Everyone recognizes the Oscar statue. Awards and film just go hand in hand. Indy Film Fest gives out awards too - but this year we learned the marble trophies we'd been using for years were no longer available. With the old style being discontinued, we decided to mix things up. The idea was to create hand-crafted awards to reflect the personal style of our featured films. Here's the result:
The award art work was silk-screened onto actual birch paper, which absorbed the ink in unexpectedly cool ways. Each award turned out a little different from the next — a one-of-a-kind memento from the 2011 Festival. After adding a simple frame to commemorate the recognition, these festival trophies are ready to hang with their new filmmaker friends.
Huge thanks to our creative partner, Lodge Design for dreaming these up and making it happen!
