Tea & Crumpets Film Poster
- Client: RRR Productions
- Skills: Poster Design
“Tea & Crumpets” is a British Council funded short film directed by Rohan Green, intended to raise the public’s awareness of international sex trafficking. I won a pitch to develop the key art poster for the film. After discussing the project with the director and viewing the stills, I set out a round of initial concepts before we settled on the chosen option.
An illustration supplied by the director provided the start point for the final option. Eventually I replaced the illustration with an image that has a similar vagueness to it, something a little abstract, cold and somber. I wanted a person sat on the edge of a bed, with their face obscured or cropped out. Once I found the right image, I then coloured and altered it to fit accordingly. The overall composition of the main image gives some context to the film’s title, with the cracked cup as a subtle nod to the central character’s journey in the story.
