Diary of an Edmonton model

Although this was shot in 2011, apparently, this just popped up on Vimeo the other day. Here is a short film about a day in the life of a model (Alexandra van Essen) living in Edmonton….sort of. ┬áNot all of the details are there. We don’t, for example, know what she ate for breakfast.

Shot in Black and White, there isn’t a whole lot of talking, or indeed a whole lot of action all together, in this film. But it is somewhat of a nice look at what it’s like behind the scenes in the high flying modelling world. I don’t necessarily think of high flying modelling world when I think of Edmonton, but I guess that is my own narrow, possibly stereotypical view of the city.
