I’ve been wanting to get promo posters done and dusted for a while now, so that I can get postcards printed. Postcards are fantastic for low-budget movies; spend a couple hundred quid and you can get 5,000 full colour postcards with loads of info and a cool looking poster on each one. We’ve still got a few of the TrashHouse ones. They were the best investment ever. The idea is simple; every time you send correspondence to anyone regarding the movies, stick some postcards in the envelope. Every time you need to publicise a screening, send out postcards. Postcards, postcards, postcards, so that everyone knows the name, the slogan and the poster image. Postcards rock, but before I can get the postcards printed, I need to decide on a poster image.
And that’s what I’m having trouble with.
Several of the guys who used to write for http://www.jinx.co.uk with me have been helping me by coming up with designs, and I’ve been messing around with a couple of my own. I just can’t make up my mind at the moment. And until I can make up my mind, I can’t get the postcards.
I’m going to look through the options one more time.
