A Distant Melody
Sentimental Spring Film Festival
Design all features of a festival that is dedicated to a film director. Design a visual system for the event that includes a catalog, a poster, DVD’s, tickets, a schedule and promotional materials. The promotional campaign has a website and advertisements that all capture the essence of the film festival.
In the films of Shunji Iwai, people are reminded about the power of first love. It is often not a happy ending for that first love, but it is an important experience that can teach how to avoid the same mistakes again. Interestingly, it can also teach how to love a stranger. I took all the photos in a Japanese tea garden and used soft color to express the sweetness and innocence of the young characters in Shunji Iwai’s films. I also used Japanese words in the design to give people a feeling for the traditional Japanese culture that infuses his films.
