Getting Ready For The Match

This video was part of a bigger project for an automotive client that I directed a while back.

I was quite happy with the outcome since it was a very rushed shoot and I had very little time for pre-production. I basically had to put everything together within 2 weeks from pre to post.

It was shot entirely on GoPro’s Hero4. Edited/Color-Corrected in Final Cut Pro.

Many thanks to my beautiful talent – Ting Lim, Amelyn Han, Shan Shan Tan & Vivon Chou and of course my wonderful makeup artists Stephanie Khoo and Jamie Ooi!

Paul Newman – The Penultimate Daytona Ambassador

Paul Newman - The Penultimate Daytona Ambassador

For those who don’t know, the late American actor Paul Newman was the penultimate Rolex Daytona ambassador. It is said that he wore a Daytona every single day from 1972 (a gift from his wife when he took up motor racing) till his death in 2008.

Since then, the Daytona has steadily built up a cult following, and is now considered one of the Holy Grails of watch aficionados everywhere.

The original Daytonas were not really in demand when they launched in 1961, and were relatively inexpensive. Somewhere along the way the hype built up and last year Christie’s auction house sold a 1969 Daytona for over a million US dollars.

Not bad for a watch that was originally sold for USD210!
