Design Challenge - Buckaroo Banzai

Post  Live for Films on Mon Jun 21, 2010 6:03 pm

You are a film poster designer and have been asked to put together a poster for a new film called The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension .

The only info you have about it:

- It sounds like a pulp adventure

- Buckaroo is a Doc Savage kind of character - scientist, surgeon, rock star

- He is helped by a team called the Hong Kong Cavaliers

- He has a rocket van that can travel across dimensions

- Lord John Whorfin is his arch nemesis. A creature from another dimension that possesses a human

- No Matter Where You Go, There You Are

It can be any genre, could be set in any place, any time and is yet to be cast - you can choose the actors and director

You have until 30th June.

From badly drawn mayhem to super slick graphic design, all entries are welcome. There is no actual physical prize. It is all done for the love of film. All work is the copyright of the artist/designer, but by entering you do give permission for me to post it on the Live for Films site.

Post your posters here on this Forum topic - the best ones will get shown on the Live for Films web site

Greetings,

My Banzai-sense was tingling and I found this contest. Had to throw my hat into the ring. Hope I don't screw up too much.

With apologies to David Bowie, and the ghost of David Lean.
I don't know what the hell is up with this. I'm blaming alcohol. Again.
Those stars took ages, but I loved every minute.
