50 PAGE BOOK & ART DIRECTION FOR FILM
Freelance - 2016
A book dedicated to the film Reckless Abandon by Bode Merrill and Jon Ray produced by SNOWBOARDER MAGAZINE. I was hired to create the art direction for the film including titles, web/ social media promotion, and a 50 page book. I worked with Bode to understand his concept for the book.
"I wanted to give kids a behind-the-scenes look of the filming of the movie, so I bought 5 disposable cameras and gave them to the people in the film and told them to go nuts. There are also some action shots in here, but it seems like every snowboard magazine you pick up features beautiful, crisp, colorful action shots on expensive cameras but I wanted to mix in a grainy, candid view of the making of RECKLESS ABANDON too. I hope you enjoy the film and the book. If not, then try skiing."
