As a huge fan of the gritty, suspense movies that were borne out of the 70’s, I was excited when I had the chance to work on my first movie poster.
Writer and Director, Gregory L. Williamson is completing a MFA at the University of Southern California. His Short Film, ‘Private Life’ is set in the genre of suspense drama. It is a gripping story of a horrific hate crime that takes place in the secluded North Eastern mountain trails.
When approaching the design, I was compelled to capture the styling from Hitchcocks famed graphic designer Saul Bass with the Crime Thrillers of the 1970’s. Integrating these two worlds, I wanted to pay homage while creating a haunting expression of the tragedy that is ‘Private Life’.
