Movie Poster for a feature length Documentary, titled, Dance the Past Into the Future.
A film about dying traditions amidst rapid change in northeast Turkey. An inspirational element that's living on is the Horon folk dance, shared among the 3 generations alive today.
Watch the movie trailer & read the film synopsis here:
The 27"x40" poster will be used at film festivals. The poster artwork will also be modified for DVD packaging, postcards, & business cards. Final deliverable will be the 27"x40" Poster as a JPG & .PSD (layered, 300dpi) with all graphic element source files included (if any, ie. Textured BG).
Possible Concepts/Elements: City, & Nature, Music & Dance, Past & Future, Young & Old, Change, Hope, Community, Looking forward without forgetting the past. Foreign location/culture, yet familiar humanity. Physical elements could be textures like wood, stone, water, classic design elements from Ottoman times (but not too heavy on that).
The prominent visual features should be the Horon Dance, the Bagpipe &/or the Kemenche (violin-like instrument). Design can have one or all three. Design can be photos, or illustrations, realistic or highly graphic, very straightforward or simply suggestive of what one might see in the film. We don't have the best promo photography, mostly video still shots, so lots of creativity (and design acrobatics) can be used in the poster. There isn't one stellar photo that embodies the film. So enjoy the challenge :)
