JEUNE ET JOLIE | MAKING OF

Ma seconde affiche pour un film de François Ozon a été réalisée chez Silenzio Communication, pour "Jeune & Jolie" (Mars Distribution) avec Marine Vacth.
L'édition vidéo du film reprend l'affiche sur la jaquette. Comme souvent sur les blu-ray des films de François Ozon, un bonus est consacré aux projets d'affiches. Nous sommes deux graphistes à avoir travaillé sur ce film, et voici mes projets, que vous retrouverez dans ce bonus video.

My second poster for a François Ozon's movie has been created at Silenzio Communication, for "Jeune & Jolie" (Mars Distribution) starring Marine Vacth.
The video releases of the film keep the original artwork on front cover. As usual on François Ozon's blu-ray issues, an extra is dedicated to the art of the poster. We were two graphic designers who worked on this project. Here are my suggestions, that you'll find through the video extra.

DANS LA MAISON | MAKING OF

Ma première "vraie" affiche a été faite chez Silenzio Communication, pour le dernier film de François Ozon "Dans La Maison" (Mars Films) avec Fabrice Luchini.

L'édition vidéo de ce film reprend l'affiche en couverture de jaquette. Plus rare, les bonus contiennent un module consacré aux projets d'affiches. Nous sommes plusieurs graphistes à avoir travaillé sur ce film et beaucoup de pistes ont été proposées. Avant de finalement choisir mon projet, une demande était d'interpeller le spectateur en l'impliquant directement dans la relation voyeuriste que suggère le film. Dans le bonus des éditions vidéo, on y peut voir une sélection de tous ces projets, y compris les miens (ci-dessous). 

My very first "real" movie poster has been made for Silenzio Communication, for the François Ozon's last film "In The House" (Mars Films) with Fabrice Luchini.

The video edition of that movie shows the poster on front cover. Most unusual, extras include a section dedicated to poster projects. We were many graphic designers to work on this film, and a lot of projects have been created. Before finally choose mine, a request was to call out the audience involving it straight to the "Peeping Tom" relationship suggested by the film. In the video extras, you can watch a selection of those projects, including mine (below).

WALT, A FILM WITH RYAN GOSLING?


For one week, my art work is the subject of a huge spread on the web. Eulogistic feedbacks and comments I read everywhere go straight to my heart. Thank you everyone, I'm stunned. A picture escaped from my online portfolio turns around the world : the movie poster of WALT by Ron Howard, featuring Ryan Gosling. This poster is a part of a series announcing imaginary films. Indeed, WALT movie is no much more in pre-production than the others…

Unanimous, web users react: "what producers are waiting for to make this movies?" It's precisely with this envy of seeing amazing stories on big screen, that I created these posters (biopic mostly). From the graphic design to the title, through the tagline and the credits, they're in a way "ready to go" projects that haven't other goal to excite our imagination. At present.


For WALT, above, some pics that inspired me. Disney studios first created a toon character called "Oswald The Lucky Rabbit", very similar to the mouse we know. In a train, back to Los Angeles, Walt Disney would have the idea of rounded ears instead of long ones. Mickey Mouse was born.

For the cast, I first thought to David Arquette, then David Schwimmer. But I was unsatisfied by pictures I found. Thank God, I found that Ryan Gosling looked like Walt Disney (for this film, he should lose muscles!). Cherry on the cake, Ryan started his career on… Disney Channel.

In my mind, such a movie should be directed by a storyteller director, very epic, very novelistic. Ron Howard seemed the best choice. Michelle Williams could play the Disney's wife. Michelle and Ryan already played together in Blue Valentine. A little french touch, with the presence of Marion Cotillard, who could play with Ryan to evoke the Walt Disney's military service period in France, especially in Paris. Alan Menken score, of course, the genius of the animated long features of Disney reborn, and finally, a Walt Disney Pictures production, because I didn't see who else could tell this story!

They talked about it (selection)
