Project Description: Imagine that your summer reading novel Looking For Alaska is being made into a movie (again, but don’t use the actual movie posters—make your own). Create a movie poster that advertises the upcoming movie. Here are some examples of posters of books made into movies.
Must be created on a large poster board (22” x 28”)
Title must be in large writing and should stand out on your movie poster.
Your name should appear on the poster as either the director or producer.
A major illustration or collage should be the focus of your poster. It should give a good idea of the theme of the novel.
The main characters of the novel will be the cast in your movie. Choose famous movie stars or television stars that you know of and “cast” them in the different character roles for your movie. The stars of your movie should be named on your poster, and they may or may not be a part of the majr illustration or collage.
The movie poster must have a slogan or catch phrase that represents the mood or theme of the novel (see the Deadpool “Feel the Love Valentines Day” for an example).
A rating of the novel must be on the poster.
Recommended for the movie fan seeking a suspenseful and exciting adventure!
OR Not recommended for the movie fan that hopes to be entertained and thrilled.
This movie poster should reflect several weeks of thought and work. Detail, creativity, and neatness will be heavily considered in the grading process.
Remember to follow the scoring rubric when creating your poster so that you include all of the requirements.
You may draw, paint, use photoshop, or use any type of art you would like but it doe sneed to be your own work. Do not ask a friend or family member to illustrate for you. If you borrow images for a collage or photoshop, make sure they are arranged in a way that shows your creativity.
