Bedroom Scenes

Poster Design

April 2011 saw the release of my first independent film, following at least two years' worth of drastic rewrites, casting nightmares, and personal dramas. The result, the world's first-ever fan production based around the characters of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," was loved by many.

For the poster design, I wanted to convey the idea of peeking 'behind closed doors.' The film brings forth sometimes-scintillating personal details from the lives of the characters, so I chose to give the poster a dirty, unorganized look - the tagline is written on a hastily torn scrap of paper with smudges and harsh, pointed lettering; the Polaroids are grimy and worn, displaying the characters in provocative poses and expressions; elements look dropped onto the page, as if they have just been dumped from someone's private shoebox; and the lighting feels awkward and claustrophobic, as if someone is shining a flashlight directly onto the poster.

Of course, familiar "Rocky Horror" elements are included - the film's title uses the standard 'Double Feature' font, and I was able to create a suitable background texture by manipulating a stock photo of a fishnet stocking.
