Realistic Poster

19 02 2013

The sample realistic poster  for Jobert and the Crop Circle Warriors was the result of many months of trial and error from many new artists and the director’s various study samples. It was very frustrating, as it was just a poster and it took many revisions and studies to have the final output. Even the final poster is not exactly the way I want it to look, but it is good enough as a sample poster. The concept is clearly shown and the rendering is also good. The most difficult part was deciding how Jobert should look like. We cannot just make the face look like a popular local actor, so we kept on changing it, but it still doesn’t look as good as it should. Anyway its just a sample poster, the face could be changed any time if we want to.

Various studies of posters

There were lots of studies and typographies, as back then we were still not sure of our final concept and typography. We hired artists who were not really seasoned but who acknowledged that they could do the job. I gave the director some guidelines what the poster should look like and the director lets the artists have a free hand in executing it. After weeks of waiting, the artists could still not show any progress with the poster, if they did, it barely showed any promise of being a good commercial art work. The director finally was the one who finalized the presentation and look of the poster. The chosen artist all now had to do was color  the poster, but several artists who agreed to do the job fell very short of our expectations and some did not even bother to reply back on what was their progress. This happened about four times and it took weeks to find another artist who was willing to do the job for the budget. Some who were capable were too busy or found the professional fee too low for them.

After months of frustration, the director was finally able to get hold of a former artist of the studio who now works as a freelance artist. It took time to contact him,  and the only time he responded was when we finally agreed to his professional fee. After a week, there was fairly good progress, but he needed to be guided as he was changing the faces without being told to do so.

The poster is just a promotional tool to expand our property to other media, more specifically in films. However, our property is still very far from realizing a live action film project as there are still many hurdles before that can be realized. But there is no harm for aiming for something bigger in the future. The aspired film needs a good script that will entail a substantial budget, so I’m open for option fees, film rights and television rights to the right producer/s who can take the property to the international market at the right time and for the right price.

After the poster, the next in line to be finalized are the first season episodes and pitch bible for the said season. The second season script, pitch bible, character look and android game will be finalized while the first season animation is being marketed.
