An official 2018 selection of Cucalrous Film Festival, I was the production designer and art director of this short film. I created original designs and lead an art department team in the execution of the designs. My team and I transformed an entire trailer in order to visually communicate themes and elevate storytelling in this short film about a young, mixed girl struggling to leave her biased and abusive father. I created and executed these functional designs in collaboration with the director and cinematographer through discussions of visual motif and the visual construction of story. Additionally, I budgeted and executed designs within an extreme micro-budget as well as being an active participant in the processes of set dressing, decoration, construction, and costumes to ensure designs were executed according to plan.
