Bertie’s Short Films: ‘Grey Area’

Bertie returns with his newest short film ’Grey Area’, a sort of sequel to his last film 'Tick Where It Hurts’. A beautifully coloured piece and it feels yet more mature than it’s predecessor, because of this I wanted to portray the same look I gave Tick but by adding the film texture the graininess is clear. I strongly urge everyone to watch this stunning piece of work, and I hope you like my take on the film posters!  

Side note: If you’re interested, I made all the other details I usually put on the poster almost unreadable because I thought that the film had such a clever and unusual use of contrast and garish colours so I thought I would try and translate that through the posters. 


we will be releasing a behind the scenes video for ‘tick where it hurts’ soon.

He was beginning to get worried; Charlie hadn’t shown up for a while. However, he refused to go out and hunt him down; he had to trust that Charlie was alright, at least until that thought was proven false. As the hours ticked by, he grew increasingly worried. Where was Charlie? Was he hurt? Should he go looking for him? What if something bad had happened! Sighing, he decided to give the boy a few more minutes before he started combing the streets.
