In this course, we are going to take on two movie poster design projects. Not all of us are movie poster designers but you can use things you learn in others areas of your design work. Watch the process and you might pick something up you never thought of.
The first one is an action movie poster inspired by the movie Expendables. I like the gritty look and the use of black and white images and color elements to create a unique look. Some interesting ways of using HDR Toning and the Black & White adjustment among other cool tricks.
The second poster is a cool sci-fi poster for a fake adventure movie. In this project, I show you a rather interesting way to use 3D to create special effects. Not mention some masking, flares, textures, and other cool stuff like that.
In addition to exercise downloads, you can also download the finished layered file.
