This HBO series takes place in Atlantic City during the prohibition period of the 1920’s-30’s. It revolves around Nucky Thompson’s political power, illegal activities, and lavish lifestyle.
Our goal was to demonstrate the control Nucky has over the entire town- his awareness and distinct role in the towns many illegal activities. As time, people, and policies change, he stands strong at the center of it all. He calmly walks towards the water, lights his cigarette, and stares into the ocean as a storm dramatically roles in...yet he remains unaffected.
I worked on the original storyboards, and assisted in the shoot. MIchelle and Karin directed the live action with Steve Buscemi, while I directed the bottle cut away shots along with Kacie Barton.
