This summer I embarked on a new film project with Los Angeles based artist Man One. I shot several time lapses to gather the footage for the first short film in the series. The name of the series is Faces LA and "Volar" is the first mural in the series. The striking mural is located at 8th Street and Flower Street in downtown Los Angeles. Man One has painted murals throughout the world. He wanted to do a special campaign in his home town painting murals of everyday people. I loved shooting the footage and watching the painting come to life. I was awestruck with the precision Man One has with a spray paint can. One practical thing I learned was that capturing footage in an alley where there are cars coming in and out of a parking garage all day is no easy feat! Especially when people are leaving work and in a hurry. We had to put up caution tape around my tripod and camera just in case! To learn more about the Faces LA campaign visit manone.com #FACESLA. The music in the video is the song "Ganas" by Nomadico.
