After finishing 'An Obsession', director Sandro SUPPNIG c/o 1st Unit from New York produced another fashion film - 'The Necklace Affair'. And once again, love itself is the subject of the production. In terms of visuals, Sandro was inspired by Jean Cocteau and Italian cinema classics. Mican Film produced the project.

'The Necklace Affair' features the beautiful Vanessa Hegelmaier, male model Ferdi Sibbel and Academy Award – nominee and Sundance-winner Oliver Hirschbiegel ('The Downfall', 'Five Minutes of Heaven'). The outfits were contributed by Missoni, Yves Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Bottega Veneta, Chloe and Maison Martin Margiela. NY-based Norwegian jewellery designer Linn Lømo provided the jewellery.

The name allures to the famous 'Necklace affair' – a fraud scandal that happened on the French court, in which Marie-Antoinette was allegedly involved and is considered her first step towards the inevitable guillotine.

Sandro was born in Austria and studied at the Universite Paris Dauphine as well as the UCLA School for Film, Theatre & Television in Los Angeles. In 2010, he founded the production company Magellan Films Inc. and lives in New York, where he produces commercials and music videos.

GoSee met the director in the studios of New York post-production company Stairway9 by Ethel Rubinstein, where he was busy finalising 'The Necklace Affair'.

His new music video 'Take me' for NY electro artist Backroom Students featuring Diego Miguel will launch this week.

Sandro, who has not lost his typical Austrian charm despite living the hectic big city life, also presents 'An Obsession'. The black & white drama about unfulfilled desire and secret obsessions stars German top model Katrin Thormann alongside French actor David Kammenos ('Transporter 3', 'The Empire of Wolves' with Jean Reno).

What we might expect from him next? He is currently working on his first short film for the cinema. It is a collaboration with French producer David Barrot. We will cover his progress here on GoSee of course. By the way – Sandro is represented in Germany by Tempomedia.
