Caviar is a political satire, found footage style horror movie written and directed by Jacob Michael King.
“Antigone Corday is an aspiring social media influencer. She is mourning the recent death of her brother, Jeremiah, a well-known pundit and voice for progressive causes. Soon, she receives a mysterious package in the mail–a pre-recorded video of Jeremiah. He claims to have uncovered a conspiracy that will throw her worldview, and the fate of the planet, into question.” – Via IMDB
This movie takes you down the rabbit hole of bizarre internet conspiracies, ramped up to their most insane. For this movie, I worked with producer Jais Sardo to develop a look that was soft and subtle. Based around a blue and pink color palette, the look aims to not look too stylized or hit you over the head with it’s contrast. It does however create a palette that lends itself to the piece, and helps to create an unsettling mood throughout the movie.
