Thursday poster launch

I’m busy putting the finishing touches on my next movie poster, which I’m going to post to the blog on Thursday. Like, tomorrow. This is a real exciting, and I’m still dazed that Ollie over at Mystery Box worked his magic. One of my favorite movies of all time. Shaking just thinking about it.

I’ll be writing some of the details, stories and motivations behind this one tomorrow. I’ve learned a lot about the alternative poster community over the past week and this poster will bring about a very different method of doing things around Signalnoise. The release will be handled differently, and I’ll outline some of those details tomorrow. This is the design launch, onsale info will be posted once we move more deeply into production.

So, 9am EST tomorrow morning we go live. Until then, I’ll continue to sweat bullets over here.

    very much looking forward to this, eager to see what movie it is! no doubt you’ll be taking more of my money ;)

    Handled differently? The way you handled it was the way Mondo, etc handles it…except without the site crashing and some posters going up for sale early. Fixing those issues would make it just like every other fan-poster site.

    Mike, not exactly. There were a bunch of issues that cropped up after the drop happened, much of which I had to deal with behind the scenes. I’ll get into more of the story tomorrow, but I had to change several things to make it work more smoothly.

    Oh I forgot about that. I heard what happened in regards to the 24×36.

    As long as it makes things smoother for everybody (especially you), it’s a good thing.

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with James. Your work is spectacular and to see something screen printed will just be icing on the cake. I’m a regular over on EB, so I’ve followed the conversations that have been had, and it’s really great seeing you take their suggestions to heart.

    Mike, that’s the goal man. Also to make the product itself better for the owner.

    Jake, right on, thanks for the comment. EB has proven to be a valuable resource and I’ve learned so much about a community I had no idea existed until about a week ago. It was a very turbulent first drop, but all of those issues will be remedied for the next. Can’t wait.

  7. Having seen the poster, I like how you pull colors from it to use in your teaser graphic here.
