The Scary of Sixty-First is a feature film and debut directorial from Dasha Nekrasova. It was accepted into the 71st Berlinale Film Festival Encounters Selection and I was asked to create the poster.
Staying true to how the film was shot on 16mm film, and an ode to the classic horror films of the 70s and 80s, I wanted to create a poster that stuck with this structure- only using stills and a clean title that was representative of this genre of film. The stills and title rest inside a narrow neo-Italian Rennaisance style door shape- a major motif of the film and where the climax of it takes place. Movies like Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and the films of Dario Argento were a huge inspiration for this.
The clients were incredibly pleased with the outcome, and following the premiere at Berlin, it gained a lot of praise online and on social media.
