2001 A Space Odyssey

2001 A Space Odyssey: James WhiteThe image bookmarking system at ffffound.com has become a personal invaluable resource for inspiration, which is where I recently spotted this poster for Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey. I have always loved Kubrick’s use of slow camera arcs and long slow pans to add his special flavor of atmosphere to an otherwise uninteresting scene.

I started thinking about his style coupled with that very simple poster for 2001, and thought many styles of executed properly could accurately represent the movie in poster form, especially with the 21-minute amazing psychedelic scene near the end of the movie. I decided to put my own spin on the poster, and tried to make it look like an old beta-max or vhs cover.
