In February we were lucky enough to have premiered Vancouver-based photographer Megan-Magdalena Bourne’s first short film. Now we have the pleasure of premiering her second, SOFT PARADISE.
“Soft Paradise is the love child between myself and Juliann McCandless. I’ve known her for almost a decade but we had never shot together before. We both wanted to channel the sadness and the beauty from The Virgin Suicides. It was nice shooting with her sister too – they are so comfortable together. Mixing baby pinks and blues and everything ‘feminine’, but highlighting the emptiness of it all. Yes, we are presenting 2 beautiful, thin, white females in very little clothing, but it’s not sexual and it’s not ‘cute and nice’ – it’s sad. They’re bored and disconnected. Kyle Schick did an amazing job on the music too. I think his choices really highlight what we were going for.” – Megan-Magdalena Bourne
