#photorehabcovermakeover Week 3 Moon © Sarah Vernon

Week 3 and it’s a space movie for the Cover Makeover Challenge now administered by Julie Powell, photographer and graphic artist. Whether by coincidence or conscious choice, Julie has decided on a film directed by a man many of us will have thought about recently because of losing his father — Duncan Jones, son of the inimitable David Bowie.

The film, Moon, which was made in 2009 and has a staggering eight gold stars on IMDb (very rare, in my experience)stars Sam Rockwell as astronaut Sam Bell who ‘has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet’s power problems’. I haven’t seen the film yet but it’s on my list.

I have used a photograph of Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon (or in a film studio under the direction of Stanley Kubrick, if you subscribe to the conspiracy theory) from Wikimedia to create my cover. I used our old friend Times Regular as the font for title, star, director, and tag line, and added a bevel & emboss style as if these had been etched on the moon surface. I also blacked out the reflection on Aldrin’s helmet. We wouldn’t want to be able to see Kubrick’s reflection, now would we!

Take care and keep laughing!
