Contact Movie Poster by Diana-Huang Contact Movie Poster by Diana-Huang
This was a class assignment. We were to pick a movie and redesign the movie poster as if it was going to be re-released. I love this movie and was trying to recapture the beauty and tension.

I landed here from a wormhole. Lovely composition even when it lacks golden ratio. Instant fav. :thumbsup:

I love this movie VERY VERY much. It haunts me from the very first seconds.. for so many years by now. I am already creating a new deviation about Contact :) I must paint something ... I 've just seen the movie again.. and again... and again... :) I must take a short break from Twilight :D

Greetings, nice taste for movies :)

Its a great movie written by a really amazing guy! You should check out the novel version, if you haven't already. It is a bit different than the film. Both are great and say so much about everything we are. I'm glad you are as passionate about that movie as I am. :)

Aloha, sorry for the lateness of my "Devious Thoughts"! I also love this movie as a matter of fact. Hope you don't mind if I give a few comments. The first thing which caught my eye was the sharp lines at both the top and bottom of the center images, which I think could be easily remedied by fading it into the black background. Also near the title I feel the red star interferes with the text and brings it forward, thus bringing it to the same height as the center. I think if you perhaps moved the red star down near to where the "Jodie" part is then there could be a little more action down there.

If you do like the sharp lines in the center, I think it might be best to include a brightened background, perhaps one with more stars, or a larger shot of the earth at a nice 45 degree angle to give the center more height. Immediately my eye is drawn to the giant title (via contrast), then the midsection (colorful neighbor and natural direction), so indeed you do seem to have some control over what is viewed first.

Last but not least I think the midsection would be more interesting if zoomed in about 2x, as the outlines of the hatch seem to form two separate images - but that's all just opinion. All in all it brings back some great memories.
