Celebrity Beauty director Jim Sonzero directs three new spots for L’Oreal

Buenos Aires,  July 2015 – Celebrity Beauty director Jim Sonzero directs three new spots for L’Oreal. The spots, called RT5, feature three international beauties – Josefina Montane from Chile, Luisana Lopilato from Argentina and Taliana Vargas from Colombia. In the TVC’s Sonzero shows how RT5 repairs damaged hair and leaves it looking incredible.

“The overall look I was going for was modern, optimistic, upbeat and glamorous without being pretentious or unrelatable. There is a freshness to the lighting. John Perez, the cinematographer, who I have worked with my whole career, totally delivered. The girls look amazing and fresh and the hair is “next level”. They are iconic and approachable.”

Known for his ability to make talent feel comfortable, Sonzero is able to extract their best possible performances. 

“As a director I create a sacred connection of trust with the talent so they feel comfortable and relaxed and can do their best work. When this trust is created the artist feels protected and knows I will take a bullet before I would let them look less than their absolute best.”

Killzone 3 Featuring A Level Of Scale Unseen On The PS3 Thus Far

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention another thing about that cannon and indeed the game as a whole: it sounds fantastic. There’s a sort of unnatural, overwhelming buzz that erupts from the cannon when it lays down a steady stream of death, punctuated by an ominous charging sound before it’s actually unleashed. Killzone 2 was great as demonstrating a kind of controlled cacophony, mixing copious explosions with the muffled accents of the Higs themselves and staccato weapons fire.
