Brian Oglesbee, Julie Taymor, The Tempest

First of all friends! Watch the HD trailer for this gorgeously shot movie here! Brian, this is a celebration post for the crew!

A while ago I worked with Brian Oglesbee, Julie Taymor and Lynn Hendee closely on a trial shoot for the latest New York Film Festival centre piece “The Tempest”. For those of you that don’t know about this story…. you should refer to this post of mine for the back story on how I know Brian and got to meet Julie.

This post was made when the movie was still in production actually! I Just saw the film at NYFF. It was also invited to be a part of the Venice Film Festival closing! Julie Taymor is a driven and inspiring person and Brian is an incredible photographer. To see the two talents come together on big screen was positively an unforgettable experience! Here are some images from the night out and heartiest congrats to Brian and Julie to see their hard work come to such beautiful fruition!

Brian Oglesbee and Julie Taymor, Lincoln centre, NYC

Also pictured below is Kate Boulter, on the left standing with yours truly in the centre and the boss man Brian Oglesbee on the right outside the Lincoln Centre at the Tempest’s premiere night. Kate to inform you all has repetitively been photographed by Brian all through his book Aquatique which I proudly own and highly recommend so contact the man himself at That night when Julie saw us she exclaimed in delight when she saw kate, “There’s our Ariel!!”  Ariel, as many of you know is one of the main characters from the The Tempest played by the all too charming Ben Whishaw in the movie. Kate however did all the stand in shots for Ariel when we tested for this shoot in Brian’s studio upstate and it was clear that Julie T like us was a great admirer of miss Kate’s performance. I found out first handedly how easy it is to love Kate, my post to follow will be about Kathryn Boulter’s powerful presence in my Shower Series.
