Rob Ulitski - 4th Nov 2020

Hector Dockrill directs a powerful promo for Bakar's 1st Time. 

The peaks and troughs of young love are studied through fly-on-the-wall, sporadic vignettes, aided by Rich Woolway's adrenaline-pumping edit. 

DoP Jaime Ackroyd uses intimate framing juxtaposed with jarring camera techniques, to take the viewer on a visual journey through a modern day relationship.
