True History of the Kelly Gang

Nothing you’re about to see is true. Utter madness and chaos. Trying to track shots that were so selectively macro-focused I couldn’t even figure out the perspective the background was supposed to be at. It drove me a bit mad and I crumpled spectacularly. Now…

The King

The more eagle-eyed among you may have already noted that this is pretty much exactly the same font and layout as David Michôd’s earlier film The Rover. To which we would both like to clarify, no, this is widely-tracked Garamond in grey text and not…

Judy & Punch

What a delight to work with Mirrah Foulkes on her unique and loopy first feature. Had to dial back a thou from my original pitch of complete adherence to contemporary design and layout (contracts, y’knaa) but still managed to slip in a lot of medial…

Mr Inbetween

Over the course of the design process we lost unicorns but managed to keep the bright pink. As dads of daughters (like Ray) Nash (Edgerton, director/producer) and I were both suddenly extremely aware of the power of the colour pink, and its sudden prevalence in…

Blue-Tongue Films

Kabooooom. Everyone’s doing faux VHS these days. Not enough of whom can actually remember what VHS looked like, so Nash and I thought we should let them know. Unfortunately my desire for realism meant working from an image at 240 pixels high, one concession to…

Strangerland

A family’s tense existence in a scorched outback town is fractured when both the children disappear as a giant sandstorm blankets the desert. The process here was basically starting with the text being obliterated into sand and dust, and then scaling that effect back until…

The Rover

We tried a whole bunch of stuff but sometimes it’s better to step out of the way of the story and find a challenge in the peace and quiet of white text on a black field.

The Kettering Incident

Down, down, down. Through the endless old-growth of wild Tasmania, with glimpses of clues and hints through the foliage, getting closer and closer to the centre of the mystery. Thanks as always to Porchlight Films for trusting me with this and giving me exactly as…

Animal Kingdom

Sell the idea that the Codys are bank robbers without having a tiresome and expensive bank robbery scene. I don’t know who came up with the idea of using images of real bank robberies but let’s just say I’m glad I wasn’t the one who…

Laid

Laid is a comedy series about a thirty-something woman who discovers to her horror that everyone she has sex with dies in a short time – and her attempts to come to terms with this reality. Amazingly, it is actually funny. This design was based…
