Carnival Studio Three Summers Key Art
Main Theatrical Key Art Poster

Working in collaboration with Transmission Films, Carnival created original illustrated key art for the Ben Elton film Three Summers. Working with existing set photography and stills from the film, the challenge was to develop a composition that featured the significant ensemble cast, as well as highlighting the two leads. In order to communicate a folk festival style of imagery (and to overcome the issue of having limited photographic assets), an illustrated style was developed and painstakingly undertaken in house. The digitally illustrated artwork was then adapted for use across a range of promotional materials, such as beer labelling and stubbie holders.

“I just love the fact that our poster is almost like a picture from a storybook, because the film is a storybook,” Elton said. “Whoever came up with it, I’m going to buy them a beer when I meet them!
“It’s a very warm way of depicting some much-loved actors in a very warm and inclusive film. It’s reflective of the feel of the piece.” –
