Never Hide Films: “Albert The Dog”

Ray-Ban-Albert-The-DogPoster by Katie So

 

Yours Truly has been working with a group of filmmakers and composers to produce a series of creative, music driven, narrative shorts for Ray Ban’s channel, Never Hide Films. We had the fun job of overseeing the film posters for the series.

This latest poster was created by one of our talented friends, Vancouver-based illustrator Katie So, and it follows posters we commissioned by Hellen Jo, Brecht Vandenbroucke and Andrea Wan.

Stay tuned for the latest #campaign4change short film “Albert The Dog”, directed by the duo known as Pensacola, with music by Giraffage. It’s a bizarre tale about how far you’ll go for your loved ones. Have a look at the rest of the posters in the series below.

He designed, produced, curated, directed everything and still found time to paint a giant mural along side 20+ local artists. Take a look at the video below to see some of the murals they created at the event.
