Today’s prompt is

Design a poster of an action movie starring Julia Child

I have to admit, I was pretty stumped by this one. It took me awhile to come up with an idea. If you couldn’t tell, this is the poster for Saving Private Ryan. I remembered that Julia Child had worked with the Office of Strategic Services during WWII. I found a picture of her with some friends from the war (top picture) from http://radioboston.wbur.org/2011/04/07/julia-child
The bottom picture of her preparing the turkey is from http://blog.bluewillowbookshop.com/tag/julia-child/
For this assignment, I used PhotoShop to change the titles on the poster and added the images. It definitely made me think critically about who Julia Child was and how I would portray her in an action movie.

  1. This is fantastic, not only for the poster created, but the ideas you mixd together of a bit of historical reference. I love most “this mission is a turkey” its the small details that matter.
