A movie that I know a lot of people around here (myself included) are dying to see released…
My Conversation cover with the date fixed…
how do i add pictures?
One more joke cover for the night. I watched this film recently, and while I enjoyed much of it, I felt it was far too melodramatic (especially the nearly film-destroying ending), and also that it hit the nail on the head one (or two, or three) too many times to be taken seriously. This cover deals with that particular aspect, and is oddly enough not as blunt as the film itself…
For Kjetil, post the direct link for the picture you want to post. If you use Photobucket or imageshack it’s easy to find. Then just put exclamation points at the beginning and end of the direct link.
THANK YOU Brandon. That cover totally sums up Doubt for me. Alternatively, Meryl Streep bludgeoning an audience member with a bat labelled “Doubt” could do the trick.
Haha Brandon that final line was extremely cringe-worthy. That being said I still enjoyed the film. I wish sometimes I could smack the screenwriter in the head and say “Take out that final line!” or “Katrina? Really?”.
Thanks to the people who said nice things about my prior efforts!
@Math Great cover! YOU FOUND THE RALPHS FONT. That is amazing. What’s it called? I want it.
Here are my 3 favorite crappy movies… criterion style:
That’s an excellent Kill Squad cover.
all 3 are dynamite
Manos + Repo Man are fantastic. This is the most entertaining thread at the auteurs at the moment.
Brandon – Generally your designs take the cake on this thread. Your cover for “Doubt” is no exception. Your cover perfectly sums that movie up. Box art as criticism – real criticism.
That’s a brilliant Repo Man cover, Math. I can’t wait to see more from you in this thread.
And I’ve never heard of Kill Squad before, Kjetil, but good or bad, your cover makes me want to watch it right now. Which is exactly what a dvd cover should do.
Brandon, I fear I’ve just about exhausted my Photoshop skills, but I have more ideas, so I’ll see if I can do enough tutorials to pull off the execution…
Along with Grave of the Fireflies, Cinema Paradiso is a film that makes me cry every time I watch it, and I’ve watched it many times. Now, I’m not talking simply shedding a few tears here and there, many films can and have done that, I’m talking forcing me to break down and weep, both during the film and continuing after the credits have rolled.
I can also say with absolutely no hesitation that the scene this cover represents is my pick for the single most beautiful sequence ever committed to film…
Also, you guys all know how I hate to praise my own work around here, but I made that goddamn title myself, it’s nearly identical to the sign seen in the film and used as the main title card… and it’s a personal miracle that I was able to pull it off so well. So excuse me while I toot my own horn.
I think out of all the covers I’ve made so far, this is my most personal, and my favorite.
Kjetil, love the simplistic covers.
….and people really need to learn to resize their images….
Good one Brandon, looks ready for the stands..
I have been away from this thread for a long time now, haven’t had enough time, coz one crappy cover atleast takes up 30 minutes and If i need to be on par atleast an hour….
may be next week I will make some art :)
This whole page rocks folks! I also really liked Samantha’s Hot Rod!
I’ve never seen the film but I would pick it up based on the cover art alone!
I was trying to make a good companion piece with Brandon’s Mulholland Drive cover.
What do you guys think?
Just to be clear, I never made a Mulholland Drive cover. I know there are a few great ones back in the history of this thread, those who made them know who they are, and I can’t take credit for any of it. I would look to see who actually made them myself, but I’m too lazy and about to go to bed.
This was another request I saw earlier in the thread. I do not remember who requested it nor could I find the original post(my apologies). I certainly hope I’m not imagining things!
Damn Daniel, that Bonnie & Clyde cover is amazing.
