TIP: Although these steps run more like a tutorial than an assignment, I am not trying to restrict your creativity. For example, I am giving some specifics such as "choose black background; add 2 people, etc."  However, if you feel comfortable enough with the software, you can alter some of these steps. You cannot ignore the instructions completely, but I've provided a checklist above that can be used to check your final design. 

The basic steps are in writing below.  The original video by GRAFX TV is only 5+ minutes long, but it covers a lot of content in a short time.  You may do well to check out the video in addition to going through my text version.

TIP: In these steps you are occasionally ask you to merge layers.  If you want to save your file at different points take a snapshot of history from time to time (bottom menu on History Panel).

How to Submit

Upload both the Photoshop (PSD) and the JPG versions to a dropbox called Movie Poster.  I want the Photoshop version so that I can see your image layers.  The Due date is March 2, 2018.
