Pocket Motion Pictures has been fortunate enough to film at many major fashion events across the globe, but when we were asked to capture the iconic Victoria’s Secret show we knew to expect something spectacular. This was the first time the Angels’ runway show was to take place in the UK, and it was happening right on our office doorstep: at the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre.
10 Magazine asked us to film a series of quick, fun, intimate interviews with all the Angels. The added advantage – not that we needed one – was that we would be working with Balmain’s Creative Director, Oliver Rousteing, who would be interviewing the girls. He already knew many of the Angels well having worked with them in his own campaigns, so the Angels were all excited and enthusiastic to be interviewed by him.
We had incredible access too, thanks to 10 Magazine’s editor-in-chief Sophia Neophitou who is also the Creative Director for Victoria’s Secret.
We were also there filming for one of our regular clients – getthegloss.com. The shoot involved being backstage asking the girls for beauty tips and insights into their lives as Angels.
The Victoria’s Secret show really upped the ante on a regular fashion show mainly because of the incredible party atmosphere backstage as the models were about to walk onto the runway. As one of only a handful of video crews actually on the side of the stage, this short video really captures the show’s sense of fun and frolic:
Oliver Rousteing interviewing the Angels was another highlight. We filmed nearly all the girls, but these two below are our favourites:
We’ve now caught the VS show bug and can’t wait for the next one.
