Derivative work in a portfolio / Fair use
I'm currently studying graphic design and have a question about creating derivative works.
As part of my portfolio, I would like to create film posters based on official photographs from a popular film. These stills would be cropped and edited in Photoshop.
I was wondering whether it would be OK for me to include such derivative works in a portfolio published online or whether that may be unwise.
I won't be earning any income from the actual posters as they are just examples of my work, but technically, my portfolio would be to promote my work to potential future paying clients and the stills used are copyrighted by the studio.
Essentially, what I'd like to create is derivative fan art based on copyrighted stills, in a similar process to the Obama Hope poster, but with different Photoshop effects.
Any thoughts on the legal aspects of this?
Could I just indicate "original photograph copyrighted to XYZ studio" below the poster?
... Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
