I was so excited to get a call in April from "The Godfather!" It is a call I had been hoping for, yet hadn't expected. I was on pain meds at the time after just having my surgery, so I had to ask my wife to reread the message! (j/k) When she said "you're in!," I wanted to know what we were doing!
And wouldn't you know IT IS A STAR TREK MOVIE AND ANIVERSARY! Truely a huge honor to join the PosterPosse on this one!
To start I had to watch 3 seasons of the original show. I had no idea what I was missing. I wanted to honor the Captain and by far the Trouble with Tribbles episode was my favorite.
I also wanted to have it as a retro "Glamour Shot" like we saw from the late 80s, to honor Spock, and play the the tag "Fear of Death is Illogical."
With my Star Trek Beyond Poster I really wanted death as the theme. I started with the quote “Fear of Death is Illogical,” something Spock said in the second trailer. I wanted to have him being pulled appart, revealing his skull and bones, by the tractor beams. Then I began to add the religion aspect to it, the light figure on the right shoulder, the Enterprise making the halo, and the devil on his left shoulder.
