The Mexican department store COPPEL SA de CV, with headquarters in Culiacan, Mexico, commissioned CHRIS HUNT to make two summer films to advertise the elegant fashion lines Thinner and Rio Beach. Both films were made on location – and of course on the beach in Mexico and in San Miguel de Allende, World Cultural Heritage since 2008. Production support came from Quadro Production.
Check out the latest version of my show reel of the commercials I have directed. It’s a mix of things I’ve done for clients in the U.S.A. and Mexico. It’s been a lot of fun getting to this point with the motion work, and I have a lot of new projects just completed or in the works right now including commercials, music videos and film. I can’t wait to get them all edited so I can show you what I have been up to.
And here is a shout out to my Director of Photography, Ivan Vilchis Ibarra… you can see his work here: http://www.ivanvilchisibarra.com He’s an extremely talented DP and a great guy to work with. One of the things I have learned about directing is that it’s all about assembling a talented team, and working together in an open and collaborative environment. As a director I need people like Ivan around me to offer their expertise and input. And I also have to give them the freedom to try their ideas out. After all, the goal of every one on the set of a film project is to support the director and make the project look as good as it possibly can. So a big thank you to everyone I have worked with on these projects!
