So by now this is old news, but since this is a new blog, I thought I’d share. When I first got to LA, I got a phone call from a production company that wanted me to come in to meet with them and talk about doing credits for a film. I had no idea what kind of film they were talking about – I assumed it was some small budget independent that may never be seen.
When I walked into the offices of Prologue Films, I realized that this might be a more legit movie. I met with Danny Yount, the creative director, and he told me that they needed handwritten credits for the second Sherlock Holmes movie – A Game of Shadows. We had a very brief meeting and I went back to my office to begin working on something to show them. They loved it immediately and after a couple of rounds of revisions, my work was done. Then they worked their magic on it to create the fantastic sequence that you see at the end of the movie.
A few months later, I found out that it won a TDC award for Title Design – pretty cool!
In NYC I did a lot of work in fashion – my clients included Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Derek Lam, and Balenciaga. I’m hoping that in LA, I will be doing more work for movies, commercials and television, since it’s pretty cleat that’s what drives this town. You know, “when in Rome…”
