Studio Brief 3: Alternative Movie Poster

OUGD505

Brief: Produce a film poster for the given Jack Nicholson film, ‘Studs Lonigan’ Response: The Pool Table is based on the films central point of focus, the pool hall, where the gangs friendship is cemented and where a few of thier shenanigans take place. The quote used for the poster highlights an adult Studs Lonigans desire to relive the years of his youth when he doesn’t have to face the realities of life. The colour scheme is based on the traditional colour of a pool table, with the coloured balls shown through experimental tints of the original shade. The typeface is ‘Desdemona’ which shows the glamour as well as the opportunity that embodies the 1920’s era that the film is based in.

Studio Brief 3: Alternative Movie Poster

OUGD505

Brief: Produce a film poster for the given Jack Nicholson film, ‘Studs Lonigan’ Response: The 4 Ace cards are based around a quote from the film which plays on the themes of underachievement and Stud Lonigan’s lack of effort towards bettering his life, as he believes that opportunity will find him and not the other way around. Traditionally, playing cards use the colours black, white and red with the use of strong intricate patterns on the back of the cards reflecting the shapes of collateral usually found at a pool table. The typeface is ‘Desdemona’ which shows the glamour as well as the opportunity that embodies the 1920’s era that the film is based in.
