In design lab four we were split into groups and given a brief to create a book cover illustration and a title credit’s for a film πŸ™‚ we could chose from a list provided of all provocative and iconic films and books. The group i was in chose the book “Frankenstein” & “Psycho” for the film, this was ironically the same choice as many of the other groups but i think it was because they were the most well known and we all had seen/ read them. For the book cover, our creation didn’t go as well as we had hoped because in our creative freedom we forgot the fundamental thing that book covers are normally landscape! but we created text in an interesting manner and i think it was a good warm up for creating the title credits that went much better. I found in these design labs that each week i am becoming much more free and expressive with what i and the groups are creating. This week for the title credits we did something even we did not expect, we started thinking about Psycho and the obvious thing to represent was the blood dripping, but we decided to focus on the shower scene where the water goes down the plughole and we played with the idea of putting water in a clear plastic file and sealing it. We then used this over the overhead projector to create new and unusual textures and this was really fun to experiment with. We then followed on from water to thinking about how hair goes down a plughole ( gross but definitely abstract). We all decided that to create the typography for the credits, we would use our own hair to create an example of the bottom of the bath in an abstract way, referencing an iconic scene in the film without giving away its bloody thriller nature. I think this was really successful and we all bonded as a group over this activity and we found it really fun and interesting to work in such a free minded and crazy manner! I hope i can be this crazy and free in my FMP, but i find it much easier when you are surrounded by the encouragement of your group and i really liked my groups outcomes πŸ™‚

below are some photographs from the day and the finished title credits
