Inspiration comes from the strangest places.. A song, a book, a feeling... sometimes a combination of things. This shoot came about from the pesky scratching at the back of your brain that one gets when you can't remember where you've heard a song before. I was searching YouTube for a movie clip that I knew one of my favorite songs was used in. Instead, I found a Hugo Boss Night ad staring Ryan Reynolds which featured it. (Enjoy it here)
"Angel" by Massive Attack and this ad were stuck in my mind. I had to recreate the feeling of that little window in time. Naturally, I called James Ling. The scheduling gods finally smiled upon us, giving us a chance to work together again after almost an entire year. He knocked it out of the park per usual.. These are a few of my favorites. I hope we have successfully captured the feeling of the track and a bit of Mr. Reynolds' mojo.. although I also see quite a bit of Mr. Bond here as well. Spyface. Is anyone else excited to see Spectre?
Please show James a little love on his new Facebook page, become a fan, poke around and see what he's up to.. and don't forget to check in with Wraven Design on Facebook for more updates and portraits. x
