Shot in India, directed by Sara Dunlop with cinematography by Antonio Paladino… Facebook.

The documentary style commercials focus on Neha, Sandeep, Sunny and Heena, ordinary Facebook users living in India with their lives online. These four videos profile people who don’t necessarily fit neatly into stereotypes… Neha, for example, is a a feminist doctor who teams sneakers with her saris and likes watching boxing. There’s also Sundeep, better known as Sandy, a sushi-loving record collector who invites friends to a monthly dance party in his “man-cave.”

Cinematographer Will Bex shoots a major campaign for Opel directed by Alex & Liane, alongside a commercial for E-On directed by Scott Lyon.

Shot on location in Barcelona, E-On continues the collaboration between Will and director Scott Lyon (Outsider). A fantasy world is created throughout the streets of Barcelona to align with the ‘heat’ of E-On’s output, where Busby Berkeley inspired synchronised swimming drives the narrative.
