We have been really digging Alice's Music before we conceptualized Beautiful Blood Magazine. It was almost 4 weeks before we were going to print, we wished of her to be the face of Vol.1. BBTV has created its first cover with Alice, seen pure and real, shot by Jonathan Kope is an absolute miracle. When we got a yes from Alice's manager for this opportunity, we decided to choose the right team to shoot this story in Cape Town and it took us only 8 days to bring this to life.
Written by Umer R. The feature completely vows her true self. When we received the selection from JK it was an eye candy for us and we went just full of smiles. After rounds of prints for the cover option and opinions from our friends we chose the purest portraits of her. BBTV is now officially live at beautifulblood.tv and open for online submissions and AW print submissions. We are looking forward for the upcoming stories and issues.
We are 6 months down the road after we launched Beautiful Blood Magazine, the No.4 Issue really sets the tone and the meaning behind the magazine. However, diversity is such a big topic and we cannot give it justice by doing just one story or a piece on it so we decided to celebrate it with one main story followed by a series of online cover stories. Thanks to all the contributing artists for making this happen.

A new story shot by the Wolfpack (Mann, Toni Malt, Claire Carruthers & Keanoush Da Rosa) is out in the print issue of Vogue Arabia October. The multilayered styled story shot by Mann is done in the classic lighting mood with strong poses and postures by the model.
New film written & directed by Mann is another moving image that sets his style of fast cut edit. His quick cut edit style, that takes viewer away from the topic by keeping them locked in for the come back of a story is a joy. The short film produced by Savoir Flair for Chanel, presenting their Cameila jewelry collection, is set into an artistic moving image.
