A very low budget Japanese commercial.
We shot on Super 16 with my re-built Cookes and a Schneider "Classic Soft" filter, I think that it was a quarter.
It was only the second commercial that I'd shot with the Fuji 250T and whilst in the past I'd loathed the skin-tones that Fuji produced I really like the new range of films.
I'd like to think that the reason her skin looked so good was my photography but in reality it's probably because she was 14 years old.
Lit with lots of very large very soft sources.
