A Series of Unfortunate Posters

A practical response to my thesis topic, I have examined the roll of designed elements including props and sets in a film’s ability to create an immersive experience for its audience. 

I have developed 3 posters for a fictional film based on A Series of Unfortunate Events - The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket. The story takes place in the worn out, run down Caligari Carnival. I chose to screen print the posters because of the old-fashioned pre-digital style of writing, and their suitability as an easy to reproduce medium.

For my final series of 3 posters I depicted the carnival’s three main attractions – Madame Lulu the fortune-teller, The Lion Show and The Freak Show. Each poster subtly includes the image of an eye- a strong reoccurring theme in A Series of Unfortunate Events.
