Cannes poster

The Orator #3: I was asked to produce a teaser poster for the Cannes Film Festival. Unfortunately I only had a couple of days to create it - from scratch - as no photography for the selected option currently existed.

Solution? For the figure, I set up, lit and rendered a character inside the 3D modeling application, Poser. For the floor I tiled an image of some existing flax until I had a large enough mat. The rest of my time was spent in PhotoShop trying to tie it all together.

I don't think the end result was very successful and I wish I could have spent more time on it. On the other hand, it was a good lead-in for the main Orator poster in terms of lighting, layout and the kind of problems I was going to be dealing with.
