There can be transparency or not
You will have the choice of either a Re-Envisioned Movie Poster or Persuasive Poster
We will print to the LASER PRINTER as a "proof". This does not need to be printed to the ink jet nor mounted unless you want to. We will post the prints in the hallway.

Persuasive Poster (PSA or Propaganda)
There must be text in your work and at least one image.
Innovate through your layout, use of shapes (including negative space), use of text, and the combinations of your images. Don't forget your compositing skills! Limit your color palette.
The content of your work will either be political in nature, or a public service announcement of some kind. You must communicate an idea and persuade your viewer.

- Create a Poster for the film
- Use the Text that you find to be necessary. It can simply be the title of the film.

Find something about the film that makes it iconic and use that as your subject.
