VANITY FAIR/ '"Call me Caitlyn"' documentary film

The Caitlyn Jenner project was developed within a small group under Graydon Carter's direction. The team engineered new methods of data distribution in order to pull off the release of the story's print and motion components. Prior to the short film being released to the public, asset uniformity was a key focus across all content.

The documentary is featured below, alongside select vignettes behind the making of the film.

 In order of appearance: 1, 2; A frame of the distorted  Vanity Fair  logotype from the opening sequence. Projecting the completed film in studio onto an Apple CRT monitor gave the documentary a sense of closure and permanence. We overlayed the tube effect on the animated logo, and a single shot of photographer Annie Leibovitz capturing Jenner. 3, 4; Animated Didot typography over cityscapes creating defined establishing shots. 5; Newsstand cover.
