FMP - Album Covers
So for the final album covers i’ve decided to go for ‘Sutro’ typeface, I’ll admit i’m not completely happy with it but as I spent so much time on the music video, I simply didn’t leave myself enough time before the deadline. As for the images, i’m very pleased. The edit on lies worked out very nicely, and i’ve used Ansah’s face for the other as he is an up and coming artist, his manager suggested that it’s good to put a face to the name in terms of branding and artwork (in the beginning anyway).
I’m still working on the third album cover, Rumours. Unfortunately, as I said, I didn’t leave myself enough time to submit all three as part of my FMP, but I will still still be working on them for the Ansah’s release date, which is later in July, so for that, i’m in a very good position work wise. I have enough time until the commercial deadline to complete to iron out all the creases so to speak.
I feel I failed in time keeping because I was structuring my work around the commercial deadline (for Ansah) which meant that I didn’t feel as much pressure (as I should have done) with the closer deadline which was for Unit 7. In saying that i’m not the least bit displeased with the work that I am submitting, even though I feel it can be improved upon.
This project has shown me that i’m really passionate about photography, be that of still or moving image and it’s brought me closer to figuring out what career path I want to take, which as of now, is a freelance DOP (do they even exist? If they don’t, i’ll start it, if they do, that’s where i’m headed!)
