Director + DOP Duncan Kemp
I would really enjoy researching to find stories to tell and is something I have done in the past with other projects. Here is a great reference film, a great example of telling an emotive personal journey while also tying in the product/brand. It's also a good reference of how I would like to shoot it, handheld with lots of natural light:
Filming these portrait films in anamorphic will create a really beautiful aesthetic and add to the emotive nature of these films. Here are examples of a similar project I did for Red Cross in anamorphic, along with a car shoot with local scenery:
This project may be done in 3 days (1 day per film) but for the best result an additional drone day should be considered. I would includes 8 days of pre-production (mainly for research) 3/4 days for production and edit to personally fine tune each film:
Dubai (Kite) Surfer | Beach & Water Sports Gear
- While in the morning bliss of an early seawater dip or gazing at the sunset, a dubai based beach junkie escapes the routines of his daily life.
Emirati Woman | Business & Urban
- A young professional local woman who's exploring her potential of this fast evolving city.
GCC Today's Bedouin | Desert & Mountains
- A family man that ventures out into the sand & dune in expeditions, to enjoy & contemplate the solitude of his ancestors.
The description of each profile are achievable & realistic stories which are aligned with the GCC target audience of this project. The hero candidates may be scouted via a live casting along with the preproduction research. In a city of 4 million people, the above people that partake on these activities live as neighbors among us.
