Film posters typically capture the essence of a film in a single frame with the colors and photography mirroring the movie’s overall mood and message, but Van Orton Design, a duo of twin brothers from Turin, Italy, has challenged these conventions by creating a series of alternative neon film posters for some of the world’s most famous films.
The reinterpretations are illustrated with a perspective drawing technique called “one point perspective,” in which a single point near the center of the frame converges with all lines (both perpendicular and parallel). These retro-futuristic illustrations are characterized by vibrant neon colors with thick black lines that lead your eyes to the center with great appeal. Ultimately, they offer new interpretations of hits such as “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” “Pulp Fiction” and “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
