When acclaimed director Ben Winston wanted an uber-awesome place to produce and direct boys band One Direction he chose non other than the private, secure and always accommodating Temple House Studios.
On June 12th, 2013 — One Direction — one of the world’s biggest pop groups — shot a music video at The Temple House — Miami Beach’s preferred location for photo/film production and private events.
All members of the UK “British Invasion” sensation, including Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson, made The Temple House their home for two days.
Known for their hit singles “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Live While We’re Young”, One Direction filmed their most recent video in between shows while on their “Take Me Home” tour.
Here at The Temple House, we were able to witness firsthand the incredible work ethic, talent and professionalism of One Direction.
The team was lead by internationally recognized director, Ben Winston, from the production firm Fulwell 73, and production company Luti Media, founded by Luti Fagbenle. Both groups are from London.
The entire technical team, including Los Angeles based Maz Makhani, a leading Director of Photography, executed the project flawlessly. The digital video is now being edited in London in preparation for global distribution in the upcoming weeks.
While we had insider information that One Direction would be inside The Temple House for two days, our lips remained sealed — as they always do for the privacy of our clients. But with the paparazzi and social media, the South Beach rumor mill caught fire.
By choosing The Temple House as the Miami Beach venue for their video shoot – One Direction have now joined other A-list celebrities who have used our stunning and secure location as the backdrop for their video studio work, photo shoots and private events – The Kardashian Family, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Dwyane Wade, Michael Jordan, Chris Brown, Emeril Lagasse, Pit Bull, Jamie Foxx, Flo Rida, Al Gore and the list goes on.
All of us at The Temple House thank One Direction, Luti Media and Ben Winston for the professionalism they brought to Miami Beach.
