Think about your location options
A mysterious bazaar. An opulent hareem. A Greek bathing chamber. A nondescript hotel room. These are just a few of the intriguing locations where the action happens in the trailer.
Where will you set your masterpiece? And how will you make the main characters shine once they’re there?
Get creative with perspective
Take a closer look at the official poster. It plays with perspective, with characters placed at angles around the border, and the two leads framed by a Renaissance cloudscape worthy of the Sistine Chapel. It's also important to note that these smaller characters should not be forgotten about! Each character helps tell the story of the film, and if you feel particularly fond of a few that aren't "the main two", then show them your creative appreciation.
In the trailer you’ll see Elba’s Djinn morph between supersized giant to average human male (albeit one who looks like Idris Elba). How will your static artwork use perspective to highlight the mythical, magical themes in the movie?
Play with colour, pattern, and texture
This trailer is a feast for the eyes, full to the brim with colourful plumes of shape-shifting smoke, golden threads, bejewelled souks and ornate, Moroccan-tiled palaces. Check out the film stills in your briefing pack for a more detailed view of some of the movie’s most sumptuous scenes.
What kind of palette will you use? Will you strip down and focus on a few key colours – the red in Alithea’s coat, paired with the Djinn’s red robe? Or will you create a heady collage of all the colours and textures of a Turkish bazaar?
Remember that you can truly create anything you wish for
“What would you wish for?” is the film’s tagline, but it’s also the question we want you to answer with your submission(s). What kind of art do you want to make? Romantic and whimsical? Daring and action-packed? Are you inspired by modern or classical work?
This brief is an opportunity to explore any and all hunches, whims, side quests and creative what-ifs. Show us what you can do with a fitting homage to the mystical, mythical, magical, madcap movie.
