The origin of our collaboration was a little bit different. STRV were looking for somebody who can produce content for them on a continual basis, but they were looking for a one-person show, and that I couldn't deliver.
At some point, an opportunity came along to help out with a testimonial for Boosted Board – a client of STRV. The guys had an interview shot in NYC (and some lifestyle footage as well) and wanted the testimonial to look good, add some b-roll from Prague offices and so on. That's when I came into the picture.
We've shot the pictures during one afternoon, it was a quick in-and-out shoot, only looking for stylized images. I have to hand it to STRV, they accommodated us in every way we asked. We had a great time even though the weather wasn't working so well for us.
After finishing the testimonial itself, I and my cinematographer saw that there was enough material to make kind of a lifestyle video. We pitched it to STRV, they liked it, so we went for it.
