The first poster I created was used for initial promotion of the film, including an Indiegogo campaign and sharing through social media. The main focus of the poster is the pizza slice dripping with "sauce," displaying the title of the film. The background captures the mood of a more sketchy area of the Bronx, where the film was to take place; the color and tone is dark and brooding. At this point in production, there was no set chosen, no actors hired, and only a loose script to work off of, so an atmospheric scene of the urban Bronx landscape set the backdrop for this poster.
The second poster I created was used for general promotion of the film once principle photography was completed. Since the actors were solidified (Lillo Brancato and William Demeo of The Sopranoes fame), I decided to use their likenesses this time around; drawing them cold and statuesque reflected the characters behaviors. The poster was designed with an overall film noir style and depicts the dark nature of the two leads. The gritty texture was achieved using vectored splotches of paint to added to the vintage poster theme. In contrast to the first poster, this one takes a more simplistic approach to displaying the aesthetic of the film. The brushed type also became the title card for the film.
