The Movie Poster Class: Critical Making
Students work in the screen printing studio to create their own movie poster art. I developed the course (official title: “Interpreting and Making the Visual Culture of Hollywood”) first with art professor Ryan O’Malley, at right in black cap. The course is essentially a workshop in visual communication, as students work to translate “what a film is like” into poster or sequential art.
Working on Psycho and Goldfinger posters
Students cut rubylith to make poster art designed after screening films and discussing Hollywood production practices and cultural history of the 1960s.
