A Look Into The Best Post Production Business In The World: Box Studios

Pascal Dangin is the founder and chief of Box Studios, a retouching house based out of NYC. They're known for retouching some of the world's best photographs, some of which grace Vogue and Vanity Fair. He also works with Annie Leibovitz and Steven Meisel. Unofficially, he's credited as being the world's most sought after retoucher in the industry. He is also very mysterious and so is Box. Here, we get an in depth look at what goes on behind the scenes at Box. 

Mike Saunders shot this video and it gives us a look into the mystery that is Box studios and the new direction they are taking the studio in. From stills to motion pictures, it shows us his footprint in the realm of commercials and movies.

This video is not only about retouching, in fact it has almost nothing to do with it, but what it does show is some of the beginnings of Pascal's work, along with what he is up to now.

If you've never heard of Mr. Dangin before, you can read more about him here:

Funny.. but really I don't care if he looks like Yoda,he is a brilliant retoucher//

What i am saying is that his Look is irrelevant ,he is on fstoppers because he is a talented retoucher,not a model. 

It's not a retoucher's job to care about how people look, it's their job to follow instructions.

 Some of the smartest people are considered some of the ugliest people.
It does not matter how one looks.
 It matters what one does.

Pascal is THE Godfather of photoshop! 

Pascal's Wikipedia entry sounds like it was written by him.

For those interested, the brilliant background music is "Chapel Site" by "Pretz". 

Is there any chance to make this video public again? I would be very much interested in it :)
