Hypothetical film festival for David Lynch
  • The Owls Are Not What They Seem
  • The task for this school project was to create a hypothetical film festival for the director of your choice. I had decided to work with the great and yes, very strange, David Lynch in order to explore his theme of exposing dark and seedy underbellies or the twisted secrets hidden beneath the surface.

  • Sample spreads from the 70+ page festival catalog containing information about the director, the festival itself, the films featured and other events
  • The festival tickets took the form of a motel keychain with a special red pass for the Twin Peaks TV series marathon that was screened during the day. These were housed in a leather-bound folding case with the festival schedule.
  • One of the giveaways for the festival was special edition of "The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer," a book written by Jennifer Lynch based on the Twin Peaks television series, which includes her diary entries as well as blank pages for the user to write his or her secrets in. Handbound in red leather, the diary comes with a key and lock.
  • Another one of the giveaways was a film camera with an envelope containing "undercover photographs" which were basically film stills for the various films screened at the event.
