American photographer and filmmaker Alex Prager was commissioned by W Magazine to shoot a cover and story with fashion director Sara Moonves for their Cate Blanchett portfolio. Alex conceived a sci-fi idea of Cate as robot in a post-apocalyptic world of Cate robots. We worked with Alex to curate the perfect team in cinematographer Sam Goldie, production designer Arthur De Borman and stunt coordinator Zarene Dallas to bring her ideas to fruition and found the perfect location in a disused telecom building to play it out. Cate’s make-up artist Mary Greenwell worked with John Nolan, an SFX artist who we sourced and his prosthetic artist Sunita Parmar to create the robot effect in the final scene which was completed in post-production by Wes Anderson’s post VFX supervisor Jeremy Dawson. We managed production from concept to completion including edit by Matt Chesse and titles by Alex’s husband Simon Dargan. Music was composed by Ali Helnwein, a long-time collaborator of Alex’s in LA.
