Chris Palmer in his last shoot
Chris Palmer, from Gorgeous, London, appears in his own last shoot for the Saatchi & Saatchi Young Director’s Showcase promotion. A warning before you watch however. This spot does contain a black beanie, cross dressing, oranges and lemons, golf and a bit of violence. In fact it looks as though it was a bit dark for the YouTube censorship board.
Chris Palmer is directing aristocrats in an warehouse, mostly concerned about the colour of the oranges on set. He doesn’t notice the young upstart who’s lurking on the margins with a lethal weapon.
The Last Shoot was developed at Saatchi & Saatchi, London, by executive creative director Paul Silburn, creative director Pablo Videla, art director Howard Green, copywriter Nicola Ridley and agency producer Joe Bagnall.
Filming was shot, or shooting was filmed, by Chris Palmer via Gorgeous, with director of photography Ben Seresin.
