New York Fashion Week Shots from: Meg Urbani

I went to some great Runway shows for Fashion week this season. I love capturing runway shots in a way that feels like your are slowing down time, opposed to capturing time. Its something I used to play around with when I would shoot bands. All the lights and movement make for some interesting results.

Mark Mcnairy Spring Summer 2015 runway show. 

I always love this show because it has more of a party vibe, than a runway show. Guest get to watch the show with a Heineken in hand the venue, a cool wear house. The show always includes a fun mix, of Models Rappers, and family members.

I got to see THE FAULT IN OUR STARS! And it was perfect and amazing Okay?

Okay…

So I generally use this space to share my work, but yesterday I got to do something amazing, I got to see my absolute favorite book come life on the big screen! I was lucky enough to attended the very first fan screening of The Fault in Our Stars! I don’t think there has ever been a movie I have been more excited to see. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is my absolute favorite book, its beautiful, heartbreaking and just perfect. When I heard this was being made into a movie I was really excited, but I was  also really nervous. I went through various stages… excitement, criticism (at first I wasn’t sure about the casting, of course later I put my foot in my mouth because it was perfect!) nervousness, and then more excitement.

So what did I think of the film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars? ( I promise no spoilers) It was absolutely perfect. From start to finish there was not one moment that I did not think was perfect. It was as though they went inside my head when I was reading the book and put it on the screen in front of me. Even the things that weren’t necessarily described in the book, like Hazel’s house. I was like wow that’s Hazels house exactly how I pictured it. I will be the first to admit when the movie was first cast I had my reservations, which I think is normal when you love something so much, its hard to image someone doing your favorite characters justice or brining them to life. But I have nothing but praise for this cast! they brought each and every character perfectly to life. Ansel Elgort, was Augustus Waters, there is no one else who could have played Gus the way Ansel did. I was so blown away, he made me laugh and broke my heart. Shailene Woodley was the perfect Hazel Grace Lancaster. For me when the casting was first announced Shailene was the one I needed the most convincing for but like I said… foot meet mouth, because like Ansel She was Hazel Grace, and together they brought my two favorite charters to life beyond anything I could have dreamed of. Nat Wolff, was hilarious and perfect as Isacc and again, exactly how I pictured from the book. And really they couldn’t have picked a better pair for Hazels parents. Laura Dern and Sam Trammell were just perfect. And I can’t forget Mike Birbiglia as Patrick, and Willem Dafoe as Peter Van HoutenI know I keep saying PERFECT but honestly that is the only word to use here. This amazing team of people director Josh Boone, writers John Green (novel), Scott Neustadter(screenplay) took something that was so special and important to the fans of this book and brought it to life in the best possible way. 

(my reaction post TFIOS screening)

Seeing this movie with a room full of TFIOS fans who love the book as much as I do was a great experience. Never have I seen a room full of people openly express so many emotions. We laughed hysterically at the funny parts, and there were lots of funny parts! and then we sobbed, ugly cried, and sobbed some more. By the end of the film and I don’t know about everyone else but myself and those I was with felt like we had been hit by a mack truck with the range of emotions we experienced. And judging by the people around me I think its safe to say everyone felt that way. But that’s how the book makes you feel, so I think it’s safe to say they did their job perfectly! 

Also, John Green, Nat Wolff and Josh Boone came out to intro the film! Which Was an Awesome surprise!

Go See The Fault in Our Stars when It opens June 6th. And if you haven’t read the book by John Green grab a few boxes of tissues and go!
