Art Direction: Social Media Content: Star Wars: Darth Vader
‘Darth Vader – The pictures the Empire didn’t want you to see’:
I Art Directed a series of ‘Pap-style’ photos depicting Darth Vader and an unknown Storm Trooper getting drunk. The idea was created as a spoof of clickbait posts, and was inspired by a photograph I’d taken of two large-scale Star Wars toy figures that had been unwittingly posed in a ‘compromising’ position. The dark sides (no pun intended) were added to the images in post production to give the images the feel that someone was peering though a door spying on the unsuspecting couple.
The post containing the pictures was timed to coincide with the release of Star Wars – Rogue One.
