I was thrilled to be a part of this year’s Ozark Foothills FilmFest. It all started with the poster and from there grew the entire look of this years fest. I am so glad Bob and Judy Pest, the entire FilmFest staff, let me have such a big part of the branding. I think it turned out very interesting and intriguing. Lots of good words were said about during the Fest so I was very honored. I know Ben and I will definitely be attending this event for years to come.
45 RPM Teaser Trailer Premiere
The first trailer for the movie 45RPM made its debut at the FilmFest this weekend. I did the branding for 45RPM as well as all of the art for the main character, who is an artists. Altogether, I did 17 paintings, dozens of drawings and a sketchbook. It was a fun challenge to put myself in another artist shoes and to take chances I wouldn’t normally take. I think Juli did an incredible job on this film and it really shows in this small glimpse. Without further adieu… you must see this trailer:
I was featured in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette – 3 Rivers – on Sunday, February 26th as the artist for this years Ozark Foothills FilmFest poster.
Today the official branding I did for the 2012 Ozark Foothills Filmfest went live, you can see it on their website here. The website features the photograph from the poster, and various other background images taken by me. The poster and t-shirt I designed are also featured on the site. Tomorrow, February 21st, I will be in Batesville, AR for the poster unveiling and press announcement. Hope To see you out!
Recent Announcement from FilmFest Headquarters:
Hello, Friends of the Fest.
Just a reminder that this Tuesday, February 21, is the FilmFest schedule release and poster unveiling. It takes place at 11:00 am at the Batesville Area Arts Council Gallery.
This year’s branding artist, Mandy Maxwell from Paragould, will attend. In addition to providing the original photograph used in this year’s official poster, Mandy also did or helped with all the pieces of this year’s branding campaign, including the website, program cover, and t-shirt. She’s spent countless hours working on our behalf; we’re hoping for a good crowd to reward her efforts.
For those of you who have purchased or indicated that you plan to purchase a Foothills Film Society membership, I will bring most of the members’ posters to the unveiling so that Mandy can sign them, if you’d like her to.
Hope to see you there!
