Where the Wild Things Are - POSTER
This week’s poster is an update of an image I did years ago for when the Where The Wild Things film came out. This originally ran in Brick Weekly along with a review. I liked it enough to buff it up a little and give it the poster treatment.
Hunger Games Poster
I have it. I’ve got the Hunger Games Fever. And the only way to properly get rid of it was to put together this poster. It started out as an idea of using the 24 characters as the focus of the poster. Lined up with the book’s main character Katniss spotlighted. As I sketched it out though it became something else entirely. It’s different than what I imagined but It’s still pretty fun.
I can’t wait to watch the movies now. Tore through the books over the summer and have avoided all spoiler imagery for the film. I want to go in as fresh as possible which I’ll admit is a little unrealistic considering I know who lives and dies, when they live and die and how they live and die. Still… HUNGER GAMES!!!!
Head on over to JOE LOVES CRAPPY MOVIES to read my comic and review later this weekend.
Here’s a better look at the poster from today’s JOE LOVES CRAPPY MOVIES comic update. Loved the new movie but we all secretly want to see the Muppet undead… or unpuppeteered… ?
I put together this poster for Chronicle. I was taken with the film and while I really liked the official poster (featuring a cloudy Seattle skyline with three figures in the distance flying around) as well as some of the fan made posters that focused on the powers and characters, I felt like they all lacked a nod to the camera.
This is a found footage film and I hate the comparisons that brings up as much as anyone, but it can’t be ignored. The camera is very important here. It represents a lot more than just a way to tell the story. I talk a little bit more in depth about it in the comic and review I posted last week. I was happy to make it the focal point of my take on the poster.
Anyway I really enjoyed doing a minimalist take on things. I also enjoyed trying to capture the film in poster form. It’s a new challenge. A new way for me to enjoy the film. I’m hoping to do more. Maybe take my favorite movie of each month and put a poster together for it. We’ll see how it goes.
