It's always a pleasure working with the James Hotels, but this one was extra special as we featured 99 year old #YogaMaster and remarkable woman @taoporchonlynch! The James Hotel NoMad hosted an intimate evening talk with Tao where she shared some of her incredible stories and insights. The following morning Tao led a group yoga session in NYC's Madison Square Park where her students were treated to a one of a kind experience courtesy of Tao & The James.

In lieu of Super Bowl 51 we revisit one of our favorite projects of the last few year. "Training For The Field" is a series of NFL Pre-Season team segments sponsored by Reebok. Co-Produced & Shot by Ray Mendez for CBS/Roadside Entertainment.
2 weeks, 9 NFL training camps and many "Sky Miles" later we had some killer sizzle pre-season pieces. This is one of our favorite. Guess it's easy to tell who we're rooting for...
#ElectionDay has arrived here in the U.S.A. It’s been a Presidential race that no one will soon forget. In many ways it’s changed the political landscape and the role that media plays in it for good.
That said, it was a great pleasure for us to collaborate with fellow creative agency Fisheye Creative Solutions from India on their TE-A-ME tea campaign here in NYC. Even our South East Asian counter parts got in on the fun (and the politics) on this one. Check out this “tongue in cheek” commercial that has now garnered close to 2 million views across multiple online outlets.
We take great pride out of creating multi layered programming and a 360 degree approach to our projects. So when The James Hotel came to us for their culinary event with #DBK & #BlackTapNYC we married live art, film, and social media influencers with great food, drinks and an incredible NYC location.
Parlour Productions produces and shoots this fast paced and highly stylized piece for the W Hotels of New York featuring its rising star W Insider - Tanya DeCosta. Follow along as she takes us on an spectacular jouney through a day in the life of an Insider.
A W Hotel Insider is a connected and "in the know" staff member that plays an integral role in their guest's experience. This is a person that knows the who's who and all of the happenings within that particular city. At the W Union Square in NYC Tanya DeCosta is exactly this person.
Featuring : Misshattan, Rebel Bingo NYC, Miss Lily's and the Orley design team.
Follow the Parlour Productions Team as we capture the essence of New York City and what it takes to be a W Hotels Insider.
We couldn't agree more... That's why we figured we'd give you a peek at some of our favorite moments of 2014 as Parlour's cameras roam the Globe. From the hillsides of Oman, to the waters of the Caribbean, and from the peaks of the Swiss Alps, to the streets of NYC and back again. Enjoy!
Parlour Production's Andrey Piontkovski recently found himself trekking to a hidden waterfall upstate New York in a torrential downpour with the lovely and talented Kissey, all for her new music video, “Melting Pot” The Eerie vibes of Kissey’s music needed to be complimented by the mysteries of the elements and the darker side of nature. Parlour was on hand to make the pieces come together and thanks to our brilliant crew, the vision became the reality.

Parlour Productions was on hand to capture the unveiling of our good friend and famed photographer David LaChapelle's new exhibition entitled "Land Scape" at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in NYC. The exhibition is comprised of two series: "Refineries" and "Gas Stations". As always LaChapelle pushes the envelope and dazzles us with spectacular imagery, but this body of work is unique in that it touches upon serious real World issues (e.g. disposability & peak oil) while showcasing them in a surrealist setting.
New York City Photographic legend Roxanne Lowit showcases her "Men In Make Up" exhibition at the M.A.C. Cosmetics event space in NYC.
