This is the poster art for Osyloscope Pictures Comedy 'Break up at a wedding'. This was actually my first non genre comedy so it was something of a different to work on. The challenge with comedies comes in trying to create something amusing visually, representing some of the various 'gags' and characters in the movie to sell it to the viewer.
So a montage seemed to be the best direction on this design, taking influence from classic 80s comedy posters as for me they standout as the most memorable (not just blocks of colour with actors faces in them). and then mix that with the more modern symmetrical poster design style as you see in the work of Tyler Stout and Randy Ortiz.
The two camera guys document the whole thing (this is a found footage comedy) so they frame the proceedings. Finally i wanted to display some of the carnage along the bottom with the introduction of the couple looking despairingly a good old streaking and the emergency services being brought in, then of course cant forget the booze !
