Behind the Scenes with Rimmel London
In Spring 2016 we joined with a very exciting new client Rimmel, to promote their new product, an in-shower, self tan. A concoction designed to sail women (and men) through their beauty routines by conveniently combining the act of showering with tanning. The footage captured was used for a Daily Mail Snapchat campaign as well as a Rimmel website advertisement.
With sharp and conclusive shots, the final campaign was to deliver a sense of immediacy aimed to keep up with the fast pace of the modern media user while remaining short enough to hold their attention. A fantastic project to work on and plenty of scope for the Still Moving Media team to get creative.
The location was a fantastic house just outside of London, complete with sweeping staircases and indoor pool. After Zach and I got our hands dirty, cleaning the shower and some careful management to accommodate all the lighting and filming equipment, the bathroom was ready for scene one.To prevent the room becoming over crowded, we set up our display screen which communicated the captured visuals to our clients at Rimmel and The Daily Mail as well as our fantastic make-up artist.
The product lent itself beautifully to videography and allowed us to experiment not only with close up shower footage of water droplets clinging to the model's skin but also creative ways to portray the before and after sun-kissed transformation. Felicia, our model was animated, energetic and radiated the breezy, summer spirit that embraced the lens so naturally - even when the shower water ran cold…
A shoot is never complete without some challenges. We realised the trees outside the window were casting a shadow into the room, so we positioned a light outside the house that was then extended up to the second floor window. After essentially creating a sun of our own, the bathroom was flooded with the warm haze we were after. Good organisation on our part also allowed us to facilitate some impulsive ideas and experiments. With Felicia already dancing (as she does!) we filmed her legs to represent the excited anticipation and passage of time as the tan developed.
To reinforce Felicia's transformation after stepping out of the shower, post- tan, we used one of our rolling pink backing screens, pulling it down behind her at the climax of the big reveal, converting her 'bedroom' into a cat-walk show.
We called it a wrap in good time and even had the time to make the most of the sun coming out, with some improvised scenes captured in the garden. It was a memorable day spent establishing new relationships while working on a very exciting and innovative project.
