    Okay, so Sony Pictures is having a contest where people submit posters for Resident Evil: Apocalypse. They pick 5 finalists, and then people vote for the best one. The winner gets $2500, a bunch of tickets to the movie, some other trinkets, and their poster gets printed.

    I think it sounds like fun, so I'm going to enter. (Not that I really think I can win. I know my taste doesn't always run toward the commercial.) Anyway, I made several posters, but you can only enter 3. I've narrowed it down to 4:

    #1

    #2

    #3

    #4

    I'm interested in any opinion about which 3 I should enter. Thanks!

    Also, is anybody else entering?

    I like 1 and 3 the best since they're more surreal. Too bad they don't have a poster contest where original art is used.
    Good luck.

    Actually, 1 meant 1 and 4...not 3.

    Definitely not 4. Too many filters. I'd vote for #1, then #2.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Like Mike and Garrett, I personally prefer 1 and 4. I was originally going to enter 1, 3 and 4, but all of my friends like #2. That's when I started second guessing myself.

    So Dave, will you show us what you come up with?

    IMHO I don't think #4 is ever going to win. As mentioned Rob there are too many filters. I don't know who it is in the picture, not very marketable. #2 and #3 look like pretty standard movie posters, one pic of the star with the title of the film.

    I do quite like #1, but the top left corner looks a bit empty. If I was going to enter 3 of these I would go for #1, #4 and #2. I think #2 and #3 are very similar so the long shot of #4 might be worth it.

    I like #1 and #2. Maybe you can try to incorporate the Umbrella Corp. logo in somehow? But, I like 'em!

    I like #1 and #3. I think #2 is too "rambo-esque", and #4 is too weird.

    I did one too for the hell of it. Never done anything like this before and it shows, but it was fun! I think I'm gonna start messing with some pictures I've taken myself and make some posters and stuff, could be fun.

    Anyway here's my entry. I only made one. [​IMG]
