Production designer David Doernberg, who brought a sensitive, finely crafted and observant touch to many excellent independent films, died in New York on Friday after a battle with cancer.
Doernberg began his career in the late ’80s/early ’90s working on music videos for bands like Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo and Superchunk. He quickly moved into independent features, working as a propmaster for films by Hal Hartley (Amateur), Daisy von Scherler Mayer (Party Girl) and Eric Schaeffer (If Lucy Fell). Soon after he became a production designer, bookending his career with films by Kelly Reichardt. He designed her 1994 debut film, River of Grass, as well as her 2010 period tale of frontier life on the Oregon Trail, Meek’s Cutoff. Other notable credits include Phil Morrison’s Junebug, Alison Maclean’s Jesus’s Son, Morgan J. Freeman’s Desert Blue, Todd Solondz’s Palindromes and Pete Sollett’s Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. »

Oren Moverman has two films to his directing credit (aside from a number of writing credits including I'm Not There And Jesus' Son). This includes his latest crime drama Rampart and his last film - which also featured Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster . the Academy Award nominated The Messenger. Clearly, the man has a hell of a lot of talent telling intensely personal stories. In Rampart, Woody Harrelson plays a renegade cop who has trouble adjusting to a whole new world of law enforcement. »
