Catch Me Daddy, the debut film from British directors and writers Daniel and Matthew Wolfe, is in cinemas later this month. The highly detailed poster created for its release is also a combined effort – and a darkly surreal artwork in its own right – by graphic designer Fraser Muggeridge and artist Mu Pan…

Set in and around the Yorkshire moors, Catch Me Daddy follows Laila, a young British Pakistani girl who decides to flee from the traditions of her family. The story turns into a dark tale of escape as Laila and her boyfriend Aaron are forced to run from her brother, intent on carrying out an ‘honour killing’.

The poster for the film features a painting by New York-based Mu Pan that includes several of the film’s characters positioned on the body of an enormous white tiger.

Fraser Muggeridge Studio, who designed the poster, has also created an interesting website for the film at catchmedaddy.com. It gives a flavour of some of the film’s striking imagery through gifs, stills photography, poetry and short film clips.
