Five years since release and the alternative MOON posters are still appearing. This time we got one from @3ftDeep over on Twitter featuring a DNA theme that’s seems a nice fit with this SOURCE CODE one from Daniel Norris.
As always, further detail from the artist himself:
“I love films. I especially love films like MOON, a wonderfully compact story skillfully & minimally told. It reminds me of the short stories of Philip K Dick or Ray Bradbury.
No huge battle scenes or massive apocalyptical special effects (not that I mind either of these) but something more akin to Silent Running, a credit to the few actors, limited locations & of course superb direction.
I find I can always find creative inspiration from these kind of movies, especially with the films that stick with me, as MOON has.
I’ve wanted to do my take on a MOON poster since first seeing it a few years ago. This idea has been in the back of my mind since then (I have a very full ‘in progress’ folder on my computer!) but never seem to find the time. I’m a freelance graphic designer by trade & my alternative movies posters are done when I’m able to squeeze them in or when I need to take a break from the daily grind, to be purely creative for my own sanity.
The idea behind this poster was, first and foremost, to produce something graphically interesting enough to make you want to watch the film if you hadn’t seen it, without giving anything away but to also give further meaning once you have. I hope this is what I’ve achieved and, if you have seen it, understand what I was trying to convey.”
