PERSONAL PROJECT - 'LOVE AND LET GO'
I have long enjoyed the films of Spike Jonze and his latest release 'Her' is by no means any exception. Perfectly pitched it delves into the world of technology, social networking and the way in which we relate to one another in the 21st Century. So as way of a minor tribute I thought I'd have a go at my own 'Her' inspired movie poster mash up.
Now it is definitely no secret that I am quite a major fan of the artist Robert McGinnis. I find his movie poster work nothing short of breathtaking which appeals massively to both the cinephile and the artist in me. Perhaps some of his most iconic work has been the posters that he produced to accompany the classic James Bond films on their release. Taking the image he did for 'Live and Let Die' as my starting point I thought it might be slightly amusing to recast the shy and retiring Theodore Twombly as the larger than life super spy and build out from there.
