Dear Woody Allen
A few weeks back I was bored, very bored. My mother gave me a challenge. To work on a quick Poster for Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight”. I had seen the trailer the day before and liked it. I like anything Woody Allen makes. So I had a look on google for some images from the film to work with. Nothing really came up, so I took a few screen grabs from the Yahoo Trailer. 20 mins later came up with these.
Sent them to my mother and said there you go … hope you like them !
That’s it challenge over. She liked them. She liked them so much that she put them up on her tumblr blog. She has a terrific tumblr site filled with postings on history, writers, artists, photography and a lot on world cinema.
Well … people started liking the poster. So much so that people thought it was the actual poster for the film.
Cut to yesterday, the official poster is released.
Yes the poster has the Woody Allen font Windsor, yes it has Emma Stone and Colin Firth looking quirky. It’s a pretty average Hollywood poster.
Thing is, I didn’t have months to play around with it. I didn’t have loads of photos from the film set.
What I’d like to do is to actually get the opportunity to work on a honest to goodness poster for this film. So if anyone knows anybody at Sony Pictures Classics or anybody in Woody Allen’s camp please contact me.
And let’s make some Magic !!
