Fashion Promotional Videos
I'd like to know more about the world of fashion PV's...is there a big market for them, do many brands use them? Any that have earned recognition? Who makes them? Their uses?

People close to me are involved in creating these--gorgeous--and I think it's got exciting potential as a medium for expressing fashion...like fashion photography but with movement and music

Any info in this area is appreciated...

Anybody...?

I had never heard of them before seeing my friends make these, so I was wondering if it's still a new thing?

Hee hee, thanks guys, I guess that answers my question! :p

Well, they're videos that are kind of like a cross between magazine editorials and music videos...they have atmosphere, a loose story...maybe about 20 min. long. The ones I know are for projecting in stores/ display windows and for promotional DVD's...

I wonder why they're not used more often...I guess because there isn't much money to be made out of them directly? I just thought artistic video is such a good medium for showing fashion.

well, now i take back what i said about the prada mini-movie...as that was in fact a CM when i suppose these fashion PVs are more focused on telling a story about the *clothes*..?

Hi Mishahoi!

I've never seen the Prada, sounds interesting. Well, the only ones I *know* about are all "teeny" brands...Untitled (Shibuya Mark City, basement) Me Jane (109) and Luca (Lumine Shinjuku). The Luca one is actually really gorgeous and artistically done, black and white, and with a dreamy feel, great location, camerawork and editing. I don't know if they still have it in their stores, I think it was "kikan gentei".... what a waste. I can PM you with more info.

please do! it sounds like a wonderful idea... can definitely give a stronger impression than just a still photograph...although much more expensive and harder work!
