This film we made for StoryCorps, Traffic Stop, was nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy in the New Approaches; Arts, Lifestyle, Culture category.
Here are some character designs from the production. The characters needed to be believable and realistic for this difficult story. The toughest one to design was Patsy because she looked sad in all our reference pics. When Gina met her in real life her she commented on how beautiful Patsy was when she smiled. I went back and redesigned her face to reflect that softer aspect of her personality that had been hidden in the photos.
