THIS is a great video.
HA. I'll never look at another movie poster the same again.I want a poster of your new header photo. Excellent.
These Hollywood hipster halfwits, who couldn't make a good movie if their lives depended on it, put Drew Struzan out of work with their $2 photoshop posters. Off with their floating heads!
I couldn't agree more. The quickly thrown-together posters are indicative of their quickly thrown-together (usually a remake) movies. The film making craft has been lost to a factory mentality in Hollywood. Which is why I haven't been to a movie theater in years...
I couldn't agree more. So much more going on in the older posters. The older ones actually used the the color wheel. And the poster could tell you a story.I work in a printing plant, (junk mail) and people see better art in their mailbox.
He makes some good points, but I don't feel like this is a new phenomenon. I'd hazard to say that you could look at movie posters from any era in cinematic history and easily identify a handful of recurring formats that must have seemed overused at the time - even some of the older horror posters that he showed could be considered examples of older trends; the saturated, painterly, surrealist montage, for instance.
"Floating Heads" are on every movie poster.. Except for the ones with big cap letters filling up the graphic. It's the Hollywood rule - just like the same rhythmic crush used in every Hollywood action trailer since Prometheus. On a bright note you may be interested to see the Mr. Jones poster art made Deep Fried Movies best-of for 2013.. http://mattmulcahey.wordpress.com/2014/01/01/the-best-horror-posters-of-2013/
Thanks for the heads up. That's very cool to see Mr. Jones with all those posters.
