Ethereal Styled Shoot at District 28

Back in ear­ly May, Alexan­dra from Blush & Bowties approached us to do a wed­ding styled shoot at Dis­trict 28. She had gath­ered an amaz­ing team of Toron­to wed­ding ven­dors and want­ed us on board to shoot some cre­ative ele­ments while doc­u­ment­ing how it all came togeth­er. There were so many things we loved about the project from that first talk — the blend­ing of indus­tri­al and ethe­re­al ele­ments, the incred­i­ble “white dome” room, and the sim­plic­i­ty of the con­cept, which would real­ly let the spaces speak for them­selves — so we set out to cre­ate a short piece that high­light­ed these ele­ments while telling the sto­ry of the shoot itself.

Instead of putting togeth­er a mon­tage of the com­plet­ed sets and dec­o­ra­tions or com­mit­ting to a behind-the-scenes video, we inte­grat­ed each approach into a film that paints a full pic­ture of the entire process. We tease a few shots of the final set at the begin­ning (estab­lish­ing the what and the where), and then we go straight back to the draw­ing board to see how every­one on the team made it hap­pen (the how), and Alex’s nar­ra­tion explains the con­cept behind the entire shoot (the why).

The final prod­uct was the cul­mi­na­tion of so many tal­ent­ed indi­vid­u­als’ work from Toron­to and the west end, and as cin­e­matog­ra­phers, it was a dream to shoot in each space as it trans­formed.
