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.
music video for the nashville-based band, the protomen
executive producer john la valle approached us with idea of making a film of a section of the protomen's second record, act II. the band chose light up the night as the song, and we approached collaborator matt sundin to co-direct the project with us. development of the project took some years and the end result you can see here. a testament to the band and everyone else involved, the film pays homage to many of the things that inspired us to do the work we do today, whilst delivering a particularly serendipitous socio-political commentary.
