The first Valentino ad I directed was shot during the stills campaign imagined by Michal Pudelka. I love how it turned out as a film, even though I obviously had very limited access to models compared to a film first shoot. The challenge here was the overall stress on the shoot, as it was the young photographer’s first big job. Also, the fact that I had not much information what would come next and how I could make a film just based on spontaneous shots, I was able to do. I definitely upped my “high fashion game” with this particular work!
