Poster design for the RINC (Red Internacional de Creadores Visuales/International Network of Visual Creators) for the exhibition "Méliès, the wizard of cinema" on his 160th anniversary of his birth.
Georges Méliès was a French illusionist and filmmaker famous for his technical and narrative developments at the dawn of cinematography, innovated in the use of special effects, accidentally discovered the stop trick in 1896, and was one of the first filmmakers to use multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, image solutions, and hand-colored frames. Thanks to his ability to manipulate and transform reality through cinematography, Méliès is rernembered as a movie wizard". Two of his most famous films, Voyage to the Moon (1902) and The lmpossible Voyage (1904), narrate strange, surreal and fantastic voyages inspired by Jules Veme and are considered among the most important and influential films of science fiction cinema.
The design wants to explore something old fashion, but also simetric and abstract and at some point, the cinematographer's vision beyond the possibilities just in a the way an illusionist wants to show us.
