INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.
The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.
Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today's pop culture.
"Influencers" belongs to the new generation of short films, webdocs, which combine the documentary style and the online experience.

In November 2011 I travelled to Los Angeles to shoot a photo campaign for the fitness company Les Mills. I worked with the agency Colenso BBDO based in New Zealand. The concept was centred in the idea of 'the group effect'. This is the behind the scenes video of the 2 shoot days.
