I was recently helping out GuavaPass to get down some photos for their Green Morph Campaign. They give out 1-week free access pass to fitness studios in town. It was one of the craziest ideas to perform, promote or just even walk around anywhere with that green suit. They’ve chosen the busiest lunch hours for the entire act. I must give them thumbs up. These two ladies dressed up in green had made it so easy and yet entertaining. It’s not something we local Hong Kongese would dare trying. It’s why Hong Kong is still great, full of diversity.
It was quite a social experiment for me to see how the pedestrians react. I saw smiling faces, shocking faces, lots of cellphone photo taking. We’ve got everyone’s attention.
Besides the yoga poses at the traffic crossings, how about posing by the British artist Antony Gormley’s naked man statues in town. We’ve also bumped into two food delivery company muscats – a kangaroo and a panda. We were everywhere from the ground level down to subway station, come back up to shopping malls.
This was my first time doing a shoot side by side with a videographer. I had no idea who he was until we spoke at the last stretch of the shoot. I learned that he shoots videos/stills for living, he’s also a short film maker/director and one of the team members of a rooftopping group – Exthetics. Their extreme rooftop footprints can be found on their instagrams too. So breathtaking!
