Below are a selection of retro styled posters and a short animation I put together to help promote the event, which takes place on Tuesday 9th July 2013 at the Islington Assembly Hall in London. Tickets here and more info here

The Film Music of Howard Shore

The Film Music of Howard Shore is a compilation of film scores from Shore's illustrious career, including; The Silence Of The Lambs, Gangs Of New York, The Departed, The Twilight Saga, Hugo, The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit.

For the album cover, I decided to focus on his most recent work for The Hobbit, and subsequently chose to look at ways I could incorporate some of the different films he has scored into the same design style. So the mountain-scape hints at the misty mountains of Middle Earth, while the artwork inside features a Boston skyline to reflect the urban gangland of The Departed, and The Twilight Saga is typified by a dark fantasy forest environment.

I developed these images with the idea in mind of making them fit in well next to (and even overlap) one and other, despite the big difference in styles, locations and themes of the films they are meant to represent. Testament to Howard Shore's versatility as a film composer.
