It’s here! The wait is finally over and we are ecstatic to share with you the Gauntlet Movie Poster. We’ve been at this project for quite some time. In all actuality, it’s been about four months since we began piecing it together.
Since our first film shoot back in 2012, we hired a photographer to take some character stills on our green screen for a backdrop in-between shooting scenes. We had a plethora of pictures taken that consisted of seven characters from the film. Alas, we didn’t get the chance to take all of them though, including our main character! Rookie mistake. However, since then we’ve been trying to figure out a fun way to create the final poster.
We drew on inspirations from other films that had a cast full of characters that were featured. These included classics like Star Wars and Indiana Jones to recent hits like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. We still drew tone and color schemes from the Tron franchise and Prometheus, two of the key films that inspired us to create Gauntlet in the first place.
Once we had our inspirations in check, we began laying out the placement of the characters we had to see what the layout would look like. Below was our first pass at the poster.
We were happy with it, but wanted to make it better. Step in Badi Marcel. We hired Badi to take what we had and see what awesome skills he could add to the project. Badi’s background in graphic design takes us to the University of Wyoming where he worked for the Athletic Department in doing their posters for the teams while attending classes. This experience landed him a job post-college with the NBA Franchise the Denver Nuggets and has been there ever since. Now you can’t blame us for reaching out to him, as his work speaks for itself.
This project took a few months to create because it wasn’t a priority compared to our VFX shots and 3D work for the film. It was more like having extra time in the day to play with. However, once we started to see the poster come into fruition, we jumped at the chance to get it completed.
Again, we couldn’t have been happier with the results. We’ve received nothing but positive comments online and have made a few sales already on our online shopping page. This now brings us to two movie posters, one being the main feature that you see and the other was a teaser featuring the Player Icon damaged, in which you can see below:
As work on the film continues to progress, we will also be creating character posters from our main group to have as well. We believe this will help in the marketing department when the film becomes complete.
If you’re interested in purchasing either one of our posters, you can visit our page on Redbubble where our artwork is for sale.
