Revisiting this Visual assignment, instead of creating a poster based on quotes from a secret agent, I wanted instead to make a misquoted poster including 3 movies from the 80’s about dance: Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, and Footloose.
Here’s my original rendition of this assignment:
Here’s my revised poster:
Here I have a picture from Flashdance, a quote from Dirty Dancing, and a character from Footloose!
“Find a picture of any secret agent you would like, preferably a fairly well-known one. Next, pick a quote from a similar secret agent character. Finally, attribute said quote to a third similar character. You want the characters you chose to be well-known but also similar enough that people would confuse them with one another.”
I’ve made a poster of Matrix’s Morpheus, holding the iconic red and blue pills, with a quote from Sean Connery’s James Bond “Never say Never Again” giving credit to Neo, another Matrix character.
I love the Matrix and always confused the characters names with one another, specifically Neo and Morpheus. I was quick to find out that I am not the only one! I chose James Bond to quote because while it is recognizable, it is a general sounding quote.
I was able to make this poster entirely with an app on my phone called Pic Collage. I found a picture of Morpheus (credited here) and cropped it in the app. I then typed in my quote and positioned it in the correct spot like a poster.
Below I’ve attached my poster and you can find the original assignment HERE.
