Berlin-based people photographer KATY OTTO realized poster motifs which were created as part of the film shoot by Director Carlos Vin Lopes and the film production company The Worldrooms with Jonathan Steinhardt. "Cooperation between Jonathan and Carlos goes back to 2015 and now consists of five productions. Plus, the production of a commercial is planned and scheduled for March. Working with Carlos is always something special because he tells his stories very aesthetically. During the shoots, he stages wonderful images and moods. Creating the posters according to his ideas is very easy for me because we speak the same language," photographer Katy Otto tells GoSee.
Katy was supported in realizing the poster motifs by cameraman Yuri Salvador, who was also responsible for the perfect light. Katy also photographed the accompanying images for the music video of singer Kovac's "The devil you know" in cooperation with The Worldrooms. Warner Music then used her motif for the cover of the single. Find more photos from the shoot by Katy here on GoSee and on her website.
