Movie Poster Scenes

Movie posters always end up becoming the iconic image for the movie, used to promote it and seen on the walls and at ticket stands in movie theaters everywhere. Some of the time a poster will be custom made, or photographed just for marketing, but other times it can be made using a scene from a movie - an actual still or a scene that inspires a design. This short video by Candice Drouet takes a look at a big batch of movie posters and the scenes they're inspired by. The framing is a bit funky, because sometimes I just want to see the scene more than the poster, but it's still a good juxtaposition to see the exact moment in the film. Enjoy!

Thanks to Kottke for the tip on this. Description from Vimeo for "1.000.000 Frames XII / Movie Posters": " I like watching movie posters and try to remember from what scene they taken from." Filmmaker/artist Candice Drouet explains her visual project "My Life In 1.000.000 Frames": "I have collected images from all the movies I have seen in my life and split them in different themes." She is making 100 different videos, and this is one of those videos covering movie posters and the scenes they're from. There are so many good ones in this set, but I really love City of God, Requiem for a Dream and Lost in Translation the most. You?

Great video, but had to mute it. I like Popeye, but man, that song...

Cool concept. I can't help but laugh when I think about what some people thought when they walked into A NEW HOPE after seeing the poster.
