“BEHIND THE SCENES "
BEHIND THE SCENES editorial featured in VOLANT MAGAZINE, OCTOBER 2018 No 11.
The story featuring Broadway Actor Tom Nelis. I wanted to capture a behind the scenes look at a theatrical actor who has been in theater for the last four decades, recently adding to his resume, new career as model with ELB Agency. I imagined the setting taking place inside a luxury hotel in which he temporary lived in, observing him on different days of his life. Days of intense rehearsing, some in deep thoughts, and nights of drinking expensive bourbon dressed in his high fashion style. !~
Working with Tom, my second opportunity, is nothing short of a dream come true. Directing Tom is a seamless, enjoyable experience for me. We had an amazing time in this beautiful location, rich in colors, with its many rooms to capture the story from day to evening.
One of the highlights was Tom’s boisterous laughter when putting on his Gucci Mules. I said, “This is your supporting actor.”, he replies “No, I am the supporting actor”. We laughed out loud hysterically, especially as he was feeling the fur wrapping around his feet. !~
Such a pleasure working with you Tom. !~ Best wishes on signing on with Elb Agency. !~
