This week’s mashup assignment was to take elements from multiple movie posters and mash them up into one. Change anything – the caption, the title, the main image, etc. Also, make it seem like it could be a real movie.
Each year, there is one week that I dread more than any other – Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. My sister is a major fan of sharks. I know that I will not see my sister for a week, and she will post about it on Facebook and talk about it for well over a week. I would rather be watching a Disney movie. As you can imagine, we have a hard time deciding on a movie that both of us approve. For this assignment, I chose to merge elements of the movie posters for Jaws and Finding Dory.
My chosen story theme is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). This movie poster mashup features two distinct MBTI types, the ENTJ great white shark, and the ESFP Dory. I thought this would make for an interesting dichotomy.
The Great White Shark (ENTJ)
I created this mashup in PowerPoint. I used the Jaws poster as my background. I removed the background from the Finding Dory movie title using lunapic.com. I found an image of Dory with a transparent background, no lunapic needed. I created a box the same color as the cream background and covered the Jaws title. I added all of the elements to the original Jaws background poster and took a screen shot. A quick upload to Flickr.com and I was done.
I had a lot of fun creating this poster. I think my sister would enjoy this movie more than I would. I would root for Dory. My sister would root for Jaws.
