BEHIND THE SCENES 005

By Felix Dunphy on

We're back for what probably will be the last BTS of The Pen for the next 6 weeks... Due to Melbournes new stage 4 lockdowns we able to stay running, unfortunately our friends over at Halide have to shut (where we get the film developed -  shoutouts Halide)

This week we followed Alex to the makers and printers again for what could be the last of our pickups. J1m stops by again for a chat about an upcoming colab, as well as to shoot our new Ivory Full-Kit. Then there's the usual stock coming in, the boys hanging out and the dogs going crazy...
