Karan Kapoor shoot stills and video for Royal Caribbean "Barbie Experience"

September 13 2012
Karan Kapoor shoot stills and video for Royal Caribbean "Barbie Experience" Karan recently spend time on board the "Allure of the Seas" - the world's largest cruise liner - to shoot both video and stills for his latest commission from client Royal Caribbean. For the "Barbie Premium Experience", the Royal Caribbean cruise liner brand will be going pink, as you can see from Karan's shots here. The "Barbie Premium Experience" will launch in January 2013, and Karan's shots and video will be used to promote the experience. (Read more after the images.) This isn't the first time Karan has shot for Royal Caribbean: he also worked on this big-budget advertising campaign for the cruise brand, with his images transforming NYC's Times Square shuttle into a cruise ship holiday experience during February 2012. For this job, Royal Caribbean wanted video footage and stills photography to promote their "Barbie Experience", aimed at girls aged 4-11. "It was a crazy shoot," says Karan, "and I had to shoot the stills and video at the same time. With lots of child actors and models involved in the shoot, it was very busy as you can imagine. Each shot had to be replicated three times to include a little girl from each of the three ethnicities which Royal Caribbean wanted represented. It was pretty crazy!" The shoot was held on the Allure of the Seas (the biggest cruise ship in the world) as it set sail from Miami and around the Western Caribbean. "I didn't get to see any of the sights," says Karan. "In fact, on a ship of that size, you don't even necessarily see the ocean! The cruise ship is so huge, and we spent all of our time inside." And here's the video which Karan shot as part of this job [vimeo clip_id="49242584" height="" width="680"] This was a direct job which didn't involve an agency. "It was nice to work with this client again," Karan says. Look out for a future blog post on the shoot he did for Dreamworks.
