…”Stylist Amanda Antunes and I have collaborated on various projects in the past, and always with rewarding results. We both wanted to challenge ourselves with a project that would combine different things that we both share a passion for, the love of video as a medium, fashion, music and dance but with a bit of an edge to it.” Bob Packert
WATCH: RAW // A look behind construction
Raw was made in one take about a year ago. I had this sitting on my computer waiting to have its parts together. It was made before I even knew I was going to be married, and the reason I mention this… well…you’ll see.
I asked Bob to shoot the idea of transforming a garment on the spot without actual sewing materials. I used scissors, but that’s about it. All fabrics and strips were prepared, in a way I knew what I wanted but had no idea how I was going to proceed as I only had one chance. We blasted Son Lux on speakers and got to it.
Well, here it is, with my low budget and beautiful people helping me on this. It was my first real video concept and when I was still in love with deconstruction.
Special thx to Jennifer & Stephen for standing still and not freaking out about me holding a pair of scissors near you.
One of the most exciting projects I have ever worked for is in progress. And I’ve been counting the days for our final shooting dates. This collage is from our day 3 in studio.

Day One: Pre-production test shoot with Sara Murphy (video still).
Stay tuned for my upcoming video project with Bob Packert. There’ll be dance, magic, love and poetry. I can’t think of a better Spring start than this.
So, yesterday I styled Jeri Evan. Jeri is the tallest model I have ever worked with. We needed a picture together. Bob Packert recorded this moment. ;)
In studio today.
I mentioned a few weeks back that I had started working on some tracks with Joey Asal. This is one of the first sounds we worked on and Bob Packert asked us to finish the piece so he could use in his “Man of War” Fashion video.
Super excited to work on more!!!!
