ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
I have been asked by the creators of 'Overtoun Uncovering the Mystery' documentary, to design a film poster, DVD and CD Soundtrack cover.
In Dumbarton there’s an estate called Overtoun famous for its bridge where hundreds of dogs have jumped for their deaths since the 50’s. This phenomenon made the news several times and the myths and legends surrounding it grew fast. We intend with this documentary to tell the whole story of this place, to give a better perspective to the viewer of this mysterious estate and its history.
The main focus then will be the myths and folklore that people created to explain this strange dog “suicides”. Why do we as a society tend to fabricate explanations to strange happenings? Myths, despite all our scientific progress, are still an important social practice, maybe one of the few that are truly universal and timeless. This unique and contemporary urban legend will help us understand a bit more about that level of the Human mind below the tip of the “iceberg”.
