Bonhams recently had a fine jewellery sale in London. I went along before the opening to film Sarah Harris, Deputy Editor of British Vogue, having a preview of some of the pieces and choosing her favourites.
I’ve just seen that Swarovski have uploaded their Lanvin Spring 2017 video. I shot this along with another cameraman a while back. Swarovski wanted a watery feel which we achieved with some rather Heath Robinson methods.
It’s always fascinating to see artisans at work. Jewellery makers are no exception. I spent three days in Paris at a specialist atelier to film the design and manufacture of rings, bracelets and earrings. We packed a lot into three days and I look forward to seeing the finished edit when it’s completed.
Jewellery filming fascinates me as often I am required to shoot very close up macro content. This shoot for House of Garrard was no exception. Over several days, with one other cameraman, I filmed footage for a bridal collection as well content to be used in several other videos.
I’ve just returned home after spending the day with supermodel Karlie Kloss. I was filming behind the scenes footage during a Swarovski photoshoot. She was a true professional – a long day with lots of costume changes and lots of cameras pointed at her. Rather her than me!
Atelier Swarovski have been busy recruiting yet more top level designers to collaborate with on their collection of home design objects. In March I went to film four designers, Ron Arad, Tord Boontje, RawEdges and Tomas Alonso talking about the pieces they designed and the inspiration behind them. I particularly enjoyed filming Ron Arad in his London studio. You can see the Tord Boontje video here. All direction, production and post production by Video Marcoms.
Dallas Clayton is an American childrens author and illustrator. Geox make shoes that breathe. They came together and created a story about shoes coming to life and launched a campaign called “Let Your Imagination Breathe”. I went along to the Oxford Street branch of Geox to film a day to celebrate Dallas’ book “Gerald’s Missing Shoe” along with some young fans. We also got to interview him about what he does. Once again I was filming for Video Marcoms who produced, directed and edited this content.
