Max Schneider gave an interview to Swide Magazine about the shooting of theDolce&Gabbana AW10 campaign with Madonna in New York last May.
Not only is he modelling but he also released his first album last month “First encounters”. www.absolumentmadonna.fr
He was lucky enough to be selected to pose with Madonna in front of Steven Klein’s camera for the Dolce&Gabbana AW10 womenswear campaign.
Swide - How did it all happen (the agency, the contract with Dolce & Gabbana for their AW10 campaign...)?
Max Schneider - A while ago, the talent group ‘A Street Cat Named Desire’ (ASCND) approached me for some editorial works. However, these projects did not work out for me so ASCND continued to search for other opportunities. Earlier this year, ASCND contacted me to work on a Dolce & Gabbana advertising campaign featuring Madonna and directed by Stephen Klein. From then, everything went very fast. I attended the casting on a Friday, was selected and got on the set the following Wednesday. I was told that I have been chosen by Madonna, herself, which was surreal to me.
Swide - What will you remember from this experience?
Max Schneider - I felt very relaxed and comfortable being around Madonna. She made me feel completely at ease. Domenico (Dolce) helped me a lot by supporting me and telling me that I was a “very nice actor”. The whole team was very professional.
