One of my favorite movie genres is the post-apocalyptic thriller, where the world is about to/has already ended and the plot is about how the main characters survive. Something about reaching into our base instincts to stay alive in any condition speaks volumes to me about the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
So imagine my delight when I came across this series of non-commercial prints by Polish digital designer, Tomasz Opasinski. His gritty approach to reimagining these movie posters reminds me of the dark, grainy consistency that I picture items in a post-apocalyptic world to resemble. Without being too obvious, it is made apparent what obstacle is about strike our course. Tomasz's usage of depth perception is commendable, as it strives to enliven an otherwise flat entity into one fully realized.
Each poster does a great job cutting straight into the heart of the movie and extracting the key ingredients that encompass it. The viewer has no choice but to be fully aware that the object in question (and it really is just one) is what catapults this journey. Talk about being direct.
