Following the release of Kreuzberg, a documentary of the Berlin neighborhood as seen through the eyes of Aaron Rose, we bring you Fake Love. For his second film, Rose employed complete creative freedom to experiment with the high-definition camera on his iPhone 4 to create a teen soap opera.
Filmed in the Echo Park and Silverlake neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Fake Love follows a gang of girls, one whom believes that “fake love” is more exciting than true love. Choosing to feature real people that he felt could best orchestrate a scenario that speaks to the youth of today, Rose called upon a cast of friends comprised of musicians, poets, writers, photographers and artists living in Los Angeles. According to Rose, “They didn’t really have to act because they are such amazing personalities.” Truly a tribute to teen soap operas, a genre he finds both mystifying and exciting, Rose believes that American television “is the new avant-garde cinema.”
Rose incorporated the use of a tripod for more controlled filming; he affixed an Incase Slider Case to the tripod with a “T” bracket. To assist in capturing the dramatic feel of a soap opera, Rose also filmed with a Zacuto Z-grip and Spider Dolly.
The three-part series by Rose showcases the way his creative mind harnesses the capabilities of iPhone 4 to create an inspired visual experience that engages viewers. Be sure to bookmark the Aaron Rose page; following Kreuzberg and Fake Love, a final film and photo essay by Rose will close the series on November 30.
