Joined the contest over at Talenthouse for their Phantom Thread creative invite.
Title: "Uneasy Embrace"
Concept : I went with a symbolic approach to the colors. Woodcock (Day-Lewis) has let in a strong presence into his monotonous and seemingly well-balanced life. So strong that he is unsure whether he can handle it or if he actually really wants it. The red girl represents this disruption in Woodcock's world. Red also represents the color of love, passion, and anger—all emotions that were present in the trailer. His "embrace" represents his love for women and the clothes that he makes. I made him look at the camera to make it seem like we've caught him doing something he's not supposed to—mixing together these two passions of his, which seems like will end in a bad way for him and/or the woman he loves. The measuring tape going right down the middle of the title hints at a 'countdown' to something seemingly ill in the trailer. I also kept the attic as a background—the attic is a place where dark secrets are kept and locked away—I felt a hint of something dark in the trailer in Woodcock's past.
