Alternative poster for Romper Stomper film

After watching Russell Crowe in his breakthrough role as an Aussie skinhead in the film Romper Stomper, I decided to create a poster. Like the storylines of white brotherhood and racism against African-Americans in American History X and skinheads in This Is England, Romper Stomper follows the story of attacks against Vietnamese immigrants in a rough area of Melbourne, Australia.

The phrase Romper Stomper has a few meanings; from a nickname for an Australian skinhead to a name of a style of platform boots. My idea was to write the film title on the sole of a boot, similar to a Dr.Martens sole pattern, and show it imprinted in sand, as the beach is where the last scene of the film takes place.
