The birds

I chose birds because I remember how terrifying it was for me to watch that movie when I was 11 or 10 years old.  Here is my mini evolution of the poster idea. I really wanted to create something scarry and menacing because when it comes to just showing them they don't really look scary at all. I also wanted to stay away from the literal expression of the horror displayed at the time the movie came out. 

The idea was to create tension and make the viewer think: "It is not as simple as just "birds"".

I went on Google and found the most tense bird's eye expression that I could find, then worken in Photoshop and posterized it changing exposure and saturation levels. I think red adds to the drama of Hitchcocks creation by simpolizing blood.
