EPICS is a channel dedicated to interviews with actors, musicians and anyone who thinks big.
EPICS is a channel on VEON that features content centred around interviews with global thinkers and tastemakers. For this series, I arrived at a format where each piece is broken up into an intro, some quotes with visuals sprinkled in, and an outro or CTA. I tried to always maintain the art-direction of the property being advertised or discussed, and fill in the gaps only where necessary.
Roles within this process
• Storyboarding / ideation
• Art-direction & graphic design
• B-roll & asset sourcing
• Video production and export
Interview: Penelope Cruz
Penelope Cruz plays Donatella Versace in the "Assassination of Georgio Armani", available now. She talks about her relationship with Donatella and how to speak with an italian accent.
Interview: Ryan Gosling
Ahead of the release of Bladerunner 2049, Ryan Gosling speaks about working with Harrison Ford and how he approaches roles. This was super fun to work on because I love everything about the Bladerunner vibe – I added some lighting effects and fake rain to really amp up the dread.
Interview: Daisy Ridley
An EPICS feature focusing on Daisy Ridley and her experience in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I tried to match the art-direction of the film's marketing campaign as best I could, using red swipes to reference the red-soiled planet where Kylo Ren & Luke square off.
Interview: Chris Hemsworth
Thor: Ragnarok has a real sense of humour and almost comes off like an 80s movie in a way, so in this interview with Chris Hemsworth I tried to preserve some of that over-the-top schlock and keep things fun.
Interview: Lupita N'Yongo
The Black Panther star talks about being on one of the biggest movies ever and her status as a role model.
Interview: Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds lists his loves and hates in this piece, released in the weeks leading up to the release of Deadpool II.
