Watch: Steve McQueen’s Romantic Burberry Ad Shot In 70mm. 

Mr. Burberry, filmed by Oscar-winning British director Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave, Shame, Hunger). The film is McQueen’s first commercial project (telegraph), shot in London, featuring actor and musician Josh Whitehouse and model and actress Amber Anderson. 

“It was different because I had to get the Mr. Burberry bottle in the film. What was different is that we shot it on 70-millimeter film. I loved the idea of having a situation about something so intimate, and to an extent innocent, but to reverse the lens and make it epic at the same time. It’s a big deal.”
