hi guys. haven't been able to make anything lately cause i blew up my system. but i'm up and running again and started to throw a bunch of customs into the pot. just installed cs3 and learning photoshop all over again.
here's one i'm working on atm. keeping it simple while still trying to capture the feel for the movie. the movie was shot in both b&w, and color. the creator of the film couldn't get any majors dedicated to the project, so went ind. it was only shown in the us in @ 6 cities, then went straight to dvd as a blockbuster exclusive. it's one of my favorite movies; i must have seen it at least 50 times. also, the guy who did the movie, troy duffy, didn't make a dime on it, and is now battling to get the rights to make a sequel.
i've decided to use b&w images as they was prolly the more relevant parts of the film. i cropped them super wide, upped the contrast, and used a noise filter to make them grainy. i then used a gradient on the left and right sides of the images so they matched the front. lowered their transparency to about 60%... i think i nailed the tt's tho. the text is the dialogue used in the courtroom scene at the end of the movie. i thought i'd use that instead of a synopsis, as anyone who's already seen the movie, would appreciate it. i think i have enough room for credits, logos, and legals, dunno... may need a few changes, still a long way to go.
please keep in mind, i'm still missing a bunch of plug-ins/filters, but any comments, suggestions, or complaints would be greatly appreciated.
i had an idea for the courtroom scene dialogue... ???
and i made the front image larger. front is more balanced... now i have room for synopsis, special features, credits, logos, and legal...
