I received a wealth of submissions for the recent Open Pitch. Not all of them can be included in print, so I will share some here on the blog.
The following submission is from Shantanu Suman, a graphic designer from India who currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina:
After working as an art director for over six years in India, I left my job in 2010 to get my Masters in Graphic Design at the University of Florida. During this unanticipated adventure I found myself exploring a long buried love for the truck art of India. During the summer of 2012, I traveled to India for 45 days, carried out extensive research and collaborated with friends to make Horn Please—a documentary film that narrates the story of the Indian truck art. I was accountable for developing the concept and doing the research of the project. I also acted as the joint director, director of photography, and art director to work with a team of individuals who played their own role during the making of the film."
