I’ve been Googling minimalist movie poster art the last couple of days and really, really liking what other artists come up with. The idea is to take a film filled with iconic imagery, take one symbolic image from that film and creatively incorporate it into a movie poster — and they work and brilliantly too. Here is a great site if you want to find some samples: http://www.reelizer.com/. In celebration of my new found discovery, I did a movie poster for Danny Boyle’s Sci-fi thriller, Sunshine. I used my frosted texture technique and some colouring to come up with a dramatic image of the raging sun. It really only works with the title, other than that it’s a blazing ball. But it’s cool.
