Art Direction and Costuming: Punk’s Dead

Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2 (2016)

Our shops and personnel provided art department & costume services for director James Merendino’s sequel production to his cult classic SLC Punk.
Art Director/Associate Producer Hraefn Wulfson provided production design services including specialty prop and set design, plus sourcing and builds with the help of our teammate Russ Adams. Assistant Costume Designer Jennifer McGrew and her crew provided patternmaking, costume construction, tailoring, fittings and alterations for visiting designer Fiora Boes.
Crowdfunded in part through its Indiegogo campaign, Punk’s Dead demonstrates how effectively an already-loved commodity can be marketed to its fan base plus attract new audiences. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and was purchased for distribution. Live theatrical premieres around the U.S. were followed up by the film’s release in digital format where fans everywhere can purchase and view this sequel about the original film’s next generation.
