A couple months back I had the awesome opportunity to work with Godfrey Q on a new still and motion campaign for VSP Vision Care. The concept revolved around seeing and experiencing the world from a very direct first person perspective with a “day-in-the-life” feel. I really loved the storytelling aspect of this project. It’s something I always have on my mind when shooting stills so there is a sense of time beyond the moment an image is captured, but with our video component having such a thick narrative thread moving our characters through their day from morning to night, I really got to explore that aspect in more depth. Capturing video from this unique perspective also provided some really fun challenges, both for me as a director and for our talent, who by wearing the camera on a specially designed rig, essentially became my camera operator for the day. There are a few behind the scenes shots below if you are curious, or check out #seeingisbelievaing for the full set of BTS shots from the whole team.
I could not have enjoyed working with the folks over at Godfrey Q more. Thanks a million for such a fun and challenging opportunity!

That would be me doing a pre-mature happy dance on the top of Mt. Tam (always dreamed of having a shoot up here) and Dana our AD still doing AD stuff. Much love Dana!
