FINDING FOCUS (US, 2011; 81 min.)
Director: David Henri
Ryan, a mid-level fashion photographer who has crafted a comfortable career
shooting beautiful models, has ambitions for a more ambitious fine art
project, but fears no one will take him seriously.
Olivia is a last-minute substitute makeup artist on one of his shoots. At the
end of a long shooting day he tells her his art concept and she offers to help,
both as a model and as a makeup artist.
The two agree to partner on the project and soon develop a personal relationship
along with their professional work, which they document in ‘behind the scenes’ footage
as the creative process and their personal lives simultaneously evolve.
Cast: Carole Weyers, Chris Alvarado, Emma Docker
