In Jamaica, We Are Massiv shot a short film with the ultra talented Nile Saulter. 'Seasaw' the short film by Nile, is an eclectic piece that showcases the simplicity, spirit & artful-ness that translates into everything we do at Massiv.
KingstonStyle.com interview with the Director
Massiv is a clothing company based out of LA, how did you and Nate Massiv come to collaborate on this project in Kingston?
Well me and Nate have been good brejins for a while, and doing a fashion film is something we’d discussed before. He’s been coming to Jamaica for years and birthed the idea for the brand while here. I’ve always supported We Are Massiv and felt the time was right now to help rep it film wise. He agreed and we got the ball rolling immediately to plan the shoot. About a month after the initial conversation he flew down and we shot it in a day.
The young woman in the film emerges from the sea seemingly out of nowhere… is she a mermaid? What was the concept for this short fashion film?
That’s my sistren Cindy Wright. She’s beautiful and was great to work with. “Mermaid” is not quite the right word for what her character represents, but I’d say she’s “of the sea” in a metaphorical sense. The concept is loose, I wanted her to represent someone who’s on the outside and a little jaded. Also to show how the vibe of the brand mirrors her own sense of adventure, pulls her out of her shell. Her emergence from, and return to water represents a few other things that I’d rather leave open to interpretation for others.
