“It’s a short story about a woman waiting for a man,” fashion photographer and director Joe Wehner tells us, he has just directed his first Ben Trovato film, “Waiting for…” . It was a long time coming, for six long months we have waited for the right project and the right girl to come by, and then Tantiana at Mc2 came to town. “She is new to NY and she needed a video showing her ability to be on camera, and since she has a natural body for lingerie so we just went from there,” Joe explains. “She was very easy to work with and because of her dancing background she understands the movement and the rhythm of the piece.”
There were only the two of them on the set, ensuring the connection between photographer and the subject that is needed for a sensual concept and approach.
Joe’s first assisting gig was for a fashion photographer, and that’s where he was introduced to the business, but his love for cinema was what pulled him towards shooting videos. Now he’s focusing on building his skills and develop as an artist. “Hopefully I will continue shooting more complex films and telling more stories.”
