“D” is for Deep Blue Sea

It is Day 4 of the April A-to-Z blogging challenge, and for the letter D, I have chosen to LEGO-fy the Deep Blue Sea movie poster. Deep Blue Sea was released in theatres on July 28, 1999. I had just graduated from high school about a month before that, and was cruising around town in my first car, a Pontiac Sunfire. I actually saw this movie on a date. I remember feeling on top of the world that summer. High school (which I hated) was behind me, and I was moving on to bigger and better things in college. Deep Blue Sea is one of the movies that I remember the most from that summer. I thought it was pretty awesome, but I have always had a thing for sharks. They fascinate me and terrify me at the same time. Sadly, there are not many good shark movies out there.

The Minifigure photo that I took and used to create my LEGO-fied Deep Blue Sea poster.

This LEGO-fied poster was made using the generic LEGO shark figurine that comes with many water-themed sets. For the Minifigure representation of Saffron Burrows’ character, Susan, I used a fairly common brown hairpiece that has come with many Minifigures in the City and Creator themes. The face is one that I picked up in the make-a-Minifigure station at the LEGO store. Her torso is from the Jewel Thief that was part of Minifigures Series 15. She actually has no legs in this shot. I placed the torso upright in a translucent blue Rubbermaid lid, and added a thin layer of water into it. The lid was propped up by some LEGO bricks so that I could fit a small flashlight underneath. That allowed me to illuminate the whole thing from below. The shark was photographed in the same way, and the whole thing was Photoshopped together.

Do you have any fond memories of Deep Blue Sea? Or perhaps other choice films from the summer of ’99? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. This post was made as part of my LEGO-fied series for the April A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. You can learn more about the challenge by visiting the official website (click here).

Until next time,

  1. Tom,

    I can’t say for sure if I’ve seen Deep Blue Sea but it seems remotely familiar. DH & I may have streamed in recent years. *scratch head* I’ll have to look into this one for a possible future watch/re-watch. Great design rework using Legos!

    Your movie poster looks absolutely fantastic!
    Once again I don’t know the movie, but that’s OK.
