We were tasked with creating a film poster for our assigned movie to be featured in a chosen film festival.
I was assigned The Third Man, a noir murder mystery film, so I decided to create a black and white poster designed like an evidence map. I paced the film in the Cold Bodies Film Festival to capitalize on the murder mystery aspect and open the festival possibilities to murder mystery movies from any era and movie genre.
The final poster connects each major plot point through artifacts and photos from the film. The noir style of the movie is translated through the black and white coloring and the type-writer-like typeface used for the movie title. The headline is created through the intertwined thread connecting each aspect of the movie, and the composition is completed by the festival information stamped on the bottom.
