Message/Audience: My idea with this project was to do something post-apocalyptic that would appeal to people that like that genre of movie, or even book. I wanted a gritty, surreal look to the image. As a long time fan of survivalist, zombie, and movies about the human struggle, I wanted to take a shot at what I might envision a movie poster looking like.
Critique Report: I spent almost 12 hours working on this project and had a hard time finding a picture of myself that I liked. My critiques were from my wife, and a few co-workers that were milling about while I was working on this. Initially I had tried to get more going on with the face but the feedback I got was that it was too busy. It probably helped that it was extremely hard for me to figure out and took 2-3 hours to get right.
Process: The process for this project involved multiple layers. There is a city behind the trees, which can be seen, but is faint. If you look at my sunglasses you’ll see the reflection of two men approaching. That was a really fun part of this project to discover and figure out.
Fonts: SF MOVIE POSTER CONDENSED was used for the names, and Trajan for the title. I used a custom font/design that I’ve included below.
Images: There is of course the image of me on the far right of the poster, and then a few more that I’ve detailed below.
Here’s a link to my YouTube video showing off my poster!
