Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Artist Name

Crinoline Head

Description

This is a re-release movie from the 90's before DVD were available, so it's important to have a modern movie sleeve. We lost most of the original photos from the shoot, so I have limited images available. The viliain in the film is a tall man with a crinoline skirt on his head that carries a large butcher knive, so maybe even some photo/animated drawing creations or your own interpretation of the killer would be great. the backstory on the character is as a child, he and his mother were at a secluded lake house...she dies and he is left along with her dead, and has to end up eating her to survive. The crinoline skirt his mother was using to make a doll with was his new security blanket. he wore it on his head to hide the shame and hurt...he is now out and mad and menacing!

Who are your viewers?

Horror movie fans. Teen and young adults.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your viewers with this design?

Scary, spooky, exciting. Even though this is a slasher movie, much like Friday the 13th, I want some modern touches to the artwork, like the Twilight films, to attract a younger teen audience..while still getting across horror and screaming and scary!

This image needs to make the person want to buy or rent this movie. Since it's a re-release, no publicity or stars, the first impression is important. Something that jumps off the shelf or out of the screen at you that says, that looks like a movie I want to see!

Remember, the movie is also tongue in cheek and sort of a comedy as well...not just horror.

What colors do you want to see in your design?

reds, blacks, greys, lots of contrast...you decide.

Describe the style(s) you like (traditional, modern, etc.)

modern movie sleeve design with a 80's horror movie throwback

What content must be included in your design?

Brief updates

This is an update to the summary I want on the back of the sleeve: A group of college students head out to a secluded lake cabin for a fun weekend. They were just looking for a good time, but what they find is horror! When one of the students, Paul (Brian Kelly, Generation Ax, Freakshow) informs everyone of a grisly occurrence that took place at the cabin years before, between a young boy and his doll maker mother, the fun weekend turns into a bloody nightmare! Crinoline Head pays homage the classic slasher movie genre with a dose of comedy and absurdity.
