Fake Movie Posters on Reddit

Normally, you’d need to make a film before you start to market it on a poster—but not according to Redditor Your_Post_As_A_Movie (YPAAM). For years, the user has scoured the best of Reddit and found gorgeous photos being shared on the site. He then saves them and creates entirely fake movie posters using these images as the source material. The concepts include the image itself—often cropped or manipulated slightly—as well as faux casting, credits, and a great tagline.

YPAAM challenges himself to take on a wide array of film genres. From romcoms to dystopian warfare to quirky indies, the chosen photos and texts are perfectly in sync. Often, the inspiration for the “film” comes from the caption on the original post. When Redditor krysxvi proposed to his girlfriend by breaking the rules and hanging a painting in the Met Museum, the poster response was a movie titled Best Day of My Life. The tagline, appropriately, was, “Ask for forgiveness rather than permission.”

YPAAM is careful not to divulge too much about himself. Like a great film trailer, the secrecy behind the Redditor keeps people wanting to see more. “Despite a prolific and continuing adventure,” he shares on the YPAAM website, “remaining in the shadows remained important, never divulging his true identity. Although not averse to being enlisted by those with the right finances, the aim of focusing on the work and not the man is a moral compass. A silent, but an ever-present overseer.”

Take a look at YPAAM’s profile to see all of his handiwork—over 800 posters!. As you scroll, you’ll notice that he creates movie titles in alphabetical order.

Redditor Your_Post_As_A_Movie scours Reddit to find photo posts and turn them into fake movie posters (that we wish were real).
