Movie Poster, Package and Ticket
In my Design class, we were given an assignment to draft an idea for a movie in which we are the main character, and create a minimalist poster, as well as a package and ticket for the premiere. In my film, I am an identical twin who is arrested for a murder I did not commit. When I come to the realization that I am being framed by my twin, I struggle to fight against her in the case because the only evidence that was found leads to me. The investigation continues, which creates conflict between my sister and I until she finally has the opportunity to talk to me alone in an interrogation room, and admits that she didn’t actually do it. Eventually, it is revealed that the murderer was our long lost fraternal triplet who also happened to be the detective that was assigned to the case.
To create the poster, package, and ticket I used Adobe Illustrator. First, I focused on the main scene I wanted to highlight from my story, and drafted ideas of how to portray the scene in a minimalist, simple style. Once I finally chose an idea I liked and a color scheme that coordinated with the mood of my scene, I used the pen tool to create shapes to fill with color. For my poster, I also created my own font. When going about this, I first drafted it using the brush tool and focused on a typewriter style resembling that of a case file, before going back over it using the pen tool. After formatting the title and adding the billing block, I began working on my package and ticket. In order for it to coordinate with the poster and ticket, I decided to make a package that resembled an evidence file using Adobe Illustrator. After creating the file, I also designed a ticket that could fit in the package, and followed the theme by resembling a homicide crime report.

Reflecting back on this project, I feel very proud with the final products. Personally, I enjoyed learning more about minimalist style, and how much thought goes into designs that look so simple. Having the opportunity to not only create my own movie poster, but also design my own font was a very educational and enlightening experience. Working more with Adobe Illustrator throughout this project has helped me develop my skills and begin to learn even more about the program. Overall, this project allowed me to learn more about design in marketing and the process behind creating actual products for movies.
In my Digital Media class during this section, we were given the freedom to create a video showcasing any skill we learned in any of our classes in Freestyle. For this project, I collaborated with my sister to create a piece of music using Garageband and ROLI Instruments, as well as a animated cover using Adobe Photoshop and Animate. I am extremely content with this video because not only does it showcase our final piece, it also provides the viewer with an inside look of how the piece of music and animation were made.
