Nostalgia Film 2
WOW, that is a beautiful cover... I must say... Stunning artwork .. I like it...
—Mel Martin, Author of The Magnificent Showman: The Epic films of Samuel Bronston
This was an enjoyable challenge for me. The author supplied a black and white photo of Mr. Bronston standing against a blackboard. I colorized him and eliminated the blackboard. I decided to feature his "Fall of the Roman Empire" film for the cover, as I had the production still from the set. To frame that image, I found an image of an ancient Roman monument online, and I used it as a model to construct a 3D model which a textured with stone and "engraved" some of Mr. Bronston's film titles on either side. I chose a classic Roman font, gave it a gold finish, and used a regal purple for the backgound.
It was a lot of work, but always worth it when it produces an emotional response with the viewer.
