10A Movie Poster Project


Message/Audience: My message is humorous, intended to make the Mom the one who is “home alone.” It’s for all parents who sometimes wish for some time alone.

This was an interesting learning project. Being a recent “empty nester,” I figured that “Home Alone” was a good description of my Mom life now. I enjoyed working with layers in Photoshop. I had to come up with a blue background that matched the sky in my picture. It was fun taking pictures and working with them in Lightroom, then adding them one at a time. I had to erase the line between my picture and background through blending, and Sister Larson helped immensely with that. She also helped me get the yellow home outline in the title. In addition, I did a cutout of my picture and positioned it on the page. I added the words at the bottom to tell what it is about and who the stars are.

Font: Title: Times New Roman (serif), Body Copy: Movie Poster Font (sans serif)

Morgan Hartman: This is hilarious about the “empty nester” take on the movie! Love it! I think you did a good job cutting out your image and blending the two images. Only thing that stands outs to me is the lower case “e” on the title. Is that supposed to be lower cased or upper cased?

Nancy Wells: It’s lower case in the Home Alone movie titles. (the little “e” all alone at the end?)

Morgan Hartman: Nancy Wells awesome I think leave it then to match the original titles

Nancy Wells: The lower case “e” is also tilted a little in the original title, but I didn’t know how to do that. Thanks for the critique!

Kristen Larson: To do the tilted e, you would delete the “e” from the word Alone and write it as its own layer so you can move it how you need to.

Shelley Guthrie Tiffany: This looks great. I like how you matched the credits box with the beautiful blue sky.

Dee Selph Wightman I really like how this turned out. Personally, I would remove the blue text box at the bottom and just have the text.

I agreed with Shelley Guthrie Tiffany about matching the credits box with the blue sky, so I left it that way. I listened to Sister Larson and tried to lighten up the shadow on the roof by the chimney, so it didn’t look like sky. I also optimized the print when I saved it to lose the pixilation in the title.
