Official Movie Poster Released

June 24, 2014 | By | 4 Comments

Today we are happy to release the official movie poster for our short film, ‘GIFT.’  The poster features frame grabs of our young stars Royce Mann and Katherine Shepler.

GIFT Movie PosterStaying true to our collaborative model, we reached out to DesignCrowd for help with the print design. DesignCrowd is crowdsourcing site where you can post a design brief and interested designers will submit their work.  In a matter of weeks we received more than 50 unique submissions in a design contest for the movie poster and post cards, and there were several that we liked a lot. Ultimately the winning design was chosen, tweaked a little here at Filmstigator, and sent out to the printer for final production.  We should have posters ready to ship this week.

In concert with the posters, we’ll be handing out post cards at any festivals where GIFT will be screening this year.  Here’s the design we settled on for our 4×6 takeaways:

    Wow! Congratulations on this. It’s spectacular and I really love the log line too.

    • Thanks! Glad you like it. We are finishing our 4K DCP file by the end of the week. I got to see the movie play on a nice 4K Sony projector in North Carolina last week. Pretty neat. It fits on a little Linux thumb drive we will ship to theaters. We’re making a few final tech tweaks and then we’ll have our 4K exhibition version ready for any festivals who can screen at that resolution. So things are coming together! Just need some festivals to pick us up!

        Best of luck to you! I just did the 48 Hour Film Project in Asheville. Our film has first screening tonight. It was a fun and exhausting weekend!
