"Until The Dust Settles" Film Poster

  • When asked by Director Alexander Gangi and Producer Kristen Hall to concept and design a poster for their SCAD MFA thesis film, "Until The Dust Settles," I jumped at the chance to create a hand-drawn piece that celebrated the old-style, early-20th century, Americana ephemera of the Dust Bowl period in which the film is set. The poster focuses on the car, filled with the three main characters, driving from New York across the plains, shown to soon be overcome by the dust storm – a pivotal moment in the short story. The palette uses tans and browns and deep earthy greens to emulate the color grade of the film. The finished product still shows some broader expressionistic brush strokes as well as the pen-and-ink line art in the detail to give the poster a feel of vintage advertising pitch artwork, as well as a more human touch.
    Posters are now available for purchase by supporting the film's Kickstarter project here.
