The Parkland College Graphic Design Poster Project

The 2012 Posters (click on image for larger view)
In 2012, one of Professor Paul Young's assignment for his Parkland College Graphic Design III class (GDS 222) was to re-imagine popular movie posters in the style of Jason Munn, an American Graphic and Poster Artist (you can read more about him on Wikipedia). I spent an hour with the class talking about Rentertainment, our niche, and our outlook on things (including the current business climate, movies, music, etc). We started with a list of almost 100 potential movie selections. Each of the 12 students in the class chose and created three posters. During a subsequent open class critique, we narrowed those down to the 16 posters we thought would represent That's Rentertainment best -- those were printed full-size and hung in the store. Here are those 16 posters (click on the image for a larger view)...
Pulp Fiction Bridge on the River Kwai Pink Flamingos Big Lebowski
Modern Times Sound of Music This is Spinal Tap Raiders of the Lost Arc
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Star Wars M*A*S*H
Taxi Driver Seven Samurai Frankenstein Juno
