Film Props – Magazine Covers

A teen romance, The Sand Dune movie was filmed in Corpus Christie Texas. The script called for several shots with magazine covers including one with the male lead thumbing through a magazine. Given copyright issues for film, creating new magazines was the best option. The challenge was that each magazine needed it’s own identity. I created several magazines including logo, cover and interior spreads.

I was 1st Editor on this film featured in the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, LA Femme International Film Festival, and the San Luis Obispo Film Festival, among others. The film won four nominations at the Madrid International Film Festival 2020: best short documentary, best editing of a documentary, best director of a short documentary, science & education award


Rising from oil, mud and ash like a phoenix, Santa Barbara citizens keep standing, from the 1969 Oil Spill that sparked the environmental movement, to recent oil, fire and debris flow disasters, for love, shared support and strength. Learn more and watch the trailer for “Better Together”


One poster concept I developed uses the symbol of the perseverance of the volunteer bucket brigade, who worked tirelessly to “dig” homes, trees and cars out of the mud after the tragic mudslides in Montecito, California. The image filling the silhouette depicts environmental activists protesting in the 60s. A juxtaposition of community coming together, then and now, to create real change.
