Not a Movie Watcher

Original DS 106 Assignment: Favorite Movie Quote (2 stars)

I promise that I will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.* This is my version because my mom does not like me swearing, on anything. Seriously. I am NOT a good movie watcher. I will fall asleep 8/10 times, even if we are at a movie theater. I wish I would have slept through the Multiverse of Madness because it was a bit too gory for me, SPOILER. Watch that trailer below!!

This is the start of my graphic design career for people who have ADHD and need more to draw their attention to a movie poster. I have been contracted by Marvel to use the above trailer to use my point of view to make a better movie poster than what they already have. This calls for Canva.

Step 1: Open Canva at canva.com

Step 2: Upload the photo you want to put the movie quote over. I took a screen grab from the trailer itself, with a quote (SPOILER ALERT).
Wanda is a mom… or she wants to be… but like many people she can’t have kids, lost the love of her life and is lost. And that drives some to insanity. The unthinkable and unrepairable was done, will there be an end?

Is Wanda that bad? Violence is never the solution… but what can you expect from someone grieving. Is there ever a real solution?
My favorite quote from the movie had such a cold tone in the movie that it made the hair on my arms stand up.

Step 3: Use a font that emphasizes the emotions that is intended to come from the text. Play around! There can be some from templates that apply (I found mine on the first try), or you may need to scroll past Comic Sans to find the best one. Fonts (typefaces) can do a lot for text. For a line from a movie as iconic as the one I am going to insert, the text needs to be one that is legible and bold, where the meaning feels emphasized.

Step 4: SAVE! As complicated this can be with stickers, different font, different size, etc. as a movie that comes from the MCU that needs a lot of context, this can still be a quote that mothers everywhere can relate to.
