Shooting for Zink Magazine using the Broncolor Mobil A2L kit. How to make it look like night while it is day using strobe lighting on location.
I was brought on board by Strawberry Frog, a creative agency based in NY, and LG to make a music video for Pretty Lights. I worked closely with Derek (Pretty Lights) on the idea and aesthetic. We both wanted to revisit some of my well versed camera techniques as well as try out some new ones. It was a real pleasure spending time with him, cruising around Brooklyn, shooting elements and meeting people involved in the making of the record. We both liked the fact that our creative processes had certain analogue parallels and i feel like this video shows the success of that shared outlook. I hope you enjoy!

We built this set and tore it down for $350 in 1week. It was for a work project. It was a blast, we literaly made it up as we built it. Practically everything was borrowed, the car rims, the casters, the furniture, the 5d, batteries, inverter, the fork lifts. We had alot of fun playing with it once we got the shots. Thanks for watching.
