Away We Stay

November 9th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (30)

Top models and advertising often go hand and hand, but what happens when a brand outside the realm of fashion utilizes famous faces to add a touch of glamour to their repertoire? To celebrate the launch of W Hotel’s London outpost a new film ‘Away We Stay’ takes two of the industry’s most recognizable faces – Helena Christensen and David Gandy and casts them as would be lovers. The engaging short film written and directed by Edoardo Ponti, and produced by Katrina Pavlos presents a familiar romantic dilemma. Faced with the choice between her thriving career as a fashion photographer and running away with a handsome stranger, Christensen’s character, Alex must choose love or success.

    Ha! – Peter I love you..though, you already know.

    What an incredibly beautiful short.
    David was great – Helena was perfection!
    I just fell in love with this… 🙁

    I demand a miniseries!

    Honestly, Helena is a revelation!

    She can convey different emotions just by her eyes alone. Isn’t that what true acting is all about? Those eyes are expressive. I felt every emotions and longings. What a fine wine she become…..

    Sorry Gandy, but as perfect as you are, Helena stole every scene.

    Nigel S….. You know you love me!

    Gandys actually an alright actor, he’s quite ugly these days though. He should do more acting.

  13. GP says:

    Helena forever, she should be an actress. Never thought they would be together and make a beautiful couple.

  14. HH says:

    Agreed with Mathew!! =D

  16. H says:

    both of them had a great perfomance!

  17. Elisa says:

    It was definitely very good for a fashion story in a film format. Is this the future of fashion? Will video take over photo? Or is this just a part? I guess it’s all speculation from here.

  18. Ash says:

    David Gandy is apparently “quite ugly these days” … I often think the comments section of MDC is plagued by 12 year olds, it’s sometimes beyond pathetic.

  19. Alex says:

    absolutely loved it..good acting by both helene and Gandy. now i am off to make a short film

  20. Augusten says:

    Hahahaha Eamon, so true! Pay attention Baptiste, watching him act is painful. But this I feel was really beautiful. I think David Gandy should really do a lot more acting and HELENA!!! She made you really believe the scene. Loved this!

  21. todd griffith says:

  22. michael says:

    What kind of blind troll would call David Gandy ugly??

  23. Nigel S. says:

    If that’s “ugly”… then sign me up!

  24. Marck says:

    See. That we like, two stunning top models turning actor/actress! Fantastic twist of the modelling world!

    Hope I can do the same one day 🙂

    The forehead at 2.06 is amazing. Shivers down the spine stuff, reminiscent of Brando’s debut night in A Streetcar Named Desire.

  26. 100% says:

    LOVE vision
    HATE acting
    LOVE lighting

  27. 100% says:

    HATE dialogue
    HATE script
    HATE unbelievability

  28. Cesar says:

    I wonder if those people that hate this have seen on what this short film was based on. 100% what pleases you? Do you read books? Do you only watch American Pie type movies? Please…..

  29. Dandy says:

    I liked the film but it seemed to lack an adequate story line.. and it is very unrealistic
    but overall great performance

  30. shazza fox says:

    I can’t believe David is not a Hollywood go to man. He’s the handsomest man walking around in London and any other place on the planet. He’s a very natural and believable actor. All I can say is, “Damn he’s good.”
