Movie Synopsis 
Daniel Holden was imprisoned as a teenager for the rape and murder of his 16-year-old girlfriend, Hanna. After nineteen years on death row, analysis of DNA evidence from his trial contradicts the prosecution's case, and an appeals court vacates the judgment of his original trial. Daniel is allowed to return to his hometown of Paulie, Georgia. The subsequent adjustments and events in the lives of Daniel, his extended family, and the townsfolk are explored as a character study in a slowly unfolding Southern Gothic horror story.

Design Solutions and Tools
I wanted a design that is recognizable instantly taking into account that it was for various mediums - billboard, poster, transportation, etc...  The concept was to design a tribute poster to Hitchcock’s masterpiece, Vertigo.  The overall elements echoed to both Hitchcock and Saul Bass’ design aesthetic.  The staircase photo was my original work.
I used Adobe Illustrator to design the layout, typography and font.  Adobe Lightroom was used to process the staircase photo before imported it to Adobe Photoshop to create the eye component of the design.
