Kazuo Ishiguro, the author of "The Remains of the Day" and "Never Let Me Go" was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature today.

I was privileged to have produced the Theatrical Trailer for the Mark Romanek’s film version of "Never Let Me Go" for Fox Searchlight at MAX-Q with Gene Gamache. Gene's sensitive and emotional trailer cut masterfully tells the deeply emotional story of a dystopian future where young adults are raised, groomed and "harvested" for the sole use of this society’s callous and humanistically disconnected privileged class.

Roger Ebert gave this film four out of four stars and wrote, “…a meditative, delicate film… a good movie, from a masterful novel”. This is a touching and deeply disturbing film that I would challenge anyone to watch and not shed at least one tear.

Never Let Me Go - Domestic Trailer

"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.
