- About the Project
It's an understatement to suggest that 2021 was one of the most trying times we've ever experienced. The Global Pandemic (Covid-19) shut down just about everything, except for Sunscreen.
While more than 90% of film festivals across the U.S. and internationally cancelled entirely, or adopted a virtual format, streaming films and awards ceremony's over the Internet, the Sunscreen Film Festival refused to concede and recede behind a pay-wall, no. Instead, the 16th annual film festival embraced the old adage, "the show must go on." And was it controversial? Perhaps. But our decision was also hailed as Sunscreen celebrated Independent Filmmakers.
The design for 2012 needed to be impactful. The theme was refusal, rebellion, and the dogged determination of the independent filmmaker, thus the powerful image of a raised fist, clutching a film camera, rising from the smoke and ash of a worldwide pandemic. The image was very well received and hailed as one of Sunscreen's best images.
