This film was shot in collaboration with Director Justin Cooper, Central Studios, Splice Boys and Cosmetic Specialist Lucie Lebailly. We decided to celebrate the hidden moments when beauty is at it’s most dynamic, the creative violence that is latent within the pristine now as represented by a finished fashion photograph. We shot models in the stylistic norm of fashion magazines. Using a Phantom Flex 4 camera at 1000 FPS and an array of 70 cameras to create the bullet time effects, we captured cloud bursts and explosions of cosmetic products around the models, to amplify their normally latent role in the moment. Slowing down and shifting focus, we witness the surreal and the transient, volatile nature of beauty and the beautification process.
