Portland Maine Cinematographer Dean Merrill got gorgeous shots with the Panel Lantern in the Cumberland Club video promo.

Cumberland Club is a private social club in Maine that was looking for a promo video. In 8 years of shooting Dean has shot for Sony, Timberland, Ralph Lauren, Cole Hann, Reebok, Hewlett Packard, Vineyard Vines.

The project started when Director Jameson Smith asked Dean Merrill to come see the Cumberland Club one day. While enjoying a lovely old fashion, Jameson asked if Dean wanted to shoot this project with him. They started brainstorming ideas that would fulfill the Club’s needs, and they landed on the concept of following a character’s adventure through the rooms of the Club during a 5 minute break from a meeting.

Jodi Jones is an award-winning photographer, producer and creative director. She often has to work with tough deadlines and demanding clients that expect full collections to be shot in one day. Often she handles both still and video shoots together. Getting the perfect light for every shot throughout the day is crucial. “It’s a real challenge to work under pressure on very limited set up time and to shoot such a variety of looks in one day” states Jodi. “I have clients where I shoot 120 different clothing looks in just one day! This requires not only super speed, but a great team, and having a simple solution to create stunning lighting is paramount!” As with her latest Valentino shoot, this is further complicated when taking pictures outdoors from morning to night and dealing with the overpowering sun while keeping a consistent feel throughout. 

Ignjat Miletic started cinematography at age 15 shooting skateboarding videos.  Using his uncle’s old camera, with a battery that would die after 3 minutes created a challenge that taught him to plan his shots and think ahead. He quickly progressed into shooting music videos for Dutch music artists that eventually got played on TV. From the beginning of his career Ignjat said “No matter what camera you use, no matter the budget, I taught myself the importance of good lighting. I came to realize that light is the magic touch”.  Now Ignjat looks to create the most interesting frames using the camera and lights of his choosing.
