Digitas/Boston was the ad agency. The creative brief was to create a series of enviroments in a studio and capture various emotions of young people using Lenovo mobile devices they were enjoying off camera. The welcome challenge for me was to capture all video at 120 frames a second. All videos were done on an Arri Alexa Camera with angenieux lenses set on a industrial strength rail system all tripped out by Derrick Zimmerman at Motion Picture Rentals . Congratulations Michel, enjoy!
So I arrive at the bare bones brooklyn studio. Everyone is busy setting up three rental sets for us to do a print campaign for Robert Allen’s new hotel line of textiles by designer Kirk Nix. The design director, says, “guess what we are going to do a video from the print campaign!” Cool! No pressure and no more coffee…
This video would have happened but I don’t think the end result would have been as good without the post production magic of The Station. Many thanks to Hugh and Jon for their finesse and good taste. And to David and Ric, congratulations, a pleasure to work with you and for you! Thanks for having me and for keeping me properly caffeinated!!!
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with the talented creatives at Robert Allen Design again. David and Ric wanted me to join them in a bare bones studio and create some intimate sexy imagery of Kirk Nix’s newest textile line for hotels. It was a great day full of lots of lighting toys and sexy body parts that was used as 4×8 foot murals in the Robert Allen Showroom and trade shows. Awesome action p0acked day!.Thanks David and Ric! Also a special shout out to Michel and Jonathan for their help creating these images.
