View Full Version : Movie Poster Photoshop Game (don't get too carried away!)


IG-64
01-25-2005, 06:45 AM
Ok, heres how it works. Someone requests a movie title, and others have to make 3 diffrent movie posters for it; one comic (like a Disney movie), one horror, and one drama.

If anyone remembers the JA caption thread it works kinda like that. One person requests a title, people make the posters, then the person reviews and announces the winner, then the winner requests a title, and so on.

In a way it's a game for both the title person and the photoshop person. Becase the title has to be pretty generic so it can fit all 3 genres and still be believable.

It doesn't matter if the title's been used before, as long as you made it up and it just so happened to be the name of a movie.

If the game doesn't catch on, i'll ommit a poster, like the drama one or something. That way it's less work but it's still a challenge.



I'll start, the first title is:

In a Nutshell



aaaand go.

Hmm, but we need the other posters.

in a nutshell

adv : summed up briefly; "gave the facts in a nutshell"; "just tell me the story in a nutshell"; "explained the situation in a nutshell"

I just used the phrase as a generic title.

You should have specified that it should be a made up movie title, and not an actual movie.

"It doesn't matter if the title's been used before, as long as you made it up and it just so happened to be the name of a movie."

I thought that would make it clear enough.

I think maybe it should be that you make 2 of the 3 posters, whichever 2 ones you feel like making.

Well, you could have one person give the outline of a plot and everyone has to make a poster and title from that...

hey gothix, could you give a quick rundown on how you did your poster. (which font, where you got textures, what filters used, etc..?) If it isn't giving away too many family secrets that is...:p

GothiX
01-28-2005, 09:15 AM
Find picture of walnut. Add eyes. Add glow. Go wild on the grungy and blood brushes. Repeat. Repeat. Add text in font 'Angryblue'. rasterise, then copy the layer. On the bottom text layer; motion blur 15 pixels, fade radial blur by 70%. On the top layer, set fill to 0%. Add white outer glow outer glow. That's it.

As for the current poster:

GothiX

Just google for them, or look on DeviantART for them. Additionally, you could find 'dirty' pictures, or scan in stains on a paper, and create brushes from those.
