Featured Client: Mariano’s Tastemakers | Chicago Suntimes + Splash Magazine


fig films was comissioned by Splash magazine to create branded content for one of its advertisers; Mariano’s.
This is just one in a series of tastemaker films currently featured on the Mariano’s site.

Creative Director: James Gustin

Cover Ad photographed by fig photo photographer: Eric Rademacher

Filmed by: Kristen Sargeon and Megan Welham

Being part of an artist collective allows fig films to collaborate with team photographers. On this shoot our film team and photo team worked side by side with creative directors, advertisers and publishers. Once the shoot was complete the client walked away with a film and an ad shoot at the end of the day that has the same look and feel. It is no small feat to pull off a shoot this size, but we are pleased with the results. The Mariano’s team loved us so much they asked us back for another round a few months later. We are currently in post production on six more chefs.
