Viktoria Modesta “Prototype” for Channel 4

London’s Electric Theater Collective supply VFX and animation back up for Rogue director Saam Farahmand‘s new stunner for Channel 4’s Born Risky campaign starring British singer-songwriter/model/multimedia performance artist/DJ Viktoria Modesta who, after spending most of her childhood in and out of hospitals, in 2007 chose to have her left leg amputated below-the-knee to improve her mobility.

Modesta: “The time for boring ethical discussions around disability is over. It’s only through feelings of admiration, aspiration, curiosity and envy that we can move forward.”
