The White Pass is the original soundtrack composed by Jeremy Holland-Smith, commissioned for the BBC documentary "I Shot My Parents". Following the success of both the documentary and its music the soundtrack was to be made available for general release and we were invited to design the album artwork.
The film, set in America, follows the dramatic case of a child, who in 2013 shot his parents while they slept. Miraculously they both survived. The White Pass is the route the family must travel to see their imprisoned son. Portrayed as not just a physical journey but an emotional journey The White Pass became the title and the inspiration for the soundtrack.
Our cover design uses imagery of the pass taken on location, capturing the vast emotional uncertainty and solitude of the themes that run through the film. The typography was kept minimal, yet plays with the idea of a journey.
