Designed the interstitial titles for this animated film depicting Dorothy's return to Oz to help her old pals The Scarecrow, The Tin Man and The Cowardly Lion defeat the wicked Jester, voiced by Martin Short.
I art directed the interstitial titles for this trailer and animated the main title for the theatrical campaign.
The international trailers that I designed and animated the interstitial titles for that teased the concept of Dr. Who and time travel, relating it to Mr. Peabody's WABAC machine. The decision to tease Dr. Who for the international theatrical campaign was because Dr. Who is better known overseas.
"Never Let Me Go" is the film version of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel which TIME magazine named as "One of the best novels of the decade". This is the Domestic Trailer I produced for Fox Searchlight. I wrote the copy (which Fox Searchlight used in the poster campaign as well) and designed the graphics and main title seen in the trailer. The film has been well praised for its cast, directing, and deeply felt performances. An extremely compelling film about young lives cut short in a not-too-distant dystopian future.
A sweet, yet offbeat animated film from Finland originally made in the 70's and restored in 2010 as a stereoscopic 3D film and released theatrically in Finland. I produced the trailer, created the Stereoscopic 3D graphics (this is the 2D version), and wrote the copy. Max von Sydow narrates the feature.
MAX-Q's (my former company) trailer for a great feature documentary "The Boys" about the famous songwriting team, the Sherman brothers. The title comes from the fact that Walt Disney called the Shermans "The Boys". The documentary was distributed by Walt Disney Pictures and produced by the the sons on the Sherman brothers, Greg and Jeff Sherman, whom it was a pleasure to work with on the trailer. Gene Gamache and I produced the trailer. I designed and finished the titles in both 2D and Stereoscopic 3D. In 3D, the "magical lights", appeared both in front and behind the titles, and looked great in 3D space!
This is a Sales Trailer that Gene Gamache & I produced at MAX-Q for Greenestreet Films to demonstrate to distributors how this very funny, but offbeat and gross film could be marketed to a more general audience. We took a couple of liberties in this cut with the knowledge that we could take out some of the more tasteless material if the trailer was finished for theatrical distribution. I'm pretty happy with how it came out and I think Gene was too.
MAX-Q's Theatrical Trailer for the South African release of this film that deals with a gangster's rise and fall from power in Johannesburg.
Official Theatrical Trailer for Fred Durst's compelling directorial debut. A character study of three college students in the 70's. The lead role and title character is played by Jesse Eisenberg with an amazing breakout performance by Jason Ritter. I co-produced the trailer, wrote the copy, and designed the graphics. Jul 21, 2008
Official Theatrical Trailer for this engaging and charming film about a teenage boy (Lou Taylor Pucci) who steals a car on a whim and falls in love via cell phone with the car's owner, (Zooey Dechanel / New Girl). I produced, designed the title graphics and served as copywriter.
