Granted is a project that I hold very close to my heart. My best friend, Connor Eberhard, passed away on April 23 2013 at just 18 years of age from a rare liver cancer. He was barely a quarter of the way through his first year studying Film at York University in November of 2012 when he was diagnosed with the disease.
Granted was an idea his family had to show all of Connor’s short films on the big screen. We worked on making this idea a reality for a month and I was so honoured to be able to design the posters, tickets and take photos at the event, which took place on June 15th 2013. All of the proceeds went towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation, who helped Connor meet J.J Abrams, one of his idols, in Hollywood, before he passed away.
