We’ve just finished a film showing off Motasem’s latest collection of dresses, shot and directed by Abbie Lucas. Sabina Ali, founder of Motasem, asked us to film the stills shoot which she commissioned for her marketing materials.

Shot at the breathtaking Lordship Park, Abbie chose a starburst filter to give the film that soft, glowing effect.

  1. Hi Gavin, great video – really stylish, very impressed. I will certainly suggest having our more interesting stills shoots video’d by you and your team to our clients. Our latest project is a bit boring though and doesn’t really lend itself to the moving image – plates!!

  2. Thanks Abi.

    Yes, the client was pleased to spend a little more money and get better value out of the shoot. Next time we’ll also get the model to pose for us, as well as the camera, but with 10 dresses in different set ups to get through in one session, there wasn’t much time!
