Knowing so much of the narrative depends on its aesthetic, the design was essential to get right.

Tequila Sunrise aims to capture the essence and nuances of traditional brit-flick classics. The aesthetic is one of the familiar: a drug-deal gone wrong; shot-up vehicles; a dreary, abandoned mill; blood and guts - it's unpleasant.

The vehicles are intentionally of an older era - 80s & 90s - thus once again paying homage to the classic gangster pictures that so heavily influences the design.
