A Gus Van Sant Film Festival
Promote a film festival dedicated to a single film director. Conceptualize and design a number of deliverables to exhibit at the film festival. Choose a director whose series of motion pictures follow the same theme, or a thread, and use design tools that take this thread into consideration.
I chose the film director Gus Van Sant. I have paid close attention to his filmmaking over the years. I have always appreciated his style and immense talent. The film festival title (It’s Not Your Fault) is inspired by a phrase used in one of Van Sant’s feature films, Good Will Hunting. Many of Van Sant’s feature films tell the stories of confused, struggling young adults who discover a bond with someone who helps them to break with their past and find a way out. This is the thread that I followed in development of my concept.
