Tuesday Crush: Nazanin Mandi

I don’t remember how we stumbled upon Nazanin Mandi’s video here at Panic Films HQ but I’m glad we did. Aside from being the model girlfriend of musician Miguel, she’s Persian, Spanish, Mexican, Native American, and quite an accomplished model. Check out the video directed by Solmaz Saberi and enjoy the gallery we assembled below. Happy Tuesday!

Paralyzed Veterans of America Sports and Recreation video

I don’t often post my professional work on here but when I do, it means something for me. I spent a good part of June traveling the country shooting video of tournaments for Paralyzed Veterans of America to make the above promo video. It was both inspiring and fun. I’ve made some friends making this video and hopefully it will inspire more injured veterans to get involved and get into sports like wheelchair basketball or fun stuff like pool and bowling. If you don’t know about the PVA and their sports program, learn more here.

Side note: Look closely at the reflection on James’ sunglasses in the thumbnail and you’ll see me shooting the video!

Tuesday Crush – Rosie Huntington Whiteley

This week our Tuesday Crush is Rosie Huntington Whiteley. She was on our minds after re-watching Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which she was in. Her next film is Mad Max: Fury Road which is due out on May 15th, 2015. We’re obviously huge Rosie fans here at Panic Films HQ so it was about time she was our Tuesday Crush.
