Vincent Dixon for Saving the Music
From the moment he received the hand-drawn layouts from friend/Leo Burnett Paris CD Xavier Beauregard, Vincent was in like Flynn. This would be a passion project for UK-based audiophile company, dCS, that makes very high-end digital audio players. Save the Music was about how using their equipment you hear all the music, the purity of the music without all the grunge. The imagery would need to tell what happens when you don’t use their equipment.
Their collaboration resulted in the real talent portraits of a rock musician, a jazz trumpeter, and a pianist playing a grand piano who would be covered in ‘oil’. And with the exception of the piano which was a 3D model, Vincent managed every shot in camera; these striking images garnering him a 3rd Lucie Nomination. C’est la Vie.
