When it comes to the term "design", most people think of printed work, such as posters and magazine layouts, and with technology advancing, website design too. Things that go unnoticed as design material can sometimes be the most interesting. For me, I discovered the outcome of this project to be just as fulfilling as the process (which was extremely fun by the way). While some students merely updated the older style of a film leader, I chose the film leader to function as a glimpse into the particular movie it would be playing. The first film leader might preview for an arthouse horror film, while the second leader would preview for a teen comedy such as Juno.
The first film leader was created using a DSLR camera, and mainly consists of ink, pressed between plexiglass sheets or soaking into tissue paper. The second film leader was hand drawn, scanned, and colored in Photoshop.
