My second poster goes to an Israeli short about the city of Italian town of Pitigliano and the special relationship between its Christians and Jews in the days of WWII. Project also included DVD cover and disc design. While the director supplied me with a (horizontal!) high-res drone photo of Pitigliano that he took, I knew I was going to incorporate an element within it that would signify the story. So I conceptualized this mascot-like symbol of a cross standing in front of a magen david, reaching its "arms" to protect it. I used very fast paint brush strokes for it, to suggest the sense of urgency and fast reaction. I extended the photo both upwards and downwards (e.g. the sky is from another image) and gave the whole thing an old photo look to give an idea about the time in history the story is about.
A young woman's life is changing. Her efforts trying to understand what's going on take her to a world of memories, childhood, first love and wedding. My poster design was actually a side project, the real deal was composing and producing the movie's original music, with long-distance live recordings held in the USA (pianist Andrew Kraus) and Lithuania (soprano Vaida Genyte).
