Adapted from the short story by acclaimed author James Lee Burke, WINTER LIGHT is a dramatic, character-driven thriller set against the sweeping backdrop of the snow-covered Montana wilderness.
I was hired by Director/Producer Julian Higgins, Executive Producer Abigail Spencer (“Rectify”), and Producer Josh Pence (“The Social Network”) to brand the short film and to create a set of materials to fund raise for the passion project. The project was funded and filmed in the winter of 2014 and will star Raymond J. Barry (“Justified”), Vincent Kartheiser (“Mad Men”), Q’orianka Kilcher (“The New World”), Michael Bofshever (“United 93″) and Josh Pence.
The design was inspired by the property signs in rural Montana, the orange in the hunter’s clothing, and the doe that plays a largely symbolic role in the film. Elements of texture and old photocopies are a reference to the academic world that the main character is retiring from.
