The goal was to design a movie poster series of 3 movies that seem connected by an abstract theme. I tackled it by connecting ‘Passengers’, to ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Cast Away’ based on a common feeling of loneliness.
When I thought of this emotion, an image of an empty, abandoned vending machine came to mind. I created 3 ghostly automatons that are all in a way separating a metaphorical object from their usual environments. In the case of Dumbo, the little elephant isn’t literally separated, but feels excluded because of the bullying, whereas both the main characters in ‘Cast Away’ and ‘Passengers’, brought to life by Tom Hanks and Chris Pratt, are literally separated, in location and time.
