INTO – Prolific
Role: Video direction / Cinematography
Brief: Grindr’s online lifestyle magazine INTO commissioned Prolific as an exclusive video series to spotlight unique queer individuals who are game changing pioneers in their field.
Response: Working closely with Grindr’s producers to create intimate and revealing portraits of each character, the films were shot on location in NYC to create a familiar and comfortable setting for each subject. In them we meet Mickey Boardman, the editorial director and advice columnist for Paper Magazine. Shequida Hall, a classically trained opera singer, songwriter, and playwright who migrated from Jamaica to New York before finding a life in Drag. Matthew Camp, a former stripper and go-go boy who launched his own line of products inspired by his experiences in gay bars.
Outcome: 3 x video content for website and social platforms.
