If film directors made travel posters this is what they would look like
IT takes real talent to make a critically acclaimed film because when was the last time a feature-length movie of paint drying won an Oscar?
Having an untainted creative flair, understanding your audience, and being a brilliant storyteller are just some of the attributes required to be a successful director.
These skills are also important when it comes to promoting travel destinations.
For over a century travel posters have inspired people to pack a bag and head off to explore.
Whether it be to find inner tranquility, get their adrenaline pumping, or learn a new language, traveling allows people to be a different version of themselves, in the same they can when watching a film.
This thought gave BigDomain, a UK-based vacation rental service, an idea: What would travel posters look like if world-famous movie directors created them?
Using unmistakable color palates, special effects, and bespoke typography, BigDomain has conjured up some awe-inspiring posters bound to get you booking a plane ticket.
Wes Anderson presents Jaipur, India
Wes Anderson is arguably one of the most impressive directors in modern times.
He is known for his use of color palates, symmetry, extensive use of props and charming soundtracks along with subtly emotional storylines.
One of his films, The Darjeeling Limited, was shot in Rajasthan. Jaipur is Rajasthan’s capital, known as Pink City for its regal residence.
Sofia Coppola presents Tokyo Japan
Coppola’s use of soft and natural lighting works perfectly with the aesthetics of Japan’s famous cherry blossoms.
Being surrounded by so many shades of pastel pinks transports the admirer into a dreamlike world, as do Coppola’s films.
Peter Jackson presents Wellington, New Zealand
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re bound to have heard about The Lord of The Rings trilogy.
Written by J.R.R Tolkien then adapted for the silver screen by Peter Jackson, each of the films featured Wellington’s stunning landscapes.
The film was full of adventure and so is Wellington.
Chan Wook Park presents Seoul, South Korea
Chan Wook Park is notorious for combining gore with black comedy and technicolor.
These techniques are best portrayed in his film Oldboy in which an escaped captive of 15 years hunts down his captors and makes them pay for what they’ve done.
But don’t fret, South Korea has one of the lowest crime rates compared to other developed nations and packed full of lots of things to do.
Who knows, you may end up wanting to stay for 15 years.
Steven Spielberg presents Petra, Jordan
Perhaps the world’s most recognizable adventure film title track came out of the Indian Jones pentalogy, directed by Steven Spielberg.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was the second most successful movie in the series and featured the unmistakable site of Petra in Jordan.
Although no filming was done inside the caves, Indian Jones can be seen making his way inside to find the Grail which provides eternal life.
