Welcome Movie Poster Distraction Back in 2013, I was working hard to establishing my current business Opus Creative. The days were long and being self-employed during a recession was not an easy path. With most new businesses I took whatever work I could get and I wasn’t getting the most creative briefs. Then one day I got an email from a chap named Seadna. He had seen me post some of the Lisa inspired movie posters on my social channels and requested a commission. “I almost immediately ran over the allotted time for the project and got lost in the sheer joy of translating a movie into one piece of visual communication.” I wasn’t thinking or looking to take on this kind of work as I was mainly a brand and web consultant, but it seemed like fun. The titles were given and the brief wasn’t prescriptive. It was open and I was going to get paid to do something I want to do in my free time. I almost immediately ran over the allotted time for the project and got lost in the sheer joy of translating a movie into one piece of visual communication. Food for Thought Seadna was happy with the work and despite the joy I had during the process I abandoned my short stint as an illustrator and focused on the day job. I gradually built my business, took on a business partner (Gareth) and swore that I would revisit the poster idea when I had the time. Almost a decade later, a year long pandemic and a lack of soccer training I had no excuses!
