I am looking for a re-creation/design of the movie poster for National Lampoon's Vacation/European Vacation movies (original movie poster designs attached). The re-creation should be instantly recognizable as a different version of the original, due to the placement of the people, the style of art, background etc.
My project will feature 4 people (1 male and 3 females) in a very similar design to the European Vacation poster:
- The male will be in the same pose as Chevy Chase with the same muscular body
- The male will be holding his arm up in the air (like the movie poster) but he will be holding a smart phone ready to take a "selfie". The other 3 female characters will be around him in "selfie" type poses.
- Background elements will be similar to the original movie poster, with USA landmarks and a vehicle (details advised when awarded)
- Photo's of four people (1 male and 3 females) will be emailed to the person awarded the project, to create their likeness on each character as has been done on the original poster with the actors
Four close friends are taking a 2 month USA road trip that is inspired by the original Vacation movie. it is a fun "once in a lifetime" adventure for all of them and this personalised poster would add a great element to the adventure!
All copyrights for design, art etc passes to the buyer on completion and final payment.
Firstly, it is fantastic that so many people are interested to take on this project. Thank you
I wanted to post a bit more detail and clarity for everyone to be able to adjust their bids should they need to, before I award the project. I am very easy going, but I will expect quality that matches the original movie posters. This means I will also be tough if the standard is not met, but delighted to pay you if it is!
I state this, only because there is quite a large range of prices and timeframes. I am price sensitive as it is a personal project for fun (not a business money generator) but I will prefer to not do this at all, as opposed to pay for something that is not good enough. So please be realistic in your bids and ability to reproduce the posters quality.
I have attached a rough concept of the elements that will form the posters background. I would imagine that these images can be used with photo manipulation as a starting point and then have cartoon illustration over them to get the look like in the original movie poster (but I will leave that to you). Note that the movie "vacation" heading is a place holder but I will have another header & text to put in its spot.
My thinking in words, to support the attached image:
- There will be a header & title/logo to add, so reserve the top for this just as the original movie poster has done
- across the top are three landmarks that reflect the journey from San Francisco, through Las Vegas and finishing in New York
- In the middle is an image of the Hollywood walk of fame. I can see the image of the four people standing on this like we are taking a selfie there.
- On the left is a classic american roadside motel sign, but the motel content is replaced with the Air BnB logo (as we will be using Air BnB for accommodation)
- on the right is a Nevada desert road, with a Tesla on it (we are driving a Tesla for the trip)
- In between all of these elements and images would need to be transitioned in a way similar to how the poster has done it (with desert sand, clouds etc).
When the background is all sorted, I would imagine the people characters would be positioned. I have photos of the four people to use in the same way as above, to ensure their facial likeness is accurate. For the bodies, i would imagine that your creative ability will be used for the "selfie" poses all huddled in together. I would like the body shapes to be fun, with the girls looking like supermodels & the guy all muscly (just like Chevy Chase is in the movie poster) as this would be good for a laugh, because it is so different from how we are!
I hope this detail helps you better visualise what I am wanting from the final product (and I hope it isn't creating confusion).
Please do adjust your bid over the next 24 hours should you need, to ensure both parties in the project are satisfied and it is successful!
Please also send me a message if you have any further questions.
