All Creative,
Talenthouse Team
mother!, Darren Aronofsky’s highly anticipated psychological horror-thriller is now in cinemas. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.

To amplify the launch of the film in September 2017, Paramount has hand-selected thirteen unique artists to create artwork inspired by the mysterious, suspenseful, and captivating world of mother!

Only a few items are available for reference so let your imagination flow! An audio file, which was emailed individually, should be used as a main inspiration for your artwork. This promotional poster can also be used as inspiration, but please note that Paramount would like you to be inspired by - not imitate - the poster. Artists may include the mother! title treatment logo in their artwork which can be downloaded here.

Whether it's a painting, or an alternative poster design, the studio is looking for captivating and imaginative artwork to help drive promotion and excitement socially across the film's marketing and digital channels. Artists are also encouraged to video record/time-lapse their creative process which would be an additional social exposure opportunity! Artists can download the layered audio files for mother! here.

These thirteen pieces of artwork may be featured in the mother! marketing campaign leading up to the release of the film. The Contracted Artists will receive $1,500 after final completion of the work.
