Latest Tearsheets: Bertliz Shoot

I did the corporate themed photoshoot for the company Bertliz a while back but the finished products are finally coming out and the photographer was able to give me some digital tearsheets...yay! Berlitz is a language arts company that provides content and information to help people learn to speak different languages. They have language arts products available all over the world and this particular shoot was created to help people in other countries learn how to effectively communicate in the business world using common English vocabulary.

The shoot itself was really fun and laid back. We shot in an actual office building in San Francisco and there was a handful of us playing the part of a company conducting a business meeting. The photographer and the models were a lot of fun to work with and we joked around a lot. One scene involved me typing on my laptop while my "coworkers" were looking at my screen. In order to get some genuine expressions I would type the most ridiculous things in Word. I think I even saved that document to remind myself of the experience. There was another scene where we had some graphic charts taped to a whiteboard and I was the executive director talking about our sales quotas for the quarter. Sounds pretty boring, huh? Well, to liven it up, we came up with the concept of the "Man Muumuu" and jokingly discussed who would be the male face of our product. We decided on Brad Pitt...we got so into the scene that the photographer would barely hold her camera because she was laughing so much! Good times on set for sure.

So without further adieu, here are some of the shots I'm in. These are digital tearsheets but the photographer is working on getting the actual, physical tearsheets, which appear in a textbook that is one of the latest products being distributed worldwide by Bertliz (again, I'm no fashion model so sorry if these images don't involve any haute couture or editorial pizazz haha):
