“Operation Sussex”


Most of the material is B&W and in a foreign language. It's a war story so the pacing had to be urgent and tense. With subtitles AND title cards it ended up visually cluttered. I had to design an audio flow to keep the viewer smoothly moving thru it.
Bonnie Friedman — producer (2011)
