How would someone react if they found out their entire life was actually a reality TV show and everything around us was a lie? That’s what Truman Burbank struggles with in the 1998 drama The Truman Show. The movie is a great example of 1990’s filmmaking, especially in it’s set and prop design. Because of this, we thought it would be interesting to see what this film would look like if it was shot and set when television first became popular: the 1950’s. The companion book we designed gives a behind-the-scenes look at this imaginary movie, and features iconic props, a new logo, and a consistent theme, all redesigned as if it came from that era.
