LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Bad Neighbor Productions is a student film production group specializing in comedic video shorts and feature-length films. We draw a lot of inspiration from Kevin Smith and his "View Askew Productions" label, though our goal is not directly to imitate his logo or his screenwriting style. We're an indie shop at the moment, so our budget is fairly limited. In a perfect world, however, that will not always be the case. We envision having plenty of work available down the line for someone whose creative we really dig.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a logo for our production company -- the kind you'd see at the beginning and/or end of a movie or TV show. The logo should be humorous, irreverent, and tie in thematically to the content it's being shown with (i.e., comedies with lots of bad language, etc.). In other words, we're not a church or a charitable organization. Pretty far from it.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
At the moment, our target audience is primarily college and graduate students on U.S. campuses. But we plan to expand beyond that audience and into a more mainstream audience a year from now. What this means is that the design of the logo should be clever, but not too collegiate. It needs to have a lifespan beyond the college comedy circuit.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Kevin Smith's View Askew logo -- in all of its various iterations -- is certainly one logo whose style and context is similar to what we're imagining. It might also help to familiarize yourself with other television and film production company logos. We see them all the time when we see movies or shows, but we seldom remember them or pick them out. That's why it's important to try to seek some out to get a sense for the idea if you're not immediately familiar with the concept.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
The only mandatory requirement for the logo is that it will be shown along with a spoken tagline: "Get off my lawn, you damn teens!" This is meant to be spoken by a crotchety old man, yelling at some kids to get off of his property. He is the proverbial "Bad Neighbor" that our title references. We will provide the tagline, so you needn't worry about that. But obviously, the logo will have to depict some sort of grumpy old neighbor in a state of agitation or anger, or the tagline won't make much sense. Remember that this is a funny, goofy sort of logo, and is not meant to be shown in front of serious, high-art films.
