Yes film makers, it is that time again!

It's time to start promoting your SIFF films and one great way to do that is to participate in the Film Poster Challenge to start creating buzz and anticipation for your film.


The rules are simple:


 Create a film poster! Add your poster to the poster album in the photo gallery HERE. Right click on your poster once you have it in the gallery and click "Save image location"  and repost it here in this forum using the picture location url you just got from the last step.


Tips for film posters:


Create a poster that looks like a real life film poster, use google for ideas. Be sure to use a size that is roughly 8.5" x 11" or A4 international paper size. Odd sizes are harder to work with if your poster shows up in the Simatography magazine or is chosen to be created into a CC wall hanging for your game.  Use a very high resolution so that it looks great - we recommend something like 200 - 300 pixels per inch



Tips for Promotion:


Post your poster on our Facebook page, on your own facebook page/blog/other social sites, on TS3 forums... anywhere that you think will get you some publicity and build a base of fans that want to see your film.Post it in our TS3 fourms page.  


 

All film posters created will be listed for voting by our fans too!


Deadline is MARCH 1, 2013


Notes on voting:

We will open voting as soon as possible after the deadline. The polls will close on film release day, March 15th and will be announced in the SIFF Buzz closing magazine after all films and voting have been completed.

Here is my film poster promoting my next SIFF entry. Once again, The Otherworld movie is back with the upcoming PART 3 video. The official trailer will be released later during this month. ;)

Almost three weeks. XD Seems like I'm running very fast this time, I didn't submit a poster last year, so I got excited with this haha. The trailer will be released very soon to my Youtube channel. I'm still struggling with Vegas Pro 12 because I'm having some bad rendered videos, but once I got everything fixed I will release the trailer. The poster is actually very good to be honest and I'm looking forward to see more. I was trying to capture the essence of this production. :P

Okay so first off I want to state that I know this is the wrong size, but I have absolutely zero experience with any photo editing software. I made this is Sony Vegas and then took a screenshot. When I went to resize it, it looked terrible. So I decided to go with this one. If you really need the one with the recommended dimensions let me know and I will upload that one, but I am warning you the picture is distorted and the quality is terrible. I did the best that I could given the fact that I used a video editing software for this. Again sorry if this is an issue.

Christie!  Awesome poster and I'm really intrigued by the theme of your promos.  There are monsters inside of us!!  That's just so dark and deep.
