Having lunch with Albert. This is a photoshop elaboration on an advertising project shot some time back. The original was the immediate area around Einstein and chalkboard. It had some sort of a corny cut line like "you don't have to be a genius to use our [product]" The character actor was Jan Leighton. Jan specialized in doing historical characters. He had all his own wardrobe and did his own makeup for over a thousand persona's. I think we shot about six characters for the client. It was a lot of fun. He enjoyed "staying in character" and during the shoots I kept a running banter with him, pretending I was a reporter prying out the real story behind each famous figure. His Albert Einstein kept telling dirty jokes.
