At the time, Beatrice Martin was considering a role in Bruce McDonald’s upcoming movie and this session was to provide the materials we needed to create a compelling pitch to the financiers.

No time for wardrobe changes or pleasantries and barely time for a bit of make-up. The whole experience seemed like a flash-flood filling the studio with frantic energy. Just keep shooting I would say to myself, sometimes things don’t go as they’re planned and there is always a gift in that. The hardest part is to remember that in the moment.
