Apnée

Poster for a short film.

Apnée is a short film that tells a moving story about a classical music student who battles depression. The director approached Wedge to design the titles and film poster. To mark the elegance of the music, Wedge sought inspiration from traditional sources such as the Deutsche Grammophon album design and treated the protagonist’s portrait in the style of an alabaster bust. The visual is washed yellow to avoid melancholic cliché.
