The goal of this project was to create an identity for a fictional film festival in honor of a director of our choosing. The festival had to represent a specific theme from the director’s movies. I selected Jim Sheridan, an Irish film maker. My festival was called “Not Far from Home.” The movies featured in the festival were specific to Sheridan’s theme about family bonds during tough times. I conveyed the heaviness of the hard times depicted in the films with a series of poignant photographs that tied in appropriately to each movie’s plot.
