Making of MINO - Act! Cut! Play!


Act! Cut! Play! is an interdisciplinary talent development project with the ambition to take the quality of fashion films to a higher level. In the context of this project three fashion films were produced. 

MINO is the fourth film that resulted out of one of the workshops During these workshops three teams were formed and challenged to present a concept for a fashion film. The winning team consists of Nora Ramakers, Rosanne Groenendijk, Caz Egelie and Sterre Troquay. Together with Daniel van Hauten they have developed MINO.

MINO premiered during FASHIONCLASH Fashion Film Festival in Maastricht in November 2017.

Act! Cut! Play!

Three teams existing of a designer, theatre maker, and filmmaker from either the Netherlands or Flanders, were challenged to work together to investigate the possibilities and boundaries of their disciplines and the provided ‘format’ of the fashion film. With the incorporation of a theatre maker, the three teams were challenged to make the narrative an important element within the films.
