Running out of time – Dior in Video by Dean Freeman
Dean Freeman, director and photographer, introduces Dior Couture, in the short fashion film Running out of time. Produced by Ridley Scott and Associates, the film depicts a young women running through the streets of Los Angeles dressed in Dior Couture.
The film leaves much to the imagination as sirens are heard in the background indicating that she is running from something but does not give away exactly what it is.
The girl played by model Amanda Viola, walks into a big house for what seems like refuge. Whilst in the house she explores each area, running her hand over books, playing with a silver tea set and just seems to be playfully comforted by the contents of the house. All the while we are given a view of the Dior gown and the actress herself stares at the gown in the mirror a few times.
She continues to the bedroom where she undresses and playfully curls on the bed in her charcoal bodysuit. Thereafter she peruses the wardrobe and finds a vintage dress, hat and boots. Once again the girl leaves the house and is on the run. Running away from whatever is after her.
Throwing off the hat, she runs through canyons and a forest where she eventually finds freedom on top of the Hollywood Hills during sunset.
The film has indeed cast an air of intrigue and leaves you wanting more and wondering what Dior is up to.
