Continuing a long series of collaborations with Atelier, Nola Pictures Director, Juan Delcan, recently completed a beautiful spot for Proctor & Gamble’s Herbal Essences.
Delcan had teamed up with Atelier previously, exploring new techniques, new ways of looking at hair and beauty shooting, and combining images and textures with natural elements like water, flora and fauna, and animated graphics. This history made the shoot and post processes very straightforward, with the familiarity pushing creative collaborations at all stages of production.
To say the Atelier team was pleased with Delcan’s work is an understatement. “Shooting with Juan is like going back to school,” noted Atelier Producer David Schiavone. “He brings a one-of-a-kind look and feel to every project.”
Atelier CD Kristin Moore-Gantz noted, “Juan’s inventive work is universally luscious and understood, and he’s a potent visionary when these talents are applied to beauty. He is a genius in all his mediums, speaking our beauty language to help us paint the global Herbal Essences campaign.”
Delcan, shooting on a Phantom Camera and a Canon 5D MKll for some elements, worked closely with the creative team at Atelier throughout the process. “As usual, they had such a clear vision and trusted us to find an unexpected path to realize it,” stated Delcan. “That kind of confidence and collaboration let us work and experiment very freely. Our team thrives in that situation – we want to justify the trust that both Atelier and Proctor & Gamble have in us. In the end, we’re all invested in creating something fresh and effective, and I think our team really pulled that off.”
