Movie poster group photo

Students have the task to create an archetypical “Movie poster group photo”. They form groups, and select a movie genre they will be working in (comedy, sci-fi, thriller, super heroes…). They will chose a setting, costumes, accessoires…

They may need to use effects such as green-screen backgrounds, projected background, artificial smoke.

They will need to apply postproduction to match the tone and atmosphere of the chose genre.

Finally, the photograph needs to be combined with typography and movie poster credits.

Some examples of different group photo styles:

Stock Photography

The students are requested to create “stock photography” of some topic – for instance, their city. They will create lots of photographs (maybe also video) of different key locations, and publish them online, on stock photography platforms.

The produced content can serve as base material for further briefs, becoming part of the schools photography database. This will raise questions of how to manage, to share and to classify such a database.
