Hanging out on a movie set? Why not! A while ago, I was invited by Oona to come check out the making of the movie &Me in Brussels. Belgian brand Essentiel is involved in this project, hence the fashion connection. &Me is a romantic comedy about three loners from Sitges, Berlin and Amsterdam who end up in Brussels. The movie will be released in 2013, so if you go and see it, be sure to keep an eye out on the Essentiel pieces in the wardrobe. As a fan of the brand, and always curious to see what goes on behind the scenes (apparently, a lot of set-rebuilding and waiting), I took my beloved camera with me and snapped away a couple of shots of the set, actors and Essentiel clothes. But not too much, since you have to be invisible and quiet when they are filming.
Interesting piece of trivia: a big piece of the wardrobe got stolen out of the truck when the crew was filming at night in Brussels. Not fun (to say the least) for the crew. Can’t help but wonder where those stolen clothes will end up… Naughty thieves!
