The one project that keeps giving me more and more fun stuff to do is The Bloodfest Club, and to continue that streak we just did a cool poster design. Somehow this project keeps sending me back to the world of John Carpenter again and again... which I don't mind one bit. This time, I referenced movie posters for flicks like The Thing to capture that simple, yet aged quality. Of course, once all the pieces were in place, I added some texture to give it that aged and weathered look... which I love.
I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the Bloodfest boys keep bringing me fun stuff to do. It all started out as a little website job, and since has blossomed into a myriad of things. For example, you can see (several posts down) the trailer that I provided some original score for, as well as the final mix. It's one of those things that I love about word of mouth... I had scored some projects their editor had worked on, and he threw my name out to help with the music (it also turned out that an old band of mine had played shows with the lead actor's previous band... another connection). Somehow I got the word that they weren't happy with the mix of the trailer, so I offered to give it a stab. They liked it.
Before I forget, I wanted to share an alternate idea for the poster. One that I think we all liked, but it just didn't quite fit the vibe exactly right. Check it out. I've got a weak spot for that white logo on the red (and I've never been opposed to neatly stacked and justified text)... but it doesn't scream 80's horror as effectively.
So that's pretty much it. Nothing ground-breaking, but a fun project nevertheless. I'm excited to share that the short film sounds like it's getting close to release, so keep your eyeballs peeled.
