West Suffolk College students create graphics designs in film exhibition
College students launched an exhibition in an independent cinema on Monday.
Graphics students from West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds created a series of three different film posters based on a film director chosen by their tutor, Sophie Harvey.
The launch of the exhibition, called ‘Director’s Cut’ took place in the Abbeygate cinema.
The posters were framed and arranged on a black backdrop, with family and friends of the students going along to view their artwork at the launch.
Andrea Holmes, Abbeygate Cinema’s marketing manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with students of West Suffolk College again and happy to offer exhibition space in order that their artwork can be displayed and enjoyed by the general public.
“’Director’s Cut’ is a great fit with us and we hope that this collaboration provides an incentive for high achievement by the students.”
The exhibition will run for two weeks and will be judged during that time, with the winning student being awarded a prize from the cinema.
Among the artwork created, Sasha Cornish, 18, from Thetford focused on Spike Jonze, creating posters about the films ‘Her’ and ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.
Sasha said: “We went through and picked out important areas of the films and created the posters.”
Jake Childs, 17, from Sudbury, studied director Judd Apatow creating posters about the movies ‘Trainwreck’, ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘This is 40’.
