What to do when the talent no-shows?
Guest Post by The Ask-A-Producer!
Last week, we had a great opportunity to work with an actor/author that was coming through town on a press junket. We were excited to add him to our entertainment portfolio, and use the work in social media. The bad news? He never showed up. It sucked, and we were bummed.
But we aren't easily deterred. The stage was set, what good would come out of putting it all away, and being mad about it all weekend? So we got onto Instagram, reached out to several local models that have shown interest in testing with us, booked h/mu stylists, and we were set.
Monday/Tuesday of this week, we made some exciting photographs to add to our sport portfolio, creating conceptually driven action and portrait shots, including video footage! Andy created dark, cinematic shots using moody lighting and gels to create an otherworldly effect. I can't wait to get this work out into the world, but until then, here's some hot BTS action!
