MASTER CLASS: THE FILM POSTER WITH BARFUTURA

He will go through all the phases of creation of a project, from its origin until it comes to light, introducing us to his own trajectory and going over the history of the film poster.
The director of Barfutura studied graphic design at the Pratt Institute in New York, during which time he combined his studies with interactive design work for important New York firms.
