For episode 1 of ‘Place Portraits’ we took to the streets of Paris. At Broaden, neither of us had explored the city in great detail before, and especially not in the depths of winter. We filmed the whole video in one day, taking it in turn to shoot film and capture the process on video too. With the final edit, we wanted to communicate that sense of exploration and ground-level discovery that we’d enjoyed so much on the shoot day. We also created a custom animation which serves as a reoccurring introduction across all episodes in the series.
