「Aesthetic Relationship(特別な関係)」
この作品はフランスの監督 Céline Sciammaが、ある画家と被写体の貴族の女性の独特な関係性を描いた映画「Portrait of a lady on fire(邦題:燃ゆる女の肖像)」から着想を得て制作しました。


撮影監督のClaire Mathonによると、ドイツの画家 Caspar David Friedrichが操る照明のテクニックを取り入れているそう。登場人物の心情だけに目を奪われないように、できるだけたくさんの自然光を使うことにしたようです。


The inspiration for the story was the movie ‘Portrait of a lady on fire’, directed by the French director Céline Sciamma, about the unique relation between a painter and an aristocrat lady, who was painted by her.

The sparkle in our story is the symbol of the connection that is very unique, because it happens only with some people, not very often, but once it is found, it will never disappear.

I was impressed by the visual aspect of the movie as well.
The director of photography, Claire Mathon, said that she used the unique lighting technique that was typical for the painter Caspar David Friedrich.
She decided to use as much natural light as possible, to not distract the viewer from looking at the emotions of the characters.
The idea of creating a lighting setup was to get the impression that the light source is coming from the model's face, so it will bring more attention to her expressions.

We decided to complete the story with the shining accessories in the styling and sparkle elements in make-up.
