CHE DOLCE AMORE!

What sweet love! Taking full advantage of the Italian life, Josh brings on the charm with his sweetheart, Mery.

INSPIRATION

Romance in the air! This 45-frame scene from Ratatouille (Pixar Animation Studios) caught my eye with the beautifully warm, fall colors of Paris and late afternoon-early evening sunlight.


Ratatouille was the first film I saw in theaters when I moved to Italy to live La Dolce Vita. I thought it was apropos to set my scene in an Italian piazza.

TIMELAPSE
