SING FOR THE TREES (2022)

SHORT FILM, COMMISSION


CLIENT, UNTITLED NINE.


SING FOR THE TREES IS A FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FASHION FILM FOR HIGH STREETWEAR CLOTHING COMPANY UNTITLED NINE'S DEBUT COLLECTION OF PAINTED AND RECONSTRUCTED DENIM.

THE FILM SHOWCASES DESIGNERS BREEZE YUN AND TYLER BASA AS THEY BUILD A METAL TREE INSTALLATION TO SHOWCASE THE VIBRANT COLLECTION BETWEEN FOUR WHITE CONCRETE WALLS. ACCOMPANIED BY A KOREAN NARRATION PERFORMED BY YUN, THE SHORT FILM IS A SUBTLE EXPLORATION OF WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE, CREATE, AND EXPRESS IN A NATURAL WORLD WHERE EVERYONE ELSE IS STRUGGLING TO GET THEIR OWN IDEAS ACROSS ALL AT ONCE.

"WHEN SOMEONE SHOUTS OUT LOUD TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES, IT OFTEN BECOMES JUST A NOISE."

THE FILM WAS WRITTEN, DIRECTED, PHOTOGRAPHED, AND EDITED BY 22-YEAR-OLD AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER RYAN HENRY KNIGHT. THIS IS THE FILMMAKER'S SIXTH DIRECTED FASHION FILM AFTER DIRECTING BAFTA FESTIVAL SELECTED, SILENCE IS BLACK AND WHITE, AT AGE 19.
