Project: Postmen

Been working on some images for some friends and their movie, “Postmen“. They’re working their way through the CineCoup challenge in order to win a $1 million prize and distribution in theatres.

What is CineCoup?
We make the movies fans want to see, by asking you which ideas you like the best. Our model brings talented filmmakers into the public eye and challenges them to build an audience before the cameras even start rolling!
What Does CineCoup Want?
We want genre projects and we know Canada’s got the good stuff so bring it on! We’re talkin’ SCI-FI, HORROR, ACTION, THRILLER, COMEDY, or documentaries that deal with similar themes (ie. King of Kong, Indie Game: The Movie, Trekkies, etc.)
Filmmaking teams start by submitting a movie trailer. Over 12 weeks they advance through CineCoup’s social web platform and in the end we option (up to) 10 projects and greenlit one for production with (up to) $1 Million in production financing and a release in Cineplex Theatres! #BeBrave

I offered to shoot some poster ideas at them, and see if I could help with their concept. Here are some of the ones I tried:
I kind of liked the last one, with the Saul Bass nod. But something was still lacking. I decided to expand on another concept, which included a gun wrapped up like a parcel. You know the kind, with the outer wrapping so tight, that it obviously looks like a gun.
