FreedomLess One-Sheet

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to post an image of a new project I just finished. It's the one-sheet for a film that will be debuting at the Tribecca Film Festival, entitled "FreedomLess". The film covers various instances of Domestic Violence, and has gained backing from a pleuthora of Spaniard Actors/Actresses as well as American Actors/Actresses such as: Reese Witherspoon, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Anthony Rapp, Eva Mendes, Parker Posey, and a bunch more. The film's official premiere will be later this month and will then move onto it's run in Spanish Cinemas.

In terms of design, I was really excited by the project and really wanted to make something that was strong, gave the message, and was iconic. I did my research on many film posters of the 60's and 70's that dealt with the portrayel of strong women messages. I knew i wanted to stay away from featuring any actors, as the film isnt meant to star sell anyone. I wanted to include a sense of the woman, and thought showing a bruised back would be the best way to get that delicate pain across to the viewer. And although I went through many variations of the logo, this one always kept popping out to me. To me, the movie's message to women is that there are in fact NOT "FreedomLess", so i threw in the cross out line as a signification of that. I also wanted to make sure that although about a harsh subject, that beauty was still present in the visual as the film wanted to protray a sense of that. All in all, I'm happy with the end result.

So here it is:

AND! I saw that they posted the poster on IMP Awards this morning! Which made me collapse a little bit, as it's my favorite site ever! :) it's on the main page but Here's the direct link:
