- Insane Clown Posse
- Photographer Paul Mobley asked me to team up with him on a recent shoot, featuring Detroit's own Insane Clown Posse.
After some early brainstorming and pre-production meetings with Paul, we chose our strongest concepts to execute on set. We were on a tight schedule and wanted to capture as many shots as possible, so we decided to shoot ICP on green screen at their own studio. Then we went on to Greene's Hamburgers in Farmington Hills to shoot the diner image. Next, Paul spent a couple days shooting downtown, precariously positioning himself on the edges of rooftops and coming back down to ground level for shots of dramatic Detroit architecture. And finally, the fun part — putting the pieces together. I created the balloons, Bomb Pops, and color block background entirely CGi, then composited the rest using everything Paul shot in the city. Then I met with Paul to go over all the finishing touches and final effects.
