This is by FAR one of my favorite projects to date. Not only did we get to make some high-impact menswear videos, but we got to shoot in the inconic Trunk Club signature clubhouse on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, and have full reign of their spaces. These videos are pretty straight forward, we give valuable editorial styling tips based on Trunk Club’s FW2018 collection, and make the space look as cool as possible. Our goal for these videos was two fold, as Trunk Club is both an online box service, but also an in-person styling service. We wanted to show the audience what’s possible when using the service, and some of the incredible looks you could be served when signing up and going in-person. We got to create these mini styling vignettes in full Esquire fashion, with lots of film looks, 8mm moments, mixed with floating Arri Alexa footage. All-in-all a simple yet effective, efficacious collaboration.
My Roles: Initial concerting and ideation, model selection, creating looks with our stylist, pitching creative and pre-production decks to client, on-set directing and producing, supervising the creative through post-production.
