We have been contacted by Scott Free Films Limited to ask if we will help publicise a competition to design a poster for their ‘Life In A Day’ film. It looks quite exciting, have a look at the trailer of the film below, and the details and if you are the successful candidate please do let us know.
‘Life In A Day’ Poster Design Competition
We will be holding a poster design competition ahead of the film’s release in which participants will have access to our raw media assets to help design their poster. It is completely up to each participant as to how they use these assets and there is no stipulation that even requires them to use these assets at all. The best posters submitted will be whittled down to a select short-list, with the winning poster ultimately being selected by internationally-acclaimed directors Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald.
While we are yet to finalise the specifics of the competition, the prize will include things like:
– A copy of the winning poster in one-sheet format, potentially signed by producer Ridley Scott and director Kevin Macdonald
– The winning poster being prominently featured at the London red-carpet première
– Tickets for the above première in London
– The possibility of having the winning design feature as part of the marketing campaign for the film, featured on YouTube, our film website and Facebook page etc.
While we understand that this competition could not come at a worse time in terms of the academic year as well as being to a tight deadline, we really think this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to kick-start a a career in graphic design, with the name recognition of Scott Free Films alone being a great calling card that will impress any potential employer in industry. Please let us know if this competition is of interest to you and your students and we will send out an E-Mail early next week detailing how people can take part as well as where to find the media assets for the film.
As a brief overview to the film itself, last year, Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald appealed to millions of YouTube users around the world to make a short film that documented their particular day on July 24th 2010. The appeal saw a phenomenal response and resulted in over 80,000 uploads from users from 192 countries that totalled over 4,500 hours of recorded footage. The best clips were subsequently selected and edited into a 95 minute feature film titled ‘Life In A Day’ that will see a UK nationwide release on June 17th 2011.
