A filmic homage to Nobuyoshi Araki, Sentimental Dream describes a playful & yet at times unnerving journey into the mind of the cult photographer. Made for Olympia Le-Tan's SS'16 collection inspired by Araki.
Collaborating with Norbert Schoerner is a constant pleasure. On this one, unfortunately I wasn’t able to be part of the principal shoot in Japan - however the post-process in UK was overseen by me. It’s a humble, low-fi homage to the great Araki - and it was a true pleasure to help bring that side of the story out through narrative development, VFX and edit. I hope you enjoy.
