Rico con Amor

Jacob Wilhelmi came to me looking to create inter-titles and special effects for his silent-era styled production Rico con Amor. A fan of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplain, et al, I was thrilled to help out. It was important that we didn't simply use a canned filter, so all distortion effects and title backgrounds were created by hand and scanned in. Editing was done in Final Cut Express. Interesting note: while post-editing took place in 2011, the footage was actually shot in 2008.
