DIRECTOR'S LOUNGE presents SAAM FARAHMAND
Sit down for ten minutes and maybe consider switching to full screen. Here are four spots from the reel of director Saam FARAHMAND, which were featured in the Regielounge in September 2011 (among others).
We kick things off with a 2008 spot for Danish traditional chocolatier Anthon Berg – 'Sense it'. The clip was realised by the DDB Denmark agency and the song 'Fortune' is by the band 'Little Dragon', Swedish neighbours.
The second masterpiece is the video for Tom Vek’s song 'Aroused'. The message: “Your language, your call, your history, your graphic, your art, your energy, your sound ...." and definitely our love! Other things we learned from the spot: smokers are the better performers. Tom Vek's real name is Thomas Timothy Vernon-Kell (born in London on the 10th of May 1981) and he is an autodidact multi-instrumentalist musician. tomvek.tv
The British director was also first choice to create the Alexander McQueen 'Ghost' PUMA AW2009 spot. Action in 16:9! The director, actors and the equipment can keep up with even the highest speeds.
The next stop is a rather frolicking and musical one – the video for 'Twin Flames' taken from the 2010 album 'Surfing the Void' by the four-piece British indie-rock-pop band the Klaxons. Another example of an independent video production that wins our hearts. We tip our hat to Saam! klaxons.net
