|So how did the Honkey Kong series come together? All it took was a team of three to get the job done, each member of the group actually featuring in the campaign. “Instead of bringing professional models with us, we knew it was more about the feeling of the images. We also knew that a large crew would only slow us down.”
So from the heights of Hong Kong’s rooftops, the crew became the characters traversing the newly envisaged terrain, the expansive view making the shots all the more remarkable.
As Christian reflects on the making of this project, the biggest challenge was actually gaining access to different rooftops and getting permission to shoot from them. Once up there it was smooth sailing, using the Nikon D3s to not only create their video game world, but to capture the often unseen details of the Hong Kong cityscape.
