THE TRUMAN SHOW
CLIENT: PRIVATE COMMISSION
"I hereby proclaim this planet Trumania of the Burbank Galaxy." - Truman Burbank
To say this film is underrated, is an understatement. Though rarely mentioned it seems when any one speaks of Jim Carrey's filmography - I personally think The Truman Show is one of his best films. One that has always resonated with me on a personal level. There is a lot of deep dark sadness to this film, although it wears a sunny comedic disposition.
This concept was loosely inspired by artist John Craigs work. Many will know his iconic album artwork for Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness. I wanted to capture the quirkiness of this film while still trying to give a peek into its darker side. The decompsing of an old theatre stage and crude props around Truman like a sweater thats unravelling.
This poster was a blast to do and Im really happy I got to delve into that world.
