The filmmakers of Site Media recently premiered a feature documentary called Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island, which has been getting lots of accolades for its gorgeous cinematography. They asked me to put together a trailer for the film.
I had the pleasure of working with Site Media directors Marcia Connolly and Katherine Knight on a trailer for their feature documentary Spring & Arnaud which is about to play at a series of festivals. It’s a gorgeous, poetic film about love and mortality with stunning shots of the sculpture and photography of Spring Hurlbut and Arnaud Maggs.
I’ve only edited a small handful of feature film trailers so it’s always an exciting challenge for me to narrow down a 1 hr+ film into a 2 minute piece while making sure to capture the essence of the story.
The Chester Kids is 21-year-old director Travis Ainley's first feature film. It's a poetic story about a friendship between two young men who are back home living with their parents in the suburbs for the summer. It's a story about love and aimlessness and what happens when the two characters get into big, big trouble. I edited this trailer for the film.
