Once back, students will experience a crash course in poster design by developing their own poster for the film "A Girl Walks..." using various design theories and techniques touched on by Professor Khodabandeh. These theories will include both industry standards and Khodabandeh's own techniques. Final outcome will be the start of an 11X17 poster for the film.
