S O L U T I O N >>_ I picked the song “Safe and Sound” from the movie Hunger Games for this subject. My vision of the movie along with the lyrics of the song greatly influenced the bold type and the fire image that I used. The process of this design involved a combination of type and images printed on acetate sheets that were projected onto a wall by an overhead projector. I photographed them from different angles, on and off the wall, to create unique compositions.
