Nescafe – Takes You Away

This is the first time I got to “direct” a video, and quite a unique project this turned out to be. Picking up stuff we’ve been doing in our cosplay photography work, we sought to create a fantasy world that can’t exactly be pin-pointed in terms of style and period. A good inspiration were the art and interior designs from Final Fantasy 7 and 8. It was a mix of a classic taste with a modern approach.  

So… they’re technically called cinemagraphs as standalone images, but we laid them out to tell a story. Just like passion projects, our aim is to make you believe, even for that brief a moment that you can be taken away to your happy place in a mug of Nescafe.
