unveils short film (below)
& releases new album
‘YEAR OF THE FANCLUB’
on February 12th
Ginger Wildheart and Director Mark Haldor unveil a powerful and thought provoking short film to accompany ‘Don’t Lose Your Tail, Girl’ from Ginger’s forthcoming new album Year Of The Fanclub released on February 12th through the Round Records Records label.
Ginger Wildheart explains- ‘Don’t Lose Your Tail, Girl is a feminist song written by a man. I was brought up by strong women and had little positive male influence in my life in comparison. I think this gives me an unbiased view on the opposite sex, by which I mean it’s unaffected by the stereotypes supported in magazines aimed at both men and women.
In the end it’s a song about appreciating yourself, giving yourself a break, which seems harder for women in society.
I wanted Mark to film the movie as I know he has earned strong bonds with the actresses he works with. He also has an eye for beauty beyond heavy make up and posing, which is what a nine minute film really needs. Nine minutes of contorting females would be torturous to watch. He has captured personality and joy, as well as a darker side that is quite disturbing.
I think the film is a work of art, occasionally uncomfortable to watch, but with a lasting feeling of freedom. It’s a song about not losing your identity, and the film captures that in the natural beauty of the performances. ‘
Witness now the unpredictable 9 minute journey that is the ‘Don’t Lose Your Tail, Girl’ film
Director Mark Haldor wanted to “create a visual stimulus that would not only do the lyrics and eclectic sounds justice, but provoke a look at women, of all ages, races and backgrounds and what they go through in life, both positive and negative.
My intention was that everyone viewing should be able to resonate with at least one moment from it on a personal level. Whilst shot with many beautiful and talented actresses to tell several stories, the suggestion is that they could also be contrasting snapshots of just one character’s life, had she made different life choices.
It was important to me that there was also no definitive ending to this film or any of the stories told as I wanted people to be left wondering what happens to these characters next? Just as we do with people we know and have known in real life. A reminder for all to embrace each day and who we are because that’s all that truly matters.”
