Lex Talionis

Last summer, I flew out to California to work on a short film Lex Talionis written and directed by my sister Melissa Kosar. It is an intense psychological drama, and was just included in the official selection of the 2011 Central Florida Film Festival. I did some minor FX make-up for the project, and also designed the poster and title logo. You can find more information on Lex Talionis on its page HERE

Also, check out my sister's blog HERE for updates on her work, including working on films, music videos, and network television, most recently an NBC pilot with Christopher Lloyd.

Lex Talionis Synopsis:

"With every year that passes, the loss of Julia's father becomes more and more unbearable. It is a destructive cliche to say time heals all pain, and for years she has been fighting herself to get passed his death. Julia is finally ready to let her wound heal."

See the teaser here:

Soon, I'll have some pictures to post of my FX make-up work on the film once it has its first screenings. But for now, here are a couple behind-the-scenes shots from the film:
