director dan carbone got in touch and asked us to check out a cut of his new documentary, phantom cowboys. we'd talked before about working together and it was this film's beautiful imagery and time traveling narrative that sealed the deal for us. we got to work putting together some ideas and after pursuing several quite different directions, we finally found truth in the colour separated and distorted treatment you see here.
actress / producer wendy vanden heuvel reached out to us after our work on i am a seagull, and sent us a copy of the athol fugard play, a lesson from aloes. after reading it we discussed with her at length the possibilities for a poster. the resulting image is one we'd conceived over the phone in our initial discussions, and that was photographed one chilly spring evening here in our studio in new york. photography by caspar, of maba ba, assisted by jeff brown.
redesign of the new york-based film journal, filmmaker magazine.
furthering the design concepts we established with issues 100 and 101, we this time took an accidentally out of focus, behind the scenes still from chloe zhao's the rider and used it to echo, amongst other things, the issue's refocussing on women filmmakers and the magazine's own logo treatment.
