2012 Milwaukee Film Festival Poster

From July 1 until October 19, I spent my days (and some nights) working for the Milwaukee Film as Marketing Coordinator for the 2012 Milwaukee Film Festival. I was mostly there to use my brain and words, coming up with film category names, and writing things like press releases, blog posts, the weekly (and daily) newsletters, and a fair amount of the non-film description copy in the official festival program guide. And during the festival itself, I was responsible for most of what you saw posted on Milwaukee Film’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Before my gig ended, Blyth (incredible boss, filmmaker, Director of Marketing) handed me one of the gigantic posters from the festival (designed by Cathy B. of Loneshoe Graphics) and asked me to draw all over it. The photos below are the end result.

    You NEED to make a POSTER of the poster to sell!

      As much as I like making money, this is a one-of-a-kind piece.
