5.30am My alarm goes o . I hit snooze and sleep a bit more. 5.50am I hop in the shower to wake up be­fore my car ar­rives to take me from my apart­ment in down­town Vancouver, Canada, to the film stu­dios where we’re shoot­ing the new Ar­mani Code Homme cam­paign video. I pop into a co ee shop en route; I’m a dou­ble espresso guy. 7am I ar­rive on the shoot, greet ev­ery­one and grab a plate of ba­con and eggs for break­fast. Then I head to my trailer for hair and makeup and to go through the stylist’s rail. I love wear­ing a sharp suit. 8.20am It’s time to start film­ing. Shoot­ing an ad­vert is so di er­ent to a film: it’s very at­mo­spheric, ev­ery­thing is in slow mo­tion (ev­ery­body al­ways looks bet­ter in slow mo­tion) and you know they’re go­ing to use killer mu­sic. 12.25pm Now I get a quick break for lunch. I grab a chicken salad and take the op­por­tu­nity to read a lit­tle. I’ve just fin­ished David Mitchell’s op­er­atic fan­tasy The Bone Clocks (Hod­der & Stoughton; R318), and now I’m start­ing a bru­tal spy novel by Charles Cum­ming called The Trin­ity Six (Harper­collins; R222). 1.10pm Back to work. We’re do­ing two short films for the cam­paign; the first one is very moody and dark, the second is warmer and lighter. It’s great work­ing with our di­rec­tor of pho­tog­ra­phy Philippe Le Sourd, who was nom­i­nated for an Os­car for the 2013 movie The Grand­mas­ter. 7pm Film­ing is done for the day, so I get to fit in a quick work­out be­fore I go out for the evening. I’m headed to a great Ital­ian restau­rant, Cincin, for red wine and pasta with friends. 11.55pm I get a taxi home and, when I’m there, I have a shower (I’m not a fan of baths) and then jump straight into bed, ready for an­other 5.30am start on day two of the Ar­mani shoot.
