While working on projects, stories sometimes develop in my head, I get inspired by the model or the assignment or whatever hits me at the time.

He had a very powerful presences and with a flick of the eyebrows his expression could turn from affable to full assault which felt like a great old school negotiation. The only thing missing was a cigarette burning…
Working with a high key graphic cinematic theme, I followed Mahir through a failed negotiation barely averting an alteraction. It ends with him walking away with the upper hand.
