LipSync’s in-house design team have recently completed titles for Deborah Haywood’s ‘stylish and sinister’ new release, Pin Cushion. This darkly comic tale follows Iona (Lily Newmark) and her mother, Lyn (Joanna Scanlan), as they try for a fresh start in a new town. Lyn’s physical challenges cause Iona to retreat into her fantasy world in a bid to escape the constant teasing and ridicule from school friends. As an eccentric mother, Lyn is less Norma Bates and more Bonnie Grape with a sprinkling of Mrs Doyle. This tragicomic dichotomy provided a unique challenge for our design team as they needed to introduce the film with both sinister and funny undertones. You can read more about that here.
Pin Cushion has been well received at both the Venice Film Festival and Fantastic Fest. It will be released in the UK at selected cinemas on July 13th 2018. To watch the trailer and read more, click here
