Fashion Video Production, NYC: Lee Milby

Fashion Video shot for Coco + Liz. This was a one-day dual fashion photo and video shoot, where I brought double the equipment! It was a hectic day, but the results were great and everyone on crew was wonderful to work with. We shot against and around the Bowery Mural. The garden was actually right across the street from it, and kudos to our model who was brave enough to Read More

Vincent Cooper Fashion Video

For this video, I chose a rather desolate part of Brooklyn to shoot. The sunset allowed for nice bright shadows, to properly display his skin and form. I’m a fan of backlighting, which was abundant during our first shoot. My instinct is always to give imagery a cinematic edge. As we were walking around, I saw so many beautiful shots that couldn’t be included in the final vid because they Read More

River Melt Performance

The following videos are documentation of a performance experiment that Markitecture and I (Lee Milby) executed in Alabama, in relation to Markitect’s architecture thesis project at the Cooper Union. Art alumnus Celeste Pfau operated camera. I’m naturally drawn to water, ever since I swam in the ocean as a baby in Hawaii. I cannot fathom what it’s like for people to have trouble swimming or not know how. To me Read More

south korea ferry tragedy prayer

Prayer for South Korea

I wish I could simply scoop them out of the water, with my bare hands. A meditation on the South Korea Ferry tragedy. I’ve been watching the news. Saw the “dive” footage with murky water and more mysteries than answers– a vague silhouette of an arm. I have read the final text messages of students, and seen interviews with distraught parents and relatives. I imagine myself floating for hours, days, Read More
