We’re proud to announce we have an official poster for Pieces.
Dean Harris and Dan Sunley talk briefly about how the look of the poster came about and how the digital artwork was created:
Dan: “I tend to sketch posters out before I write the scripts – as a kind of visual log-lining; it’s an easier way for me to hone the premise of the film and give it definite mood.
The first impression of a poster is the one that lasts so I tried to keep it as simple as possible with one or two added details that you’d find on a second or third glance. The sketch was also a natural way for me to pass the ideas to Dean so he could create the artwork.”
Dean: “Dan had initially done the hard work of creating the poster design with a quick sketch, based on a discussion about how to show the film’s plot with just one simple graphic.
We both like old movies posters, particularly ones that are minimal, clean and low tech. I love the idea of creating a design with modern tools and making it look like it was created from paper or card.
My starting point was the colour palette and typeset from previous designs I created for social media and the film’s website, keeping on brand. After taking some inspiration from other posters of the horror and thriller genre, I finished with the design you see. Which I hope gains the attention of the viewer, but more importantly creates some mystery.”
