Shitty Interview No.48

2015 was a huge year for NYC Film & Photography duo/lovers, Vanessa Hollander & Wilson Philippe. Wilson’s French & Vanessa’s American Brazilian, but they both grew up & met in Miami. They’ve been a couple for over 7 years & are together almost 24/7. Sounds just like me & Sebastien!

They create exclusively on film under the name, Wiissa & fill their time with dream projects, including one of our favourite film clips of last year, ‘Rush’ by Kali Uchis. I have no doubt that the pair will back up their success in 2016 & I cannot wait to see what they do next.

For now here is a shitty interview & photo series by Wiissa. Peep loads more of their work here.

(Side not for Vanessa & Wilson: Lets double date next time we get over there!!!)

Sticks & Stones: You have 24 hours to live. How are you going to spend your time?
Wiissa: Invite all of our best friends to go boating. Take it out to the middle of the ocean, swim & sunbathe all day, then throw a disco dance party on the boat at night.

Sticks & Stones:  Please number 1-5 in order of Importance. 1 being the most important & 5 being who gives a fuck; The bible, scented candles, boobs, toilet paper, Britney Spears.
Wilson Wiissa: 1 = Boobs, 2 = Toilet paper, 3 = Scented candles, 4 = The Bible, 5 = Britney Spears
Vanessa Wiissa: 1 = Boobs, 2 = Britney Spears, 3 = Toilet paper, 4 = Scented candles, 5 = The Bible

Sticks & Stones: Favourite set of twins?
Vanessa Wiissa: Emily & Amanda. My best friends since I was 8 years old! & now our muses in our photos & videos. & the coolest twins EVAAAA.

Sticks & Stones: What is the first thing you would tell your pet if they could understand you?
Wiissa: I would ask my dog if he has a name in his head for me.

Sticks & Stones: If you were forced to select from one of these three options to shove in your eye, what would you chose; Bloody tampon, Bird shit, knife?
Wiissa: Bloody tampon. I’d rather my own tampon, but even if it was someone else’s, i’d still chose tampon! I hate birds so much & they always shit on me 🙁

Sticks & Stones: What are you going to teach your kid about women?
Wiissa: Men & women are equal (simple). Never underestimate the power of a women. Support other women (especially those with less privilege).

Sticks & Stones: Plz write down your to do list for today.
Wiissa: 1. Answer this interview. 2. Music video editing. 3. Answer emails (meh). 4. Remember to eat. 5. Make condensed cut of our first short film (coming soon!) 6. & a bunch of other stuff we’re avoiding.

Sticks & Stones: Can we see your passport photo plz?
Wiissa: (passport photos pasted in).

Sticks & Stones: Most embarrassing song on your playlist rn?
Wiissa: No song’s embarrassing but we’ve got ‘Conga’ by Gloria Estefan & ‘Porcelain’ by Moby.

Sticks & Stones: Favourite word to say?
Wiissa: Abacaxi (pineapple in Portuguese). AH.BAH.CAH.SHEE. It’s really fun to say.
