Terrific Alfredo Garcia, Manu.

How do you get the image to show in your post? I’m trying with Photobucket, but I’ve got nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don’t like the official cover.

Undoubtedly my favorite film of 2010. It’s my first finished cover, so be nice about the fact that the trademark C looks like crap. I hope people like this cover, and if you look at how the title is shaped, it identifies a key symbol. Enjoy!

The Dogtooth is pretty good, but why the blurry letters?

also, I gotta ask – what does a cruise ship (or whatever ship that is) have to do with the Three Colours Trilogy?

Caligula I don’t think the ship is all that enigmatic. The ferry disaster at the end of Red is the only thing that ties the main characters of the three films together (That and an old woman trying to put a bottle in a bin but that ties the films together more than it does the characters). Only seven survivors are pulled from the ferry: Julie and Olivier from Blue, Karol and Dominique from White, and Valentine and Auguste(Red), who meet for the first time, as well as an English bartender named Stephen Killian(?). The Ferry disaster in the film is a fictional account (albeit brief) of the Zeebrugge ferry disaster (actual video footage of which was used in the film) which killed193 passengers and crew. The picture I used is one of the sister ships of that ill fated ferry (MS Spirit of Free Enterprise to be precise). I’m sorry to carry on it’s just, I love the films, I own the DVDs and I feel I’ve done my homework on this one. Am I way off on this? Is the ferry that mysterious?

Haki – You’re on target. I haven’t seen those movies in 8 years, and I immediately knew what the ship was about.

@Erik Villasenor

I instantly thought of Saul Bass when I saw yours, but it seems a bit unfinished. Also, did you distort the image some? It seems a bit squished. Either way, I like where its headed.

Haki, great work as always, I love seeing yours. Manu, very nice as well. I might find the time to make a new one pretty soon.

@Caligula: The blurry letters are just an effect that I sometimes like to use on fonts, particularly the font used in the poster. I think of how many photos take out of focused images and place steady fonts on top of them, but I personally like the blurry font look. I think it looks better somewhat.

fair enough Benjamin

Haki – I completely forgot about that! It’s been a while since I’ve seen the trilogy as well (embarrassingly, though, not 8 years)

I was going to post an Apu Trilogy box,

Thanks everybody! Boxsets are deceptively tricky. It took a few drafts and a lot of tweaking.
Caligula it happens.
Cool design J. Skinner.

Thanks Colonel!

I just realized where you got your screen name. Have you made a design for Journey into Fear?

nice one J Skinner. another idea for a cover for that movie could be the zoom shot at the beginning of the movie, of the boy (who i presumed to be the brother/father in the movie) getting his head shaved.
