Client #2

For the second client assignment we were given a quote from the play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

"Wheels have been set in motion, and they have their own pace, to which we are...condemned. Each move is dictated by the previous one - that is the meaning of order."

What we were to illustrate was left pretty wide open. I decided to dig into the meaning of the quote so I did some research about the play. My image illustrates what it was like for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern knowing that they would be executed in the play, but had no means to stop the event from happening. 

Here is my final image:

  1. i really like this! nice and in focus, love the perspective. i also really like that you cant tell it was composited. looks great!

  2. Andrew, I love this! I like how you're commanding your viewer to really look into the photo and pay attention to the detail in the eye. Lighting looks great too!

  3. NICE! Having read the book that Chuck gave you the quote from this is a great representation of it! The sense of his impending doom it really portrayed well! Good job!

  4. Great photo that really illustrates the idea, I like that you went less literally for this client project too. Also, great compositing, looks super.

  5. Great photo and nice perspective on the whole meaning. Turned out great!

  6. You did a great job with this Andy, I enjoyed how you chose to take on a different perspective with this idea.
