Refugees From The Crowd- A Gus Van Sant Film Festival

by Academy of Art University

Create a film festival for a chosen movie director. Analyze the director’s style and extract a theme that ties all the selected films together. Then develop a cohesive visual system through a variety deliverables.

The designer has chosen six movies of Gus Van Sant—Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, Elephant, Paranoid Park, Milk, and found out that these films are all based on oppressed, and marginalized outsiders struggle against conformity to retain their true identities and integrity. Therefore, the designer has developed a visual system and used various materials to create a series of deliverables to express their oppression.​​​​​​​
