WE ARE CREATIVE presents a coming-of-age romantic fashion film by Director THAYSEN c/o WE ARE CREATIVE here on GoSee, stylist Gavin Mikey Collins and designer Blünke. “Lonely Cowboy follows a forlorn Romeo who roams the night in search of love and finds it in the arms of Romie. Once hitched, they gather up their ride-or-die companions – cow-boys, cow-girls and cow-thems one and all – and head off into the wild wearing fantastical, frothy creations by Blünke.”
BLUENKE on the film in an interview with Coeval mag : “Together the three of us conceptualized and worked on producing a fashion film that could exist as a love letter, as my ode to the wild Wild West. My Lonely Cowboy Collection, a take on a very kitschy western film, full of gay love, queerness, unrequited love, friendship and loneliness. A Shakespeare moment “where two Romeos find love in a whirlwind romance in the middle of nowhere. Literally finding love in a hopeless place.”
Maxime Thaysen is a Cape Town-based director, with a lust for storytelling within the realms of fashion, romance, and the occasional dash of comedy – while constantly pushing for a strong, fresh aesthetic. After graduating from film school, Maxime entered the professional motion picture arena in 2011 by working as creative researcher for South Africa’s top-tier TVC directors. Transitioning in 2015 to conceptualizing and producing digital content, Maxime hustled as a one-woman-band, working on every discipline per project, having had the privilege of bringing ideas to life for brands like Sailor Jerry, Jagermeister, Jameson, Pichulik and platforms like Hunger magazine and Chips! Shortly after joining the We Are family, we assisted Maxime in producing her directorial debut – Lonely Cowboy, which went on to get listed as an official selection for 2019’s Bokeh Film Festival.
