DOG & PONY was tasked with creating a poster for the indie horror film "Bite." After an innocuous bite from a small insect, Casey, the film's protagonist, morphs from a blushing bride into an egg laying, flesh eating insect. As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite. DOG & PONY was tasked with creating a poster that conveys the idea of the metamorphosis in a way that is fresh, modern and truly horrific.
Horror comes from the shock of the unexpected. The concept behind this poster would be the contrast of this beautiful young woman and the disgusting bug that is overtaking her body. We supplied sketches for the photographer to shoot the star, however the real work came from building our monster bug, which was a composite of many critters that will forever haunt our nightmares.
The results speak for themselves- it makes your skin crawl! The poster has enjoyed a positive response from horror fans everywhere as the film makes the rounds at festivals.
