Want to know what the high-stakes, competitive world of modeling is really like? You're invited to drop by 8th & Ocean. Deep in the heart of Miami's hot South Beach, ten professional models from IRENE MARIE MODELS live together in a beachfront apartment complex, each trying to make their way in a glamorous yet very demanding industry. From the fading star afraid her time has passed to the naïve newbie testing her moral limits to the party boy searching for true love, 8th & Ocean shows you the hard work and human drama behind the glossy fashion spreads. Capturing the real lives of the cast with the look and feel of a drama, 8th & Ocean is shot in the style of a narrative film, but with an “indie edge.” There are no interviews or confessionals – the stories are told purely through probing camerawork, eclectic music and unscripted dialogue.
Britt, Kelly, Sabrina, Tracie, Briana and Talsesha are the six
drop-dead-gorgeous models who share one apartment. Down the hall live
Adrian, Teddy, Sean and Vinci, the four hot guys in the other model
aparment. Imagine 10 frail egos, two apartments and only one common
desire; to be booked. Nail-biting tensions build as each model sees
what they are made of when "being beautiful" seems to be the only test
of character. Envy and insecurity abound as the models look in the
mirror for the first time, not always liking what they see. What's most
ironic about the beautiful life is that, somewhere deep down, we still
wish it was us. If only for a day.
