Its that time of year again, tis the season for the annual HS Doc Club Holiday Party. This years event will pair Mitchell Kezin’s Christmas Song documentary with an after hours party at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema. For the event poster I aimed to simply combine those two things in an interesting iconic image. Swapping out a traditional wreath with a coloured vinyl record with a bow and some Christmas lights, I feel like both the subject of the film and the tone of the party are equally represented. Like some of the previous showcase screenings at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, 50 posters were printed and given away to the first people to the screening.
I also created a short looping animation to screen before the film while people are taking their seats. In the film biz these are traditionally called “Dead Cards”, because they are a single frame but hold on screen for long amounts of time. Because Im hilarious, I called mine an UnDead card because its animated, again very hilarious.
