This is the last of three posters adapted from a Chumash Valley High School yearbook Fernando designed - you can get a look at the complete artwork here on his site.
In his own words:
"What first struck me about Chronicle was the way it mixed something as fantastic as superpowers and combined it with something as mundane as high school in a very straightforward realistic way. I liked how it merged the extraordinary and the ordinary and I wanted to approach this project the same way."
"I decided to design a faux year book cataloging a year at Chumash Valley High School. The look of the prints are very much inspired by mid century modern designers in particular Saul Bass and the work of Mary Blair. The pages of the yearbook cover everything from Chumash Valley Football, Spirit Week."

"When watching the trailer for Chronicle it struck me straight away that a Manga inspired piece of artwork would really work for a film poster. So I took my inspiration from films such as Akira and tried to create some exciting, dynamic images in my own style, adding in a slightly retro element."
"I wanted to show the isolation that would occur to a teenager if they were bestowed with super human powers, which is why I chose to concentrate on just one figure using his powers, possibly irresponsibly."

"In short the movie is about teens who gain abilities and how they deal with their new found powers. One of these abilities is the power of telekinesis. For this concept I wanted to create a scene where a person uses their powers to save another from an oncoming vehicle. I wanted to put a spin on this idea, so I came up with the idea of doing a tilt-shift. This effect makes the scene seem like a setup with miniatures. We had actors down on the street playing their parts as I captured it from a high vantage point. The only addition done in post was the levitating truck. I think the end result is something that plays with the eye and the mind."
