Was there anything different about this shoot from your usual meticulously planned productions?
The Wrangler shoot was a bit crazy, very different from the way I usually work. Mark [Pytlik] @ Stink Digi called me on a Wednesday and asked if I was available to fly to Portland the next day and shoot that Sunday!! They had all agreed on the transition effect, so the brief was to build a film around it. The rest was very open.
So the shoot was a LOT more spontaneous and instinctive than how I usually work. A lot of it was just me and Shawn Kim (DP) running around and improvising.
It was a really fun and fresh way to work, and I think ultimately there’s a nice rawness that comes across thanks to that.
