Shanghai market

Seq_930_LightingKeys_CL

Before starting my work on Penguins, I saw in the reels there was a sequence in a market in Shanghai. I really really REALLY wanted to work on it. I was so happy I got this as my first assignment! My friend Jean Julien Pous has done some incredible photography of Hong Kong markets, and I thought about his beautiful short film “Seeking you”. I know he is also a big Wong Kar Wai fan, so stuff like “Chungking express” was also a big influence for this sequence. This one was SO. MUCH. FUN. Check out Jean Julien´s work HERE.
