Before Photoshop

Currently, I am teaching myself Photoshop because it’s a very valuable tool for the field I want to go into. I found an interesting collection of pictures from one of my favorite websites Imgur.com which is kind of like Reddit.

The following are movie posters created by an artist named Drew Struzan. Before technology was as it is today, creating movie posters was done by some really talented artists from around the world. I feel all of these are far more interesting than the movie posters we see today which seem to always just be pictures of the main actor from the film.

This is a rare concept piece from Struzan that was not used but looks awesome.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

(Great movie by the way)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

The Great Muppet Caper

Back to the Future Trilogy

This poster was unused, and switched to a different poster.

The poster is much better than the movie. 😦
