PERRIER SPOTS

We spent a week in New York directing a couple of Perrier spots for their new campaign “District Perrier.”  It was a lot of work and great fun.  Our amazing team helped us pull off something magical.  Special thanks to A76 Productions, 11st Workshop and Ogilvy!

TIM & ERIC & OYSTER

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim editorial for Oyster magazine, shot by us.

Tim and Eric are very particular about everything they do, so we wanted to honor Eric’s idea of shooting this editorial with a “disposable camera look.”  Their “daughters” had no idea what was happening, but they played along and did an amazing job.

You can read the full article here, including a bit where they talk about the shoot.
