    Been eagerly await this video to get released. Very pleased with the outcome of it. Joseph Kahn really nailed the direction of it and Taylor was super professional and really got into the filmmaking ideas we were going for. Mega talent there. I was impressed.

    Lot of Ronin usage in this one. Shot in 2 days just outside of Manhattan in New Jersey. This is all OLPF2 (Skin-Tone/Highlight).

    Enjoy peeps.

    Were you the DP on this? It's really very beautiful work on your part, and works perfectly with the song. Joseph really brought out some powerful acting from her. Poetic, pretty, awesome work all around.

    Just to say it again from the other thread.

    I personally think it's some of Chris's best work. He's just killing it.

    Ah Phil, didn't see your post in the other section. Thanks for posting it, but YouTube finally uploaded the vid and I can get it in Indonesia! I haven't tried looking into the Occulus Rift stuff at the end of the video. Not only did we have a majorly ambitious number of shots we wanted to get in 2 days, but we had to accommodate a 360-degree interactive product placement "experience" for Amex, who were funding a chuck of the budget. Some cool possibilities there for future content. The idea was that viewers could literally explore the room that the video was in, and then go off and "walk" around the rest of the mansion and then happen back upon the "video" in other parts of the house.

    Phil, just wait, we are sitting on a piece (in vfx/post madness) that is on a whole other level. I'm literally pulling my skin off waiting for it to drop. This Taylor vid was a fun little fashiony frolic, I'm about to kick you all in the cinematographic nuts with the next one.

    Stay tuned to this channel.
