Dane's Hugo Cabret Poster

Dane's completed his movie poster (11x14) for his first book report. The directions say to create a movie poster with images on the poster that you would emphasize if you were the director. The directions also say to use bright colors so the poster stands out while on display.

We're 1 for 2 on that score.

Dane chose to sketch in black and white because the Hugo Cabret novel has black and white sketch illustrations; the book also focuses on the black-and-white movie career of George Melies`, who created that kind of moon up in the corner with the telescoping eye. I don't think Dane'll get docked for this.

He's still working on the report. He's got a first draft that needs revision and editing, but it should be ready by Wednesday's due date.

I've got a library hold on Hugo's book - looking forward to reading it.
Really a great poster and another winner, I'm sure.

I'm looking forward to reading your book report since I don't know anything about Hugo Cabret. Tell me about him.
