I had the privilege of designing this cover for Kino Lorber. Funny... I've been an HTF member since high school and now I get to design the occasional Blu-Ray release!
There wasn't much to work with on this one though I managed to pull off a more complex solution that the producers liked but...
Full name: Scott Saslow
Question: what decisions go into extras, specifically when to carry over old extras vs. producing new ones...? (I suppose the shift from text- to video-based supplements plays a part in that.)
Also: any chance of The Parallax View getting the Criterion treatment?
Thanks for the kind words!! It's funny... I don't post here as often as I used to, but I've been a member since I was in high school. I'm 36 now... life takes you funny places! As far as Arrow, I do have one more title in the hopper.
This HTF member has had the good fortune of designing artwork for several Arrow Academy releases. I designed new artwork for this one but it couldn't be used for contractual reasons. Check it out here: https://scottsaslow.myportfolio.com/the-big-clock
Speaking of Bond art and menus, I actually temped at MGM 12 years ago, first in their legal department, and then in their records/archives department. They were still based in Century City and working with my roommate and another film geek in records/archives... well, it was pretty much like The...
-The Parallax View
-Black Sunday (Frankenheimer)
-Eyes Wide Shut
-The Lady Eve
-The Magnificent Ambersons
Of course, my biggest goal is to design a title for Criterion! I've done four boxsets for Arrow Academy... Criterion is next on the list. :)
I don't know how the process works but what gets me is how a relatively recent title like The Ghost and the Darkness starring two name actors languishes while Olive gets to release something as random as Zapped! What market research goes into that decision? Or is it simply a matter of Olive...
Unfortunately, I have to agree. They may have been receptive at one point but if the studio's reaction to Bill Hunt's recent Star Trek suggestions is any indication, then I doubt we'll be seeing any of these anytime soon. But I'd love to be wrong!
-The Parallax View
-The Patsy (and the other non-Nutty Professor Jerry Lewis titles)
Re-releases of the last batch of titles WB put out sans extras (there might be more):
-The Naked Gun 2 1/2
-Naked Gun 33 1/3
-The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance...
The saddest part is that, just above the disappointing Trek news, you'll read about Arrow Video's deluxe Blu-Ray package of Bride of Re-Animator. So a small company can give the five-star treatment to a cult film, but a major studio won't do the same for one of their cash cows. (I know it's much...
It would be cool to see Cronenberg's Crash and Dead Ringers show up in the collection again.
I guess Universal is working on them but I would have loved to see a "Marx Brothers at Paramount (1929-1933)" boxset!
And The Parallax View and Ambersons, which were already mentioned above.
I don't see Trek ever being licensed to a third party but Paramount has several titles that could benefit from a deal with TT: The President's Analyst, Black Sunday, The Parallax View, and many, many more!
