We are looking to create a movie poster for our upcoming dark comedy, PUSHING DEAD.
Synopsis: When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?

This fill will be released theatrically in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and likely 5-10 other markets.
Relatively light hearted amidst very serious issues, such as health coverage, AIDS, this film does a really good job connecting you to the characters without feeling too contrived or sugar coated. A great ensemble of actors and situations.
This is a pretty original story, so there aren't too many spot on comparisons. Still, I have put together some cool movie posters in the pinterest feed above which also have dark undertones to a mostly comedic tale. In the WeTransfer files, there are 3 pics that are outside of the zip file. These are liked by the director, and could be a good starting point for the poster. But don't feel limited to these three! There are a lot of stills. Or maybe you want to go for a more symbolic approach like the original art contained in the WeTransfer file, or Sideways, or some other memorable movies.
Good luck! And Thanks!!
