TOPMAN’s Open Shoot projects are always a hit. Focused on joining music artists and creatives with their fans and TOPMAN audiences, Open Shoot creates new and exciting creative projects focused on style and music. For their third instalment, TOPMAN partnered up with Game of Thrones star and singer Raleigh Ritchie. Taking inspiration from his tune “Cowards”, which will be rearranged and reworked for the film’s score, Ritchie is creating, scoring, directing AND starring in his short film with the help of fans and TOPMAN audiences. TOPMAN not only showcases the talent and vision of the artists, but also the originality of their fans. It’s almost too good to be true, and on top of Ritchie’s short film, we’ll be getting a series of behind-the-scenes videos to see the creative process. Total win.
The 6 “making of” videos created for fans and TOPMAN audiences will be made out of footage from the filming of the fan-based interactive project, which was filmed between 22-29 June. These videos will give you exclusive behind-the-scenes access and in depth conversations with Ritchie and the collaborators about the creative and production processes. This is TOPMAN’s most creative and ambitious Open Shoot to date, so expect lots of interesting and exciting footage of the creation of the film.
The short itself will premiere in August, with Raleigh Ritchie introducing the project to fans and contributors who followed and collaborated with him to create it, and it all forms part of the series of collaborative videos that TOPMAN TV will be treating us to this summer. We can’t wait to see it.
