Love both Chinatown and Madadayo covers

Amazing Hotel du Nord!
Brechtian… I love the effort, and simply seeing people on here posting their work. However, just slightly altering a film’s poster kind of takes the fun out of this thread. Sure, Criterion themselves have done it before, as have other members of this board, and the poster for Bullets Over Broadway makes an excellent cover, but – since you’re obviously interested in making these covers – I’d love to see you give an original concept a go. Also, somewhere in this thread (numerous places actually, I’m just unsure where), there’s a template for the Criterion layout… that alone will bring any work you do up a level. Keep it up!
Robert Nishimura… it’s always great seeing new covers from you. And you’re always making me look into new films to watch… thanks! Keep them coming!
Thank you, Timothy. Bullets, Oleanna and Scrooged were ones I made a few years ago. Einstein is the only new one and I was unsure of putting the date and criterion bar because it’s part of a set. I’ve made some new ones in the past few days.
Proud of this one.
Love this one as well.
My previous einstein cover is part of this impossible dream dvd set.
Here’s an example of poster-to-cover. Took 5 minutes. You’re right, Timothy. It wasn’t very fun.
Excellent cover work for FPoR and River’s Edge – RN. I never knew that poster-to-covers can be quite challenging and not fun. To keep in mind the sizing, eliminating the credits and such. I been used to getting screen grabs and a little touch-ups to convey an concept.
Quite the opposite. They’re not fun because it’s too easy. This thread should be about showcasing original designs as well as exposing other member of our community to interesting films that aren’t represented here already. There are plenty of forums/tumblers out there for tongue-in-cheek covers for crappy films. This shouldn’t be on of them.
That last comment sounded harsh. I should just keep my mouth shut.
Great Immortal Story cover!
@RN: Hey, I truly understand that. It’s great to learn. I always wanted to be a graphic artist (but had to settle for Computer Programming), so original work is ideal when conveying on a film – seldom seen or would be a halmark to World Cinema. So don’t knock yourself down, you speak your mind in a constructive way. In fact, I’m really digging the artwork of Sam Smith — his re-rendering of Solaris
@RN and APP
Great cover work!
Well, since it won’t let me link the site:
There are a few designers for Criterion who have blogs.
For those who care to google them:
I’m starting to notice a stale pattern in all my covers. I need to try something different.
Hey everyone! Looooooooong time lurker, first time poster:
Classic deserving the treatment? I think so! :P
Hey Jake, I can’t seem to access your image.
Hrm … it was showing up last night just fine. I guess I’ll call mulligan and repost:
