We have a POSTER!!

It’s been a long time coming, but it's finally here. Thanks to Ryan, our awesome designer, and Stephanie, who took the source pictures. And of course, Abby, who could sell ice cream to an Eskimo. Check it out:

Getting to this final design has been an interesting and illuminating process. We have been talking about the poster since last June, and the core team is very happy with our final design.

Ryan was kind enough to include an alternate design, as well:

We like this one, too, and plan on using it for postcards and sections of our website at the minimum. But in the end, we thought the “shoulder poster” had a bit more visceral punch.

Since we’ve now picked a winner, I thought it might be fun to look at some of the also-rans. None of these are “bad,” per se, they just ended up not selling our movie in what we thought was the best way possible.

An early, alternate take of Ryan's. Cool colors, but we worried about comparisons to the color palette of "Avatar."

Totally different direction. Love the upside-down head, but it ultimately felt more like an arthouse drama than a scary, ghostly thriller.

Our very first attempt at a poster, done with a still from the shoot. We've come a long way. Thanks again to Ryan, Stephanie, Abby, and Juliane for their help with the whole process!!
