with Romance Was Born on two music videos for Architecture in Helsinki and Softlightes, Romance Was Born approached Moyes to make 'something' that featured their Autumn Winter 2010 range. Moyes' response: a film, which in his words is "a short ridiculous story about a smart, hot, rich tyrant named Katherine Bowden who goes on a killing spree of sweet revenge once she hears that her egg headed financial adviser has drained all her savings. She's a killer and she's cooler than the other side of the pillow".
Bowden is played by the Croatian model Tanja G. Romance Was Born suggested Tanya G for the role, having just worked with her on their latest print campaign and Moyes admits to having his initial reservations about casting her. But, after screen testing Tanya he described her as "Incredible and perfect for the role. A strange combination of the costumes and her character tonally pushed the film in a completely different and unexpected direction".

The crew includes cinematographer Danny Rulhmann (Little Fish) and 1st AD Deb Antoniou (Where The Wild Things Are). The music was composed by Alex Akers, Rohan Bell-Towers (Bamboo Nights), Kim Moyes (The Presets) and Myles Heskett and Chris Ross (ex Wolfmother).

The source of the problem is that commercial shorts lack an audience and so dissolve into being so characterless and vacant. Sorry to be critical. However, a strong narrative would have made this promotion piece much more watchable.
