Visual style of 5 present day legends

There are few things more important to film directors than visual style. While story and performance are always given the utmost attention, the look and feel of a film can be just as influential. Visual style gives directors a unique voice that can make their work recognizable without a word being uttered. And with recognition comes reputation: legendary filmmakers such as Francois Truffaut, Orson Welles, and Alfred Hitchcock had such distinct styles that their names became synonymous with their singular aesthetics.

Today, this is more important than ever. Modern directors have to find new ways to tell stories that will set them apart from the pack, and a select few do it in a way that speaks to their unique sensibilities while resonating with a wide audience. In the video, shutterstock pays homage to the visual style of five present-day legends using only footage and music found in the Shutterstock library. I found this so interesting and well done.

IMG_3027This 3 day shoot at the Producers Loft in San Francisco was for the campaign to raise awareness for trans gender women of color that have HIV. I Assisted Katrina Schissel from GiGiPark to set up the living room. All furniture and smalls were supplied by GiGI Park to create a safe, comfortable environment for multiple interview set ups during the 3 days. Long Story Short Media from Washington DC produced this campaign along with Kaiser Foundation. Activists from all over the country were invited to come together to talk about these issues. It was an honor to work with such an amazing crew and talent. Their stories were so touching and thought provoking and their strength humbling. Keep your eyes and hearts open when this campaign will be seen on billboards, on TV and online.
