Arlo Parks "I’ve always wanted to shoot by the sea & capture the power of nature, the interesting local characters & the architecture of seaside towns. I wanted this intersection of elegance & comfort. Having everything from dark blue tailored suits to vibrant red cardigans created a visual world for the story to operate within. Making this made me feel like I really expanded my horizons as an artist & having Tom Dream co-directing made me feel so supported & creatively free. I learnt that no idea is a bad idea & that preparation is key.”
