Giulio Mosca, a 21 year old design student from Italy brings a tribute to Woody Allen by coming up with a creative series of movie posters for the actor and director’s older masterpieces. By picking a significant moment from classics like Annie Hall, Manhattan or Take the money and run, the designer establishes an emotional connection with the fans of Woody Allen movies, by remembering the beauty of these movies. And for those disappointed fans disputing his films turning too commercial in the recent years, this might be a good reminder of why you started to love his movies in the first place, even though you might not be so excited about “To Rome with Love”.
Mole Empire got in touch with Giulio to tell us more about the idea behind the series. Besides expressing his admiration for Woody Allen, Giulio also wants to shed the light on movie posters as a form of art. Here’s how this aspiring artist describes his work:
Woody Allen is one of my favorite director, actor, and writer. Actually he is one of my favorite persons! I love his film and I love the idea of an artistic-poster related with another form of art. I think that posters could be considered as paintings “in series”. With this project I wanted to take the idea of movie posters to the next level, making a series of movie posters for people that love that movie!
In fact you can understand this project only if you saw the movie. I tried to freeze one or more events of the film in a single artistic composition, pleasing to the eye and I hope people who love this movie will appreciate this. If this project is appreciated, I will make the “vol. 2” with more recent film of Woody Allen!
Born in Genova, Giulio started to love the world of design since he was 15. He graduated from the high school of graphic design and advertising in Genova and, accordingly he won a scholarship for the IED (European Institute of Design) of Torino, an important school of design. Giulio currently lives and studies in Turin.
