    We worked with @fash_rev, Director @balthazarklarwein and Feel Films on #LovedClothesLast, a powerful short film that looks at the issue of mass consumption and waste, which has created an unprecedented crisis and a significant impact on climate change. Graded by #MillColour’s Oisin O'Driscoll @oisinodriscoll_colour, the film showcases a disturbing dystopian reality where landfill and decay meet everyday life, and reminds us that small individual actions can have a lasting effect on our plant.
