Project 2: Forrest Gump






Hi everyone! Here are my compositions for project 2 (: Out of the 4 quotes, I chose to use 2 which were the following:

  1. “God didn’t win the war. We did.” (The Imitation Game)

In this film, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing, a scientist who was hired by the British government during World War II to decrypt German intelligence codes. Those who are fans of the gorgeous Benedict Cumberbatch (immortalised above in all his glorious beauty) will be familiar with this film. The reason I chose it was that although I am not usually one to get emotional while watching a movie, this one was so heartbreaking that it really made me cry. Not a good movie to watch if you have makeup on.

2. “Love has no gender. Take whoever loves you.”

This quote comes from the film Blue is the Warmest Colour, better known by most as “that French lesbian movie”. While it is not really my type of film and I have watched much better, I felt that a lot of the quotes in the film struck a chord with me and were very meaningful and this is one of them.

I actually had a lot of fun sourcing for images to use for this project! One thing I enjoyed doing was mixing different styles of images to come up with the pieces, such as mixing vintage graphics with more contemporary modern ones. To my surprise, it sometimes did work out extremely well which I did not expect it to. It’s good to try new things.
