“I had this idea of shooting Jess & Tatiana in this old Victorian mansion in Fresnaye (a fancy suburb in Cape Town) – It’s currently for sale, so it’s totally empty inside. We threw our shit on the floor & began to play & mess around with clothes & ideas. Jess brought the kink stuff, Tatiana brought the flowy, delicate dresses & we decided to mix & match & see where we’d go from there. We spent the evening listening to some playlist Spotify made for me & eating butternut & feta salad. We hadn’t molded a concept yet, but we knew we wanted to make something morbidly beautiful.
After looking at my film scans a lot of ideas came to mind. I guess the contrast between the soft, angelic shots juxtaposed against the more stranger images sparked an idea of the title ‘24hr Daydream’. I concluded that this story plays on the idea of fantasy & daydreaming. The softer shots depict a real life scenario, contrasted with the weirder ones which are the daydreams, focusing on kink, fetish & fantasy.”
