Reworking Titles is a project by graphic artist Dan Sherratt where he re-vamps and re-imagines film posters so that they become all new different levels of awesome. The posters are available to buyÂ here.
Dan is away for the next 7 weeks and he kindly asked me to choose some of my favourites from his collection to feature on EatSleepLiveFilm.com. Â A task that I do with joy as a huge fan of Dan and his work.
Jordanâ€™s thoughts on the poster:
I thought that this poster was a perfect choice for this week as the highly anticipated UK Blu Ray of the film was finally released. Â What I love about the poster itself is that it plays with what is seen as the most famous Apocalypse Now poster, the river, the red sky,Â theÂ helicopters but instead of a burning sun there’s Marlon Brando’s bald head. Â It works though and if you think about it in the context of the movie, the river in the poster runs straight to Col. Kurtz. Â I’m not sure if that’s exactly what Dan’s intentions were with the poster but it’s what I take away from it.
