    Out Of Sight is a short film about the struggles of a recovering drug addict who in a bid to clear a debt with a loan shark agrees to lock a stranger in his spare room to recover from drug abuse. As the days go on suspicion grows that something far worse is at play. The project needed an official one sheet poster that would be used to promote the film and represent it at the upcoming Sundance film festival where it was nominated. The poster needed to create interest and intrigue in the film as well as fully represent the themes and subject matter. Influence was taken from one particular sequence featured in the film which shows the character give in to his cravings and slip in to a hallucinogenic state which is represented by a mesmerising kaleidoscope visual. The final poster design applies the effect to the character's face, warped with drug fuelled fear and frustration. The shapes created by the kaleidoscope effect were then arranged within the poster's dimensions to create a screaming face that represents both the horrors locked away in the spare room and the personal demons the main character is facing. The red variant poster was influenced by the flashes of red which were used in the film creating a striking contrast to the black and white. Read Less
