attack of the summer movie :: New York Times Cover

tomer :: the brief requiered a broad overview of Summer Movies as a phenomena rather than zooming in on a specific flick (I mean sequel). Jaws comes to mind, since it's such a classic adrenaline ride, but more so it's iconiclly located on the beach- the traditional summer signifier. some initial ideas of a film camera with a fin eyeing the beach were scraped in favor of this sketch bellow, going for a light hearted scale switch playing on the nature of these movies- big, exciting, silly.

  3. I think it could be a bit more dynamic: splashing out of the water perhaps. Giant popcorn coming approaching fast is a lot more daunting than giant popcorn stays still at a safe distance.
    That said I like it very much when you're forced to stretch the concept a bit more, and when you tackle flip subject matter. This is really neat.

  5. i have to disagree with jack noel, i think the idea is to mirror the ridiculousness of jaws-like movies, and the fact that the popcorn is just hanging out in the shallows is perfect for that
