Haven’t posted in a while, and that’s because I’ve been working on a ton of projects—one of which I’m excited to finally show everyone…
Nick Gregorio, a Philly-area filmmaker and actor, has just wrapped post production on his new feature film, Green. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to create the opening motion titles for the film. Built in After Effects, the titles are a whimsical and psychedelic jaunt through a cartoon world of Philadelphia and LA. Green is a comedy about a Philadelphia drug dealer who moves out to LA to start a legitimate medical marijuana repository. My goal with the titles was to create a retro-feeling that is is stylized and grungy, but still has a sense of playfulness and fun.
The creation of Green is really inspiring, which is why I was so eager to help out with this project. Green was shot on RED for a budget of under $10,000 in Los Angeles last year. The movie was made with a minimal crew, all volunteering their time and skills. The final feature is truly a grassroots effort (pun not intended…I swear).
Be sure to check out the titles at the vimeo link above. Hopefully, I’ll be able to provide more information on Green as it starts to get shopped around to distributors. Also, please watch Nick Gregorio’s previous feature endeavor, Happy Birthday Harris Malden. Malden was collaboratively created with his former sketch comedy group, Sweaty Robot. The film was shown at a slew of high profile festivals, including CineVegas. The movie is available to buy on DVD and stream instantly via Netflix and Hulu.
