Today is released the musical video for ”O Solitude” by Birds On a Wire, directed by the talented Jeremiah, on which I work as director of photography.
Working on this video was so challenging, because of the conditions of the set, everything was shoot underground, in Paris metropolitan, almost only with available light, and with alot of improvisation.
To reach this “vintage look” that feels like issue from the 1960’s I chose to shoot with Nippon Kogaku lens set from 1968 to 1973.
I’m very proud to have been chosen by talented director Jeremiah to work as director of photography for hist latest musical video “Oiseau Sauvage” for brazilian artist Dom La Nena.
Working on this video was quite a challenge to achieve this very subtle and warm lighting, especially with all the texture surrounding Dom La Nena and the girls.
The shooting took place in mid 2018 but the video was released only in october 2019.
I’ve worked as DOP in collaboration with Robin Montreau, together we chose to shoot with ARRI Alexa Mini and a vintage set of LEICA-R cine-modified lenses from the 1970
I have been invited by pioneer of electronic music Jean Michel Jarre to photo-shoot and document the release of his autobiography in Paris.
I chose a very discrete approach for the photo-shoot and try to render images between light and shadow which reflects the intamacy of his book “Melancholique Rodeo”.
I’m very proud to announce that I’ve join the members of Hans Lucas Studio, a collective of photographers directed by Wilfrid Esteve.
