The Two Jakes.
We were given a Jack Nicholson film each, picked randomly from a hat, then had to create a movie poster using only two colours plus stock. I was given the film, The Two Jakes, this is a film I have never seen before so I decided to watch the film. After watching the film I then decided it would be a film I would never watch again. I started to look into research into the film and alternative film posters. Although I didn't enjoy the film, I thought it was quite boring, I don't think that everyone will think it's boring. When designing the poster I want it to portray Jack Nicholson as the main character and show his cheeky characteristics. I want to poster to be quite simple, and simply about the Character Jake, as that is all the film portrays to me, and I don't want o do any false advertising, I also think that posters that are quite simple have a stronger message.
If I were to do this brief again I would have prayed for a different film, or even a different actor, as I am not a fan of The Two Jakes. But as this wouldn't happen I would try look for some hidden meanings in the film, something that would entice people into wanting to watch the film to see what happen in it. I am really happy with my final poster design, I tried printing on different stocks and found that thin card that is sand colour works the best. Looking at all of the posters that my peers have done I have seen a massive range and think that they will all work really well together as a set.
