A Letter To My Dad’ with Ian Wright | Gillette UK

This Father’s Day, Gillette is partnering with former professional footballer, broadcaster and Dad, Ian Wright, as he reveals the role models in his life and how they’ve played a central role in making him be the best he can be. Telling stories of his early years and meeting the man who now calls him a son as a result of the relationship they shared when at Arsenal, Ian has inspired many – including his sons Shaun and Bradley – to aim high and always be the best version of themselves.

DOP Claudio Napoli on his lens choice:
“ When I was approached to shoot this, the intention was to give a cinematic look for a personal story and an emotional narrative for a commercial. The warmth and organic quality of the “Cooke Look” was the right choice for the scenes set in the house. At the same time shooting a lot in exterior the Cooke Anamorphic/i Primes allowed me to really portrait the emotional moments of Ian Wright reading the letter, especially the 50mm and 75mm, having the background nicely falling out thanks to the anamorphic shallow DOF. The 25mm was essential for the scenes in the bathroom and especially in the car, I found it great to a have a wide angle lens which can still separate nicely the character from the background, and not worrying about distortions too.”
