A model enters the information superhighway by running the Deluxe Lounge program. The computer shows her all the capabilities of the future. A vaporwave/nostalgic-inspired film, with inspiration from early 90s Miami and dreamlike versions of family computer rooms.

Loungey. Nostalgic. Vivid. 


I want to touch on the feel of a real-life version of 3D art from the 90s, mixed with cool colours. The name takes itself from a lot of those software programs (in this case Deluxe Paint VI), so this is sort of touching on that era when computers/the internet were beginning to be marketed for mass consumers, and the unknown of it was still prominent.


The shoot was an expansion of a traditional photo shoot into a cinematic experience.
