Day 51 - Misadventure
I’ve been working on the design identity for the indie film The Misadventures of Sam Slade, a modern crime noir-ish dark comedy being made in Chicago. I’m animating the opening title sequence and designing the website as well. This is the poster I created for the film.
My process started by printing a still from the film featuring the titular character on my standard inkjet, then began to tear it apart. I crumpled it up, soaked in water, tore it into shreds, and finally ended up with this image. I’m very happy with the outcome. I always love to play with physical materials before digitally compositing anything. Its nice when the physical bits make it into the finished product.
