NEW BRANDING : HARDMAN PICTURES

Introducing the new branding for Hardman Pictures.

When I set myself the brief for the logo I wanted a design that conveyed my personality and my vision for what I want to do with Hardman Pictures. The design would also need to be easily adaptable and manipulated to the identity of each film but still retain a clear identity for the company and brand.

Always rising and calm, the logo and […]

However, one of our films collapsed due to the impending lockdown in early March 2020, days before pre-production was supposed to commence in Spain.

IN DEVELOPMENT : GRAND DUKE (2020)

Latest Status – Last Stage of Development.

The Obscure Life of the Grand Duke of Corsica is an art-house tale of moral corruption, sexual excess, physical deterioration, religious fervour and ultimately selflessness,  serenity and death. It concerns three men separated by cultural differences and the vacuum of history but brought together by a shared identity, a shared purpose. Youth, beauty, innocence and hope sit alongside illness, perversion, narcissism, disease and death.
