F&F at Chateau de Franconville, France. We like to call it "S'échapper du château." (Escape from the castle) built in the 17th century and abandoned of the late. This was our venue for a few days, thinking with two brains, we set out to shoot a commercial and create new photographs to celebrate and promote the release of our first book in September. Not an easy task to do. But with an amazing crew: cinematographers Peggy and Lourdes Peralta, Martial Dahan, Green Mango, armed with the Red Camera, Canons and go pros we attacked with fervor. Models were Laurenne Juliet and Fallon, world famous violinist Sayaka Shoji. Amazing hair and Make up team Samuel Chikly and Marianne Desgree.
Special thanks to Alexandre Metz of YK Galleries for co-producing this joint, Jarred Land of Red Cameras and all the hard working assistants on set, especially my daughter Allegra Formento.
The 2 minute short film will premiere at all UGC cinemas in Paris for one week in September and one week in October.
The images will be exhibited in September at YK Pompidou, Paris, and F&F will be there on the 18th for the launch party of our book "Circumstance" which will be available at galleries and on amazon. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
Hope to meet you there.
Au revoir, Merci.
BJ and Richeille Formento
