HBO | “Daddy” | 7:10 (short film) | art direction + titles
Director: Sid Karger
Sid Karger is an adored former partner of mine, so I was totally psyched to collaborate on this HBO-financed GLBT Short Film Competition winner. Sid’s film (about an unusual one-night stand) fared superbly on HBO OnDemand + MTV LOGO and screened at more than a dozen festivals. I was credited as Art Director and Title Designer, but my contributions were many — from location scouting to baby casting and producer procuring to how-to-convey-that-a-button-has-flown-off-a-shirt cinemtography meister. The final edit (this ain’t it) showcased my titles better, with properly saturated colors. Credits typographically highlight every "Y" with baby pink and baby blue, a detail that will make chromosomal sense after viewing the entire short.
