As everybody could see this week on America's Next Top Model Tyra and the girls of cycle 15 made a short movie directed by Tyra Banks herself and shot in a beautiful castle in Verona. The place Verona was actually an source of inspiration for Shakespeare and an excision place to shoot Tyra's debut film called Modelli Folli (translated model madness). 
Tyra said: 
“To be honest, I was really nervous about directing the girls in motion for the first time. I have photographed the girls in past cycles as their photographer, but shooting a motion editorial was a completely different ballgame. When we wrapped, I fell to ground because I was exhausted, but excited at the same time! I have to tell you that I have a whole new respect for directors through this process! It looks easy, but it ain’t. I wanted to give the Top Model fans something different and visually appealing for the new high fashion cycle, so I hope they like it. If they do, maybe I’ll do something bigger in the future…(fingers crossed!),” says Banks.
Check the video out and tell me what you think.
Please don't mind the bad quality.
