Contest 11/2014: FANTASY MOVIES


  • Movie genres are a great topic, because everybody knows something about them - so let's do another one! This time you can pick any existing FANTASY MOVIE. You can make a picture about a specific scene, show one character or recreate the movie poster - it is up to you.


    Fantasy is defined as a fictional story which involves magic, supernatural forces or made up creatures (dragons, fairies,...). Wikipedia adds: "Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes." I know there are overlaps, but please try to stick to typical Fantasy movies.
    - no superhero movies
    - no sci-fi movies
    - no horror movies (but they can be dark and creepy of course)
    You can write me a message if you are not sure about your movie.


    Examples: The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Conan the Barbarian, The Princess Bride, Krull, Edward Scissorhands, Dragonheart, Hook, Willow, Legend, Pan's Labyrinth, Excalibur,...

  • Could I do something from Indiana Jones? (Such as The Ark opening, Pulling out the heart, Holy Grail, [strike]Crystal Skull[/strike] That wasn't a real Indy movie..., Etc)

  • Animated movies are okay, but since most animated movies use some fantastic elements (talking animals, a fairy tale world,...) I would prefer those with very typical fantasy stories. "The sword in the stone" would be a perfect example, or "How to train your dragon" or "Shrek".


    Indiana Jones... well... for the most part those movies are just adventure stories. There are some magical elements like the holy grail, so I guess I would allow the pictures because of this. But for me they are no typical fantasy movies. How about this: If you choose a movie with just a small amount of fantasy stuff in it, it would be best to show it in the picture to make it relevant. So for example you could show Indiana Jones with the grail.
