Filmmakers Jon Jenkins & Sarah Charlie Benjamin investigate the interior lives of models — the people behind the images we see every day in fashion magazines and billboards.  “The project lends itself to the gritty New York culture that these kids are living in,” Jon says of the project. “My goal was to capture [the] imperfect sound quality our very first conversations.”
