We plan to make a difference in this world with this movie. Our goal is to HELP SHELTER ANIMALS.
Obviously, the image will be hugely important. We want this movie cover/poster to be EYE-CATCHING and DYNAMIC.
And these are the actual words we want the DVD cover to say:
Wag (big - this is the name of movie)
We want the text to be bold and easy to read.
This will be a bold production, so we want to attract all animal lovers, including the rebel personalities!! We plan to break all typical filmmaking rules with this one. ;)
TARGET AUDIENCE: This is important! We are hunting ANIMAL LOVERS (especially animal rescue people) plus FILM MAVERICKS who are excited about exploring new ground with this film.
I would love it if the film cover suggests the "crowdsourcing" element somehow... by showing a crowd? of tails?... maybe lots of tails wagging, with one standing out? Open to all interpretations!!! I want this dynamic, bold, eye-catching and easy to interpret. :) We will feature dogs in the movie, though cats and all other shelter animals will be addressed.
Maybe it would be best if there is a solid background color, so that the dimensions can be changed and the credits and some photos can easily be added when the film is complete...?
Our first use for this will be our Kickstarter campaign, which we are putting together right now. Then, we will want to use this (plus some added credits, etc) for the DVD cover and movie poster.
We need a version of this that will fit the Kickstarter video dimensions and read separately, underneath:
Help Us Help Animals!
Kickstarter video cover dimensions: at least 640×480 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio (please visit Kickstarter to see examples of video images!)
DVD cover dimensions: 184mm (7.25") by 273mm (10.75")
Thank you for helping us help animals!!!
