I was called by Hindy Weber-Tantoco late last year because she was celebrating her 10th year in the fashion industry and she wanted to do a special video for the big celebration. When I went to her office for the pre production meeting, I was expecting the concept to be the usual behind-the-scenes shoot with cool elevator music and soft focus shots of the models getting made up. I was wrong. She wanted an upbeat, monochromatic, fast cut edit that required heavy directing because she didn't want a behind-the-scenes vid. She showed me a peg that looked pretty easy to shoot because it required a white background with harsh lighting for good contrast and defined shadows.
So this is what I came up with. Enjoy the film!
