Design Assignment: Groom Poster (4 and a 1/2 pts) – An Ice Cold Love Triangle (collaborative characters)

It was about time I made a Groom poster and I have to say, I think it is beautiful. Kim Roehl and I collaborated to create this Titanic poster, featuring Sebastian Crane as Cal, Groom as Jack, and the lovely Sasha Kellogg as Rose. Initially, we were searching for a shot from the film where all three characters had their faces towards the camera, but kept running into pictures where they were either in profile or one was absent from the shot. So we decided that the two male characters could face the camera and we could cover the back of Rose’s head with Sasha’s photo. For Sebastian Crane, I felt he embodied the character of Cal Hockley in Titanic because of the arrogance he can frequently exude. The line “I always win. One way or another,” is a line I remember from this movie when Cal tells Jack he will not be ensured a seat on a lifeboat. We placed Groom as Jack Dawson because well, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love either of them? :) Kim had the one photo of Sasha Kellogg that we felt would be a perfect reaction to having two men wanting her. She has the look saying “I’m so loved,” which fits with her femme fatale persona. We also chose to do Titanic because it is a very well-known movie and we wanted to put a spin on it.

Kim was responsible for finding the Sasha and Groom photos as well as removing the backgrounds on all of the head shots using PowerPoint (now I’ve learned how to do that thanks to her). I found the photo of Sebastian, this scene from Titanic, and the title “Titanic.”

    • Kim did the cropping on this one :). She’s a boss. I just came up with Titanic as a concept and found the pics of the scene and Sebastian Crane.
