BlackCard (2016) | Short Film | HBO

14 Minutes | Shot on RED Epic | On Location in NYC/NJ
Client : Double7 Images
Completed : Winter 2015

BlackCard walks a tightrope of tone as it deals satirically with race, touching upon cultural issues with comedy, drama, and even romance. I worked to create a world where our protagonists, Leonard and Lona, are depicted as real characters, but The Commission and its members are caricatures. It was important to introduce The Commission as an organization that instilled fear, so we shot the street scene on the MoVi to create a free flowing sense of deliberate movement that will not be stopped. The drum heavy score was designed to underline this emotion.
