“I need … Caravaggio! Give me chiaroscuro. Light the candle! Camera ready? Now… Action!”
OK. So I got a little carried away. But it was my directorial debut, after all. And the cameraman - my friend, the Emmy award winning documentary filmmaker Dan McKinney – just sighed and shot it brilliantly.
I will give you more details of ‘the making’ later. How my vision was shaped. For now, here’s the video. (There’s a very slight difference between the UK and Canadian versions, in the pack shot, so click on whichever is geographically closer.)
See: ‘pack shot’! I’m ready to shoot my first commercial, Ridley!
