Behind the Scenes of an Epic One-Day Shoot: Bringing the Paramount Hotel Iconic Vision to Life!

At the end of 2019, just before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I had the incredible opportunity to direct and shoot an advertising campaign for the renowned Paramount Hotel Dubai. Thanks to the invaluable contribution of a dream team of skilled professionals, we were able to complete the entire production in a single day.

The production included a team of filmmakers including Emiliano Arganaraz as a DP, a renowned filmmaker in Dubai. I directed the scenes and handpicked the team which included some of the best fashion, hair and makeup stylists in Dubai. We also worked with a fantastic video grip team.

Thank you to Inna Gernega, Nicolas Naim Zaboura and the Paramount team, whose support and trust in my vision played an integral role in the successful completion of the project.

Here are the results…
