Movie Poster – Charlie’s Angels

This project was really fun. The most time-consuming part for me was pick what original movie poster to recreate. I talked with some friends about movie options. After going over a few of our favorite movies I nailed down Charlie’s Angels. I’ve never actually seen either of the movies (old or new) but I really like the idea of sisterhood, and working together as a team to accomplish a goal.

This is the original movie poster that I wanted to recreate

Movie Poster – The Process

The trickiest part was getting the angle of my photo correct. It was also difficult to get the lighting just right. I would’ve liked to shoot the picture an hour earlier so the sun would be higher, but I was running out of time and had to do my best with what I had to work with. 

Once I got the angle right I had to get my reflector positioned just right (held by my very helpful brother) so we could see our faces without having the sky blown out.

Movie Poster – Editing

After capturing the image, I had to edit the photo then add all the other elements of the movie poster. I used Adobe Illustrator to duplicate the pink angel wings, positioned behind me and my roommates. I also had to search for a font that would match the text of the title. I used a gradient on the text and the wings to copy the style of the original poster. I could’ve spent more time stylizing the movie poster, but I think it turned out pretty nice.
