Class: Communication design 1 Instructor: Sean Adams Assignment: Create a movie poster for 2001: A Space Odyssey that doesn't look like a traditional movie poster
With this one I wanted to portray the transformative experience at the end of the movie.
We were asked to create a movie poster for 2001: A Space Odyssey. The only restriction was that it couldn't look like a traditional movie poster. It had to be conceptual and experimental in nature. I decided to choose scenes in the movie that were particularly memorable while trying to stay away from clichés.
With this one I attempted to capture the expansive space both for our mind and our soul to stretch to in situations of stress. I wanted the lens flairs to appear both space-like and also an abstract portrayal of a progressive journey.
Set in context this poster adds an eerie sense of wonder.
