Sini Anderson’s a Brooklyn-based dapperQ who has just directed this tangy new book trailer (whu?) for Whipsmart by Melissa Febos. Once you think about it, the concept of book trailers makes perfect sense; but it can’t be a literal re-telling if it’s gonna grab me. Gotta bring art to the art if I’m gonna download it to my precious Kindle (which I am)!
I’m glad to count Sini as one of my friends, having watched her command crowds as a performer at the Michigan Women’s Music Fest over several years. She’s also been providing her savvy to how we will be rolling with dapperQ in the coming months – ncluding making sure that the site is welcoming to all comers including straight women. Admit it, you thought I was gonna say transmen.
The trailer is edited by one of the most stylish bio boys I know, Bo Mehrad. He’s pictured on the left (red tie) in this great photo by teamrockstar.com Bo turned me on to London-based Merc Suits two years ago so this summer I trotted down Saville Row and picked up a deep blue 44R blazer!
Last time we were at his house, I told my wife to fake a seizure so I can get in his closet and rip shit off.
