Fellini 1920-2020

THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AFFECTS EVERYONE ON OUR PLANET, AND WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS NEW SITUATION AND FIND ANSWERS TO MANY ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS – HOW DO WE MAINTAIN OUR HEALTH? HOW DO WE CARE AND PROVIDE FOR OUR LOVED ONES? HOW CAN I HELP A FRIEND? WHAT ABOUT MY NEIGHBORS? WHAT ABOUT THE COMMUNITY?

DESIGNERS around the world are trying to create effective visual communications that would help us in this difficult situation as well as raise our shaken spirits and morale. We need a distraction to help us escape from this uneasy reality, at least for a moment. One of our favorite escapes was into the magical world of filmmaking master Federico Fellini. His films have left a deep impact on our imagination and certainly influenced the formation of the visual culture of generations of creative individuals.

This year marks the centenary of Fellini’s birth, but all of the festivities and cultural events celebrating him have been postponed for the foreseeable future. We believe that even under these uneasy circumstances, we still could express our gratitude to our great teacher by celebrating his creative work while challenging and pushing boundaries of our creativity through participation in the Fellini 1920-2020 project.

WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION AND ASSISTANCE, AND WHEN APPROPRIATE, WE PLAN TO EXHIBIT THE RESULTS OF THIS CREATIVE INITIATIVE: DIGITALLY PRINTED, OR DIGITALLY PROJECTED FORMATS, AS WELL AS FEATURED THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA WORLDWIDE.

THE PROJECT:
Your poster could be a tribute to Fellini’s birthday or for a Fellini film that you admire. For a tribute poster, please include Fellini 1920-2020 text, and for a Felini film poster, include the title of the film. Poster specs: size 70 x 100 cm, format pdf. Considering that contemporary graphic design is no longer just 2d, and if you have the expertise, you are welcome to create your poster using motion graphics. Video specs: dimensions 1280 x 720 px, format mov or mp4, length 30 seconds or less, file size less than 200 MB

Please submit your project via
wetransfer.com to
cedomirkostovic@missouristate.edu

The deadline for submission is June 30, and could be extended if necessary.

All submissions will be used only for non-commercial activities associated with the Fellini 1920-2020 project.

Please let us know as soon it is possible if you will be able to join us on this creative journey by replying to Cedomir’s e-mail listed below.
