Love, Marilyn

Liz Garbus’s HBO documentary explores the life of Marilyn Monroe through her own writings. The film features readings by Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Giamatti, David Strathairn and many more.

We designed roughly 45 minutes of greenscreen backgrounds that appear behind the actors reading journal entries, letters, and musings by Monroe and others. We also recreated her handwritten diaries and notes, treated archival footage and photographs, and animated many montage sequences.

It was a large scale project handled by our streamlined and adept team. During this project we learned a great deal about Marilyn Monroe’s fascinating life. Even with her short-lived career, she left an indelible mark in our culture.
