Short Film Poster Art - The Prisoner by Anthony Aitman

I sometimes get to photograph film posters. This is the latest one I’ve done.

There was a scene in the film where he’s drowing in the bath, so I thought that would be the perfect place to photograph a good movie poster. The film is about depression and dealing with it, so I thought this photo showing him struggling with his depression in a moment of wanting to end his life, would suit this movie’s poster well. It would also be a very eye catching visual image that would hopefully draw people into wanting to watch the film.

I also took some BTS photos as well.

Cradle - Short Film Poster Art and BTS Photos. by Anthony Aitman

I was asked to go and take some photos for a short film called Cradle. It’s a film by Joe Facer & Adam Sandy who run a production studio called, Dreams Of Summer Productions.

It’s a very dark film that needed a quiet a cryptic poster art that had tones of darkness and sadness to it. it also had to be a familiar scene that everyone is aware of. That’s why I went with photographing the scene where the main character is digging a grave. I thought this would have the best shots for the poster art they where looking for.

Here are the finished poster I photographed and edited for them.

God's Broken Things - Short Film Poster Art, BTS & Screening of The Film. by Anthony Aitman

I was asked by my fellow friend and DP Adam Sandy, who I work with on many projects like Escape Sessions and Short Films to come and photograph the BTS and poster art for a short film he was working on. I of course said yes, which led me to a church in Morton just outside of Newark at around 10pm. They where filming all night long which until 5am the next day. I ended up staying that long as well so it was quite the long shoot. It was well worth it as I got some amazing photos to use for the poster art.

HERE ARE THE FINAL POSTERS.

All these photos where taken between takes as they where practicing and figuring out how to film the scene. So I never needed to pose any of the actors. I just let them get on with it and I snapped away unnoticed.

Here are the behind the scene photos I took of one of the shoot night.

After the filming had all been completed and the film was edited up and ready to be show. They had a screening of the film at the local village where the church was they used. It was a great evening and everyone really enjoyed the film. I was lucky enough to photograph there as well.

The film has now been entered into many film festivals and we are all hoping it will win some awards. The film won’t be out for viewing for some time, so until then you can watch the trailer down below.
