The Right Image

I’ve been revamping the A Life’s Work web site recently and that has me thinking about still images that represent the moving image that is my film. If I had to choose one image for a poster,* what would it be?

The right image?
This image was pulled from the sample.

Thankfully, I don’t have to do that yet. But I had to choose eight images for the homepage, images that not only represented the film, but also had some relationship to the navbar.

Take a look at what I came up with and let me know what you think.


* This link will take you to a slide show that contains 19 Polish film posters (not Polish films, necessarily). They are graphic, as opposed to photographic, and I think more eye catching than posters you’d see in the U.S. I find it interesting that the posters don’t rely on the star’s image, but strive to capture the film’s essence to “sell” it.
