Working with an assistant my role included: Being In charge of designing the set for the photo-shoot; sourcing flooring, making backdrops and prop collecting. Weeks prior to the shoot date I was working and communicating with the production team, stylist and photographer. Additionally I was in charge of managing the budget and preparing the estimate of all costs. Finally, building the set with my assistant and changing and adjusting the set throughout different looks.
Working in a team of four, my main responsibilities included: Planning and the construction of two completely separate sets that were being filmed at different points over the course of three days. Being continuously aware of any changes or markings being made to the set by models/dancers. Liaising with the photographer and producer to collect any new materials off-set and have options available at the ready if it was decided that a different aesthetic was required. Cleaning, adjusting and changing the set when I felt it appropriate in between still life shots and filming of the product. Set Designer: David White.
For the Kate Spade SS17 campaign my main responsibilities were: Adjusting a series of new season Kate Spade bags to a blanket that had been designed to fit over the camels hump. As we were working with a live animal on this advertisement in the middle of New York City we had to be extremely careful when dressing it. Discussing with the creative team at Kate Spade how they would like the bags to appear in the shots and make sure this choice was executed exactly. Keeping all of the bags and accessories from falling off the animal and making any adjustments when needed. Additionally, looking after all Kate Spade products and when the filming was completed, returning them to the production team as they were given to me and the rest of our team. Set Designer: Robert Sumrell
Working as first assistant to Mila Taylor young for two fashion stories for W Magazine my responsibilities included: Prop and set prep days before the shoot. Researching locations and a variation of props and objects that would be suggested to the rest of the creative team at W Magazine. Building a series of walls for the shoot, painting them then liaising with the photographer on how the set should be arranged for each look. Working closely with the production team to support attempts to re-style the shoot within the time scale we were given to complete the photo-shoot.
Working with one other set builder our responsibilities included: Working closely with another set builder after being briefed on the creative concept for the Gareth Pugh window display for Selfridges. Cutting wood, sanding, plastering, and painting. Having a great eye for detail as some of the set had extremely intricate aspects to it. Working to a tight deadline, as there were only two of us working on this job, communication and being able to take direction was key. Set Designer: Thomas Petherick
