When Director Sandro Suppnig and Choreographer Lockhart Brownlie met last fall an idea was born: to create a film that taps into the Zeitgeist by featuring Los Angeles as a creative hub and provide a platform by artists for artists. The result - a retro-inspired, colorful video celebrating the Golden Globe-winning & Academy Award-nominated song “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” performed by Elton John and Taron Egerton.
On a recent visit to L.A. Model Management, the duo was inspired:
“I was galvanized by the LA Models roster of talent, many of which I have been following on social media for a while already. I proposed to the agency owner Heinz Holba to create a campaign involving music, movement and a stellar cast that would exclusively feature the all-inclusive talent on their roster from the models, actors and even influencers”, says Suppnig. Holba and his business partner, agency Vice President Karine Roman, loved the idea and agreed to produce the film.
Creative agency NEER Motion came on board and the film practically made itself.
“We really loved the Rocketman movie and its soundtrack. It felt like the score of so many of our lives,” states Lockhart Brownlie. “We simply were obsessed by the idea of connecting one of the songs to our video.”
