Glad to see someone else is excited about this movie coming to HDNet next month. I too have been working on some coverart for this flick. Here is my work... Had to recreate the logo for the spine and did some other photoshop work to get it done.
I just completed my cover for "The Rainmaker", and am pleased that it is being played in the OAR. Woo Woo! This cover was a bit of a booger because again, I had to locate the fonts for the the spine. The font is very very close.
All these covers look great, but isn't it quite time consuming to do them ?
It would be nice to be able to look up every movie somewhere and just print out the correct envelope - wishful thinking I guess :-)
Some of the covers can be done in a short amount of time. It just depends on source material availability. Some can take several hours. Either way, it is fun. Like Brajesh said, it is part of the hobby!
Thanks to all for providing samples, I'm using them for wallpaper, and loving it! Actually I was wondering if you guys do this sort of thing for a living? I never thought about making covers for my (D-VHS) HD movies (GRIN), where do you get the case's with plastic outer covers, (ie; DVD keepcase's er; D-Theater)? OTOH; I guess a web search for this type of product will provide some vendors. None the less keep posting samples, it's all too neat! And finally, a very positive part to this hobby! ;-)
Take care...... watch, record, and mainly enjoy some HDTV of your choice tonight.
Here is one of my latest covers..."Boogie Nights". This was really a project of love, as I had a decent scan to work with, but the smaller text for the back of the cover needed to be redone, so, I FINALLY located the original font and decided to redo the entire back...removing some elements and adding a few others.
Soon, I hope to have some appropriate webspace to upload my work for others to enjoy and contribute as well.
