"24 year old Steven Hall is a graphic designer and illustrator with a passion for details. When faced with the task of creating a portfolio to showcase his ability, he approaches it like any other project—with innovation, enthusiasm and tireless effort. But while working sleepless nights from dusk til dawn, the line separating reality from the world inside his computer begins to blur. He had always been told to become a part of his work, but this time...his work was becoming a part of him. Now, upon completing his portfolio, he will use the power of this synergy to take on New York City’s toughest critics in an effort to rise to the top. Will he be able to wield it for his own intent while maintaining his persona? Or, will he become forever consumed by: THE PORTFOLIO---------------------------------------------
"The Portfolio" is a fictitious science fiction film that I created to package a CD portfolio of my graphic design and illustration work. The plot is an allegory to countless nights spent basking in the glow of my computer screen, trying to ensure the best possible representation of my work and what I'm capable of. I wanted to create a physical version of my portfolio that was a portfolio piece in an of itself, combining not only examples of my technical abilities, but of my personality, writing ability, and sense of humor.
