Though I'd have the TT in white and the tagline on top. You decide.

I feel like both of those covers are amazing, I liked the second one better if for no other reason than it feels different than any I've seen for the film. Great work all around!

I like it but how about 75% opacity or something in that line on the TT/actors so that the image are still visible behind the text? just a thought...

a long time ago in a galaxy far far away somebody posted Tomb Raider custom cover, but i can't seem to find it. Anybody can help me please? I thought I've downloaded it but can't find it on my HDD either.

The recent Image Ent. release of Phantom of the Opera had an uninspired cover, to say the least. The UK Park Circus cover was better, but that too showed the Phantom unmasked. Here's my spoiler-free alternative:



Anyway, my main objective was to make a cover that doesn't have the big reveal make-up plastered all over it. My non-commercial cover may not lure todays kids in off the streets, but as a pure design exercise it's very fulfilling.

Avoiding spoilers on this wasn't easy. Almost all the stills from the movie featured the Phantom unmasked, so I was left with a promotional image from a glass slide for the back. It was riddled with scratches and dust, so I spent quite a bit of time cleaning up that image. The background was transparent, leaving the shadows to interact with the actual background colour of my cover. It worked out fine, as I like deep-etched images like that. It avoids the blocky feeling of square pictures.

The front poster was an original 1925 version. No image of the Phantom on this either. I only changed the lettering of the actual title to match the one on the back and spine. Otherwise the poster is untouched. The Blu-Ray logo fits in nicely, methinks.

The two-toned nature of the front poster dictated the look of the entire cover. I always start with the front poster and let that guide the design. You'll note that all the elements on the back are organized in a sort of egglike shape, mirroring the shape and size of the poster on the front.

I just noticed there's no mention of the director's name anywhere. I'll have to remedy that, including his credit on the front somewhere. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

There's too much text on the back, but this disc had such a plethora (who can say that word with a straight face anymore?) of versions and soundtracks so there was so much info to get across. I also wanted to emulate the marketing materials of the time: "Photographed in Color". You don't see that on too many posters nowadays.

The synopsis is taken from the original 1925 theater programme. It was also wordy, but the grandiose prose just rolls off the tongue. Wonderful!

Finally, I kept the studio logos and stuff off this time, because I want this cover to work for both the US and the UK releases, which are identical in content, I believe.

There you have it. If anyone wants this all you have to do is PM me.
Now that I've made a cover for this, I should get around to actually seeing it.

This tuesday In Time is out on Blu-ray. As it turns out the "frames" I chose for the various images are very similar to the retail's yet I had no idea before seeing the studio's back cover a few days ago. I waited for the official special features before finishing the cover. Anyway I like the final result...and Amanda's legs!!!

Enjoy!

Okay, I know I talked tough about wanting the cover to be spoiler free, but then I came across Martin Ansin's beautiful poster for the movie, and decided I could live with it after all.

So I made an alternate version:

that is so cool!

Just purchased The Mel Brooks Collection this past weekend and I'm looking to split the set into individual cases. Does anyone have cover scans or custom covers, preferably with original poster artwork, of the individual releases? The titles I'm looking for are:

The Twelve Chairs
Young Frankenstein
Silent Movie
High Anxiety
History of the World - Part I
To Be or Not to Be
Spaceballs
Robin Hood: Men in Tights



Thanks in advanced!


P.S. I didn't include Blazing Saddles in the list because I already have the individual release.

Here's a version I did for The Ten Commandments, made for a three-disc, 14mm spine case.

It was a commission, but my client generously wanted to share this with anyone who wants it.

Just PM me as usual and I'll set you up.

Looks great, Nissen!

Good concept, and expertly executed, B.

But, I saw this film last night with the missus, and whatever possessed you to make a cover for it ???!!!

Edit: Just caught myself chuckling, thinking about the scene at the wedding-dress parlour where they all . Maybe the film wasn't so bad afterall.

LOL!

I made one with the 'nipple poster', ensuring there was no way the same poster could be used on the retail version I haven't posted it yet as I waited for the official specs to finish it...
