Hey everyone, It has seriously been way too long since i have been able to post/share anything with all of you.
I have spent the last 3 months working on the most demanding project to date, the film "Candy Shop"
Anyhow i just wanted to pop in and share a little teaser with you and only you guys here DA.
Its version one of the New Penny Dreadful Productions Demo Reels: Production Design and Artistic Direction.
One of the many things PDP does is act as the Art Departments for Film and Television, we have done Art Department, Makeup, Hair,Props, Production Design, Wardrobe, etc etc. We do it all.
Anyways i just wanted to share a short demo
I do a lot of work for Whitestone Motion Pictures(www.whitestonemotionpictures.com, a boutique film company based here in Atlanta. Today marks the web release of one of their newest projects Heartless: The story of the Tin Man. I act as art director for Whitestone, and my company Penny Dreadful Production(www.getdreadful.com), acts as the art department team.
On top of all that, I work for Bill Johnson(lonewolffx.com) who is the Production Designer for Whitestone, and together (along with the help of a few very helpful folks) build some of the large visual aspects of the film.
Not only do we manage the props, and make everything look nice
