The Purple Rose

Main Title Design, Edit and Animation  Wassat Productions

Director Jodi Binstock of Zombie Nation and Web Therapy fame approached us to craft a title sequence for her first film in the Purple Rose series. Our editorial approach was to tease more than reveal - raise more questions than answers. The design process led us to make subtle glitches in the footage and title that gave hits of purple color while setting the viewer on edge.

In the Grey

Logo Design and Title Sequence  World Why Productions

This was a dream project because it was a true collaboration. Jenna came with a show concept and as she formulated what her vision for “In the Grey” - we formulated a brand platform that reflected her goals. This was first visualized with a logo and then brought to life in animation through a title sequence that vocalized months of dialogue. The result reflects her brand across all media.

In the Grey is an interview series that explores the unexpected sides of people and topics we think we know. Moving beyond a “black or white” perspective, the show reveals life’s complexities, what truly defines us, and what ultimately connects us. Peeling back all the layers, that’s where we find In the Grey.

Jenna Mack is the creator and host of the interview program, In the Grey. She is an experienced producer who was responsible for cultural segments on Charlie Rose, featuring renowned actors, writers, architects and designers. During that formative time at the acclaimed PBS broadcast, Mack’s vision for In the Grey took shape.

NY Ink

Main Title Sequence  TLC

Working in concert with the tattoo artists, we created custom graffiti art for each of the cast members that both reflect their personality and link them to the gritty, ink-stained streets of New York City. We directed, designed and edited the show open to follow Ami, the boss, as he returns to the city, collects his crew and leads them to the stoop of his shop. While this project wasn’t always easy, at least we didn’t have to adapt our designs for an elbow or a knee.

Barbershop

Main Title  Showtime

For Showtime’s adaptation of Barbershop we created a title sequence that celebrates the Barbershop as the cultural hub of the community. Collaborating with a barber that specializes in creative haircuts, we shot the process in action within a real Harlem barbershop. The space was a virtual hall of mirrors which provided a shooting challenge that really helped create the filmic style that makes this piece stand out.
