Epic CNN debate promo incorporates high res portrait photography

CNN has released an intense new promo for next week’s Republican Debate.

Teaming up with photographer Nigel Parry, who photographed the GOP candidates using RED cameras with dramatic lighting complete with moving shadows, the spot combined a hard-hitting music bed along with large, bold letters to create something that could easily pass as a promo for your favorite TGIT show.

The dark, intense images of candidates is combined with a softer, yet somehow mysterious background of reds, blues and violets with subtle light particles.
