Winner of the Grand Prix ASVOFF Barcelona 2012 for Best Film for Ephemeral Nature, Gsus was recently commissioned to produce ‘It Melts,’ a film to launch Pigeons & Peacocks Issue 6.
I chose to study my BA in Fashion Media at London College of Fashion part time because I was supporting myself financially, so this meant I could continue paying my rent and tuition fees. I worked as a receptionist in a bank for a few months then in an office role for three years.
I was determined to make a change in my life and it gave me hope to know that at the end of the day I could hopefully find a job that was more creative. In my second year I focused on my studies in creative media and my teacher encouraged me to try working with film instead of photography. I worked in an office Monday to Wednesday each week so that from Thursday to Sunday I could concentrate on my university work and be creative.
The ‘It Melts’ video was my third film, but the first one I was paid to create. The LCF magazinePigeons & Peacocks commissioned the film and did open casting for the main role. We had to work hard to get permission to shoot in the locations around London and the result is a collaboration of me and a cinematographer, editor and camera operative. There’s a bit more about my work on my Showtime profile.
I finished the film during my summer break and we’re submitting it to festivals now, such as the Berlin Fashion Film Festival while I’m focusing on my final project, which will be another short film titled ‘Out’. There will be a final group show for the course in June.
The good thing about taking the part time course at London College of Fashion is that every day I was working in a corporate environment I felt I was working towards the days when I could get creative and do the thing that makes me happy. Only time will tell how successful it’s going to be.
My work has now been seen in publications in Italy, Spain, the U.S. and the UK and I’ve now been picked up to work for a Madrid-based creative agency after the course, so I’m excited for the future.

The award-winning filmmaker created ‘It Melts‘ for Issue six of Pigeons and Peacocks, and is now seeking to tackle his biggest project yet by telling the dramatic and sometimes comic story of a young man coming out as gay to his mother.



"It would be fair to say that here at Pigeons & Peacocks magazine we love award winning film-maker and current London College of Fashion student Gsus Lopez. Discovering his amazing short film Ephemeral Nature, we immediately fell in love with his style, immediately adored his vision and immediately wanted to work with him. For the launch of issue 6 of the magazine, we commissioned Lopez to create a film for us – and the man did not disappoint. It Melts, a delectable and stylish exploration of fashion addiction and consumption, was a feast for the eyes; a triumph.
Lopez returns with his fourth film Out, telling the story of single mother Mary and her closet-emerging homosexual son – and this time, Lopez wants your help. Tackling his biggest project yet, Lopez needs financial backing and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. Head on over to Gsus Lopez’s Kickstarter page to make a pledge and support this talented and visionary film-maker!

Volt launched their first app transforming the editorials of the issue 14 into artwork.
‘Volt Introduces’ ten young artists who were commissioned to interpret ten editorials from Volt 14 into a vision of their own, using illustration, film, animation and photography, with illustration as the focal point.
Download Volt app HERE
To get to know the young talents more, we had a short interview with them.
Let us introduce: film maker Gsus Lopez
Volt Café: Where do you find your inspiration?Gsus Lopez: From literature, music, or even a person I see on the street but mainly from film auteurs. I love cinema and constantly watch films, so I get inspired by them even subconsciously. My favourite directors are Pedro Almodovar, Xavier Dolan and Wong Kar Wai, to name just three.
Click here or in the image above to read the rest of the article.
The VOLT editorial that they gave me to get inspired from was titled ‘What Boys Don’t Know' and which led me to do the little video below, shot and edited by usual DoP Rafael Bujosa, both assisted by stylist turned producer this time Viktorija Balankevic (#DreamTeam):
