ACNE x IKEA: "Live It"

This documentary filmed for IKEA follows Kelsey Phillips, a Chicago bike messenger, and shows the freedom that her chosen lifestyle provides her. The crew consisted of a partnership between Stockholm-based ACNE (Producer, DP, and Director), and Chicago-based Big Teeth Productions (Line Producer, Gaffer, AC, DIT, PA and 2 drone operators). Danny McCarthy line produced handling all domestic crewing, gear rentals, and client services as well all scouting and location services, casting, and camera car operation. Varying weather conditions and the need for constant motion put the crew in the challenging shoes of a bike messenger who must keep moving with no excuses. The IKEA PS 2017 line will be available February 2017.
