Graft’s new signing Bexy Cameron arrives in sensational style directing her new film for British denim brand, Lee Cooper. The AW19 campaign titled ‘True London Blues’ features contemporary dancer Renee Stewart and Peaky Blinder’s Harry Kirton floating over London’s rooftops. And if that wasn’t enough, the music is scored and performed by the iconic Boy George. Watch here
Bexy’s filmmaking spans the realm of art, fashion and music with a stellar roster of leading brands under her belt. Including Nike, Airbnb, Adidas, Fila, YouTube, Google, and Channel 4. This is Bexy’s second campaign for Lee Cooper and proof of her artistic talents.
From shooting for Fila on F1 racecourses in Valencia to shutting down the Louvre for 24 hours for Airbnb, to her up and coming work in the fields of Indonesia for Unilever, we are excited to see where Bexys directing takes her next.
This campaign was both challenging and rewarding – Renee and Harry really pushed themselves to get what we needed – emotionality as well as psychically. From leaping through the air on trampolines for hours on end, to diving off of walls 6 stories up – it was a pretty epic shoot.
It’s a gift when you are able to not only direct, but also conceptualise what you direct – and that what this job was a total gift. Being able to see something through from the first sketch or thought to seeing it on the screen is rare.
It was important that this spot not only to have artistic and emotional qualities, it also needed to have meaning and authentic ties to Lee Coopers heritage – which is why we shot on the Truman Brewery. The piece is not only a love affair between our protagonists but also London itself.
