It’s an election year and everyone has an opinion about what’s broken in Washington.
The Congressman stars Treat Williams as a frustrated lawmaker who catches a breath of fresh air during an unexpected retreat to a remote island in his district to deal with a fishing dispute.
The film, written and co-directed by former congressman Robert Mrazek, tells a story which evokes Bill Forsyth’s Local Hero, a personal favorite of Declan’s.
We designed and animated the main titles.
The film anchored closing night of the The 18th Annual Sarasota Film Festival, and hits theaters in New York and Washington on April 29, and independent cinemas across the country in the weeks that follow.

The Standbys, a documentary feature from director Stephanie Riggs for which we had the privilege of designing and animating the titles and graphics, opens February 21, 2014 for a New York City Theatrical Run at the Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village.
The Standbys follows a variety of undiscovered performers for several years through their ups and downs, struggles and triumphs, onstage performances and private lives.
The film is a New York Times Critic’s Pick.
You can view a clip of the film’s open, including our main title design, in the portfolio here.

We were recently hired by Beat Media Group to develop the motion graphic elements for the main titles for the Architecture & Design Film Festival.
The animated elements are based upon Obek Design’s beautiful work for the web and print material, and were incorporated with festival film clips in collaboration with director Stephanie Riggs of Beat.
The festival began in New York City October 16-20, 2013 and continues with programs in Chicago in and Los Angeles this coming Spring.
The bumper, which plays before each program in the festival, is up in the portfolio.
