SHORT FILM SYNOPSIS:
Siobhan chose film as the medium to provide the most interesting vehicle to show her work, although the film is not predominately a product advertisement, rather a way to portray the philosophy of the brand in all its facets.
Hans Christian Andersons story of “The Princess and the Pea” was the starting point of this project and developed into a mesmerizing and fantastical story by collaboration with young up and coming director Camilla Robinson. The fairy tale tells of a young Prince who is looking all over the world for his perfect princess. He will endure many princesses before he finds the REAL princess with the help, or maybe hindrance of his mother the Queen.
