Rodents of Usual Size is a documentary that digs deep into Louisiana’s most invasive species known as the the 20-pound ‘swamp rat.’ The documentary follows the bounty hunters who are on a mission to save Louisiana’s natural habitat by hunting down these rats.
Due to the humorous subject matter in the film I wanted to frame the film as a campy horror film by making the rat look larger than life.
SEED dissects deep into the hidden fabric and the people that meticulously curate its diversity, in an era of climate uncertainty and immense corporate power.
The poster got featured to be on the cover of PDN magazine.
