The Brief and General Discussion

Deadline extension - Monday 18th April 12.00 midday GMT



Challenge Brief
You're invited to create a mock movie poster for a film entitled 'Atomhawk'. The film can be any genre (except pornographic), set in any time period and location.

The finished artwork should adhere to the standard movie poster ratio of 27w 40h. Actual dimensions are up to you, but please make it large enough to judge! Aim for over 1280 pixels as the winning entries may be printed.

Feel free to include some typography as well, such as the title, tagline, you can even put in a billing block if you want. Above all, be creative!

Things to think about:
Your artwork will be better if you put some thought into the plot of the movie you're portraying and also the style of the artwork and the composition of the poster. Most movie posters try to encapsulate what the general theme and story of the film is.

• Think about the style of the poster, is it a classic character/action montage (Indianna Jones, Star Wars) or is it to be a more contemporary approach featuring more of a key moment in the film, for example the posters from 300, Gladiator etc.

• Who are the stars of the film? What kind of costumes do they wear?

• Where is the film set? What kind of atmosphere would the film have?

• What role does the word Atomhawk play in the film? Is it a character? An organisation? A weapon...or something else?
