SOSAD POSTER for website

I designed the poster above for this animated short film. All the credits are there on the poster, the names of the five people involved. The brainchild of Emmet O’Brien (Thinking Cog Productions), originally conceived to be a comic, I saw the possibility to make it an animated short, conveying the beats of the comic book with subtlety and minimalism. Coming up with the music and scene blocking, with Emmet’s directorial supervision and Cethan’s artwork, making It fully support the storytelling and the voice performances, building in momentum to the final scene, the big reveal, was an opportunity to try something quite special. Collaborating on this with Emmet and Cethan was a pleasure. I recorded the voice performances from Darragh and Rachel in my living room, Emmet directing the radio play we essentially made before the short film. Below you can watch the film in an embedded YouTube player. I hope you enjoy it.
