Telling a story

Barnsdall proved a perfect setting for the story we set out to tell; longtime friends who find that they have seen each other in a different light. Produced and styled by NEAT, with stunning models, actors  Carrie Genzel and Mark Sherman interpreted by the talented Christina Gandolfo. Assisted by Stephanie Dunham and production support provided by Cody Bruner.

Shifting the thinking

Waste and lack of consistent recycling policies on shoots has long been an irritant.

Those little plastic bottles are just so wrong, as are the plastic utensils, paper coffee cups, styro-foam food containers. We suggested to the crew that we try to eliminate as much waste as possible. So on the next shoot (with a theme of Eco-Living, curiously enough…) we invited both cast and crew to bring their own water bottles and coffee cups. We brought cutlery, plates, cups and linen napkins, along with cotton towels for cleaning rather than paper towels. At the end of a 10-hour day, with a crew of 20, we were surprised and gratified to see that we had not even filled one trash or recycling bag.And that was just the small victories behind the scenes; the images are just stunning, great prop, set and wardrobe styling and gorgeous models. One of the best days ever!
