One of my favorite events each year, The Bigger Picture Show is a great night of celebrating design and film. It's a great chance to work in whatever style I want and be truly free to create. I'm honored to continue being invited and happy to help raise some funds for a really great local festival.
Even as it ushered in the Pierce Brosnan era of Bond and had some pretty amazing stunts, the only reason anyone really remembers GoldenEye was for the groundbreaking, world-changing N64 video game. I acquired an N64 controller from a friend, painted it gold and then wrangled some photographer friends to produce a ridiculously overworked lighting setup. Worth it.
Notorious - recreated Biggie's epic floral arrangement from his funeral procession by hand before photographing for the poster.
I also spent a lot of time at Hobby Lobby
Rain Man - imagined what if each character was illustrated in the style of playing cards
Eyes Wide Shut - There is an interesting balance of elegance and ugliness in this film. I felt like working by hand with ink and watercolor would fit that feeling.
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou - the theme for this year was character portraits
