Luc Besson hired me to photograph the main actor, Anne Parillaud, for the movie poster & advertising for his film, "La Femme Nikita".
I watched the film to get a sense of the mood, lighting, and story. Flew to Paris where I set up a mock-set in a photo studio and created a lighting palette that reflected the look of important scenes in the movie. The wardrobe worn by Anne Parillaud was brought to the photo studio, as well as the make-up and hair dressers.
Anne Parillaud was able to get into character and the poster won several awards for Best Movie poster. The film became a cult favourite, and two re-makes of the film were released in English, but the original French is the best.

Used 35mm film as sunglasses on a model with platinum blonde hair and bright red lipstick in the style of Jean Harlow.
Added HOLLYWOOD letters in the sunglasses using Photoshop thus combining many elements of classic Hollywood film stars.
Write and illustrate a children's book based on true events about a rescue cat who rescues a goldfish.
Photo-montage many photographs to illustrate the book.

Open competition to create a poster for The American Film Market that reflects the movie industry.
I created a Technicolor palette in my studio by mixing several different lights to simulate the Golden Age of Hollywood and the amazing colour film, then covered the floor with cyan/blue Mylar and spray painted some cloud effects on the wall. My studio was SO small that the model's feet touched the wall in front of her. I found a vintage-style striped swimsuit and replaced the straps with 35mm movie film strips. Make-up was applied to the model's back and arms for that creamy Technicolor look. I shot it on film with my Pentax 6x7 camera.
My image was selected for the American Film Market poster and has won several prestigious awards.
