Clinique - Beauté Naturelle
(Natural Beauty)

Through agency Fahrenheit 212 in New York, I teamed up with Hideoki Productions to craft this sensual spot for a new line of all-natural cosmetics by Clinique out of France.

In order to achieve the extreme slow motion and sense of ‘floating’, our DP Shin Maruyama shot at over 1200 frames per second - fifty times slower than the human eye perceives motion.

At this speed you need a lot of light in the studio. And with a lot of light comes a lot of heat. So much so that Laura, our talent, had to take breaks between shots to avoid getting burned!
