    Film Poster Contest for a short film "Contract"

    I have just finished editing a debut short film, it has taken a year to finish. I want to do a poster for it to promote it, however my photoshop skills are not the best. So I did what any geek would do, and that was turn to google. I am hoping that you guys can help out. The film is a action packed thriller, guns helicopters explosions. Everything in the production has been sourced from using forums and turned out better than I could of ever of hoped for. I had a go at doing something, but it isn't very good, and the people involved I really want them to be wowed by a great poster.

    So if you talented lot would be up for designing a hollywood style poster, id love to see what you can do. It doesnt have to be like the one I did (id rather that get left out al together) I can supply some high res images.

    I hope I haven't been out of line by posting this.
    many thanks
    Simon

    The word contest usually implies the winner receives something, i think this is not a contest as such, more over a request for your DVD sleeve.

    Let's see if members wish to oblige your request?

    If you could post some of the images you'd like to be used in the poster, that would be great for anyone who would be interested. Also a few more details such as the colors/mood you want and what words/fonts you'd like on the poster and what resolution you would want it in.

    The more details on what you want, the better!

    We can also help you create the poster yourself if you're up for some direction - you have a good start so far, especially with the text at the bottom.

    I laughed at the Xbox headset on the guy by the way, hehe.

    No offense mate but this doesn't look like a movie poster at all... as jessica said you need to add the color mood to the entire image not just the "tracks" play with different variations not with just 1 or 2 till you get what gives this a dramatic look if you know what I mean.. right now your man and the bg look totally different.. and try the the text "Contract" with different variations as well mmm maybe with just an outline and no fill at all... whatever suits the theme..

    hmmm, I'll try my best but as I stated in the offtopic forum I'm pretty much busy with work and Games but since you said so, I'll try to come up with something if the OP posts original image of the man in the poster and theme about the movie
