poster for the short film, the pass.
_how
melanie akoka put us in touch with writer / director pepi ginsberg. pepi's latest short film was headed to the cannes film festival and she wanted a poster to support it. the film is beautiful, subtle, emotionally complex and elegantly shot on film. it's about a kid looking for a place to swim on a hot day, and the delicate physical and emotional encounters he has along the way.

pepi wanted a poster that used the lake water as a metaphor both for the feeling being trapped and of course for the emotions beneath the surface in the film. the final result involved us making collage of a print-out and cut-out bust of the film's character placed into the translucent "waves" of a bio-degradable, plastic, draw-string bag.

_what
poster for the short film, bruised fruit tastes sweeter.
_how
jake kolton was introduced to us by matthew puccini. he wanted a new poster for his short film, bruised fruit tastes sweeter. the film was about to have its online premiere at nobudge.com

we talked on the phone for a while, throwing various ideas around. the moment we mentioned this idea of making a still life with two pears, peeled, drenched and positioned as if they were having sex, jake said that was it. soon we were buying and peeling heaps of pears, and photographing the scene you see here on the poster. 

it's a great film. if you have the means, do watch it via the link below.

_what
poster for the feature film, futra days.
_how
director ryan david reached out to us in the hope that we'd create the poster and titles for his new feature film, futra days. the film is a deep psychological, psychedelic trip that takes a rather dickensian approach to the larger existential questions. the poster you see here was one of several ideas we pitched. long-standing collaborator john delucca brought his typical brilliance to the fore and took care of the lion's share of the work here.
