Wallpaper* x Pullman
When Wallpaper magazine, Somesuch and Pullman approached us with director Isaac Lock's treatment for a piece of bespoke content, we were excited and felt right in our comfort zone. "High rise" is an evocative poetry of the city, a wandering of a traveling muse acted by Lujza Richter (watch out for her as Princess Mona Braganza in the soon to be released Paul Thomas Anderson directed "Phantom Thread".)
Here is the film:
We love working with scripts and make complete video and film production projects based on storyboards. However, sometimes, with a dreamier type of works, the creative process is more organic and a lot may be revealed during the intensive recces our team provides. The city is a visual orgasm, a living, changing organism weaving the threads of thousands of stories. The city is liquid...And so the story was born: a woman surrounded by brutal architecture, the Christo like" wrapped" buildings , an intriguing encounter with Koi fish. This is what a global nomad may see in Hong Kong, while staying at the Park Lane, a Pullman hotel.
Want to see more? Here are a few behind the scenes pix. The two first ones are the start of a new series by HK producer David Attali " BTS moments". Thank you Lujza for the emotion and presence. You are beautiful.
