_what
film poster for the feature film, donnybrook.
_how
long-time collaborator and friend, tim sutton, asked us to create the poster for the world premiere of his 4th feature film, donnybrook. the film - based on the novel of the same name - offers a brutal insight into today's middle-american, working-class malaise. the poster was our attempt at offering a more abstract interpretation of the struggles within the film. the chain-linked fencing, to our eyes, looking like stick-figures grappling with each other in conflict. 

the second poster included here is based on an idea that tim had, and is an image that - whilst not wanting to spoil the story for anyone - will resonate particularly well with those that have seen the film.

_what
closing title sequence for the feature film, the song of sway lake.
_how
we met director ari gold at a party on his rooftop. in discussions about his forthcoming new film he revealed he was looking for a title sequence. sharing a love for the filmed title sequences of saul bass, we agreed to stay and touch and discuss things further. a few weeks later producer alexandra byer, cinematographer shabier kirchner and i found ourselves upstate filming by a lake. not long after that were cutting the sequence you see here into the film. the piece combines almost every aspect of what we do as a company, from record cover design through to film direction.
