Nike Mercurial Victory Details and Frame Grabs
Usually, personal projects go one of two ways — they either succeed or fail, and there’s not much in between. I took a lot of risks creating this project, and pushed myself to try new techniques. Why shoot if you’re not going to take risks?! I am so thrilled that this video came out as beautifully as I’d pictured it in my head.
I always have to do things differently, so I shot the video to play in reverse. This meant that the entire video had to be done in one take. Once I started shooting, there could be no breaks, no cuts, no stopping. A slight bump of the table or tripod meant shoot over. There’s nothing like pressure to get the blood flowing!
