Images by MARCH / Art Direction by And Partners
The initial idea was to create a series of black and white lifestyle images positioned in some of the buildings most unique amenities.The black and white versions include custom shot talent to match the lighting, feel, and unique environment. MARCH and And Partners worked with photographer Anders Overgaard and Root Studio to shoot the talent for each image. Full color and black and white images were delivered with and without talent for different phases of the campaign.
Additionally MARCH created a 360 pano tour of the roof top terrace amenity space.

(ABOVE) is an animated build-up of the talent integration done for the roof terrace image. It shows the complexity of shooting what appears to be a long dining table with numerous attendees in a confined studio environment. Every detail was taken into consideration prior to the shoot. The tables and talent were shot separately in order to get the right lighting values for each. The perspective for the table positions was tracked on the floor, and the table dressings were adjusted and simplified as the table moved back in space.The lighting for the tables and talent were adjusted as well to account for changes in the adjacent scene lighting per shot, and the reflection of the talent was captured for reflection in the railing glass. (BELOW) A breakdown of key adjustments in the talent composite and post production processes paired with the final black and white image.
