A while back I was asked by the guys in Hollywood Babylon (Dublin) to come up with a screenprint design for the screening they are doing of Wake In Fright, an Australian cult movie. I hadn’t heard of the film before so first thing was getting to watch it. It is an amazing film.
There were loads of memorable scenes and visual queues you could latch to. Most existing posters focus on the scorching sunlight of the desert. For me, it was far more striking this scene where he finally “turns into the darkside”.
Anyway, once the image was clear in my head, I did a couple of sketches to nail the composition and then I set off creating the two plates, as individual black and white files, that make up this digicut.
