closing title sequence for the feature film, the song of sway lake.
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.
record sleeve for the nashville-based band, makeup and vanity set.
continuing our long-standing devotion to offering makeup and vanity set the best packaging we can, we were very happy that he canned our initial attempts at making a cover for up and vanished's second season. it was in throwing out all of our original ideas that we stumbled across this idea for cover you see here now. the burnt photograph and the flower both represent elements of the podcast's true crime narrative and they collage together to further expand upon that same narrative.
seville international commissioned us to design a poster for their forthcoming scandinavian feature film, zoo. after pitching a series of ideas they settled on two photo concepts that suggested, with a wink, what the film might be about. we turned to long-time collaborator jeff brown and put together a photoshoot here in new york that echoed certain scenes in the film.
