Insidious: The Last Key, the fourth chapter of the Insidious horror franchise, is now showing in theaters all over the country.
But before the movie’s Philippine release, an alternative poster-making contest was held by Sony Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, and Talenthouse. Participants from all over the world sent their entries, but only five winners were selected. Among them is Filipino artist Adriann Delmo.
Twenty-five year old Adriann is from General Trias, Cavite. He is currently a freelance graphic artist and an owner of a small t-shirt printing business.
He and the other five winning artists (from Peru, Ecuador, Spain, and France) received a cash prize of $2,000 (roughly P100,000) each. Their artworks will also be used for the movie’s international marketing campaigns.
Here’s his winning entry:
It took him three days to create his entry.
It wasn’t his first time to join an international contest. “Ilang beses na rin po akong sumali ng competition,” he said in an interview with FHM.com.ph. “Mostly ang mga sinalihan ko ay art/poster making contests for movies. I'm always excited when I join because I get to compete with artists from all around the world. Sobrang daming magagaling lalo na ang mga Pinoy.”
When asked what he likes about his craft, he shares: “What I like about my work is I'm able to express my feelings and knowledge about a concept through digital art.”
A self-taught artist, Adriann advices his fellow Filipino creatives to keep on practicing and join competitions here and abroad.
“Every field na napipili naman natin, nagsisimula lang tayo sa pag-aaral. Practice, always be motivated, and give your best in every step. Love what you are doing.”
After winning the Insidious contest, he’s set to join another alternative poster-making competition, this time for the movie Phantom Thread.
