What has now become an Oscar tradition, for the third year in a row, Mark Seliger and Instagram teamed up to give us an intimate look at the glamorous events at the annual Vanity Fair party. Hollywood’s biggest night and its biggest stars were immortalized in Seliger’s custom-built studio that was set up next to the event (which I heard served In-n-Out burgers. Yum).
The 14-second time-lapse below shows quite a team at work to get the simple set ready for stars like Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani and more.
Here are a few of my favorites, as seen on the Vanity Fair Instagram account:
Mark’s work is simple and beautiful and a large part of it (not surprisingly) is due to his lighting. A few years ago, Mark shared some of his lighting tips and tricks in the following Profoto video below. Check it out.
