We are looking for a movie poster to accompany the marketing stage of post production for our latest short film titled 'A Girl and Her Gun'.
The film itself is a council-estate drama with a stylized spaghetti western twist and we would like our poster to encapsulate this somehow whilst remaining simple.
We do not have anything specific in mind in regards to the design but we are looking for something that is simple, proffessional looking whilst still giving a strong 'stylized' nod to the spaghetti western genre.
The 'gun' in question is a Colt Peacemaker should that be an image you'd like to use. Maybe Tarantino-esque blood splatters should be incorperated too?
Some buzz words that the designers could think about whilst coming up with concepts could be:
-- TARANTINO/RODRIGUEZ/SPAGHETTI WESTERN/GRINDHOUSE
-- SCHOOL GIRL/SCHOOL UNIFORM/13 YEARS OLD/HEROIC
-- COLT REVOLVER
-- COUNCIL ESTATE (UK)
You can find our more about the film here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4328166/
'A twelve year old girl lives on a rough, run-down council estate with her abusive and drug reliant mother. She is neglected at home and severley bullied at school. She is a ghost, lost in her own dire life. -- When the only good person in her life (her father) dies, she feels more alone than ever. Luckily for her she still has her father's favourite, violent western movie that she watches religiously - escapism. When the girl finds an old Colt Revolver in her late father's cellar, she decides to take the gun to school and stand up to her tormenters - Just like the heroic gunslingers in her favourite movie'
The little girl in the story wears a red school blazer if that was an image you wanted to use...
I will also upload the script for potential designers to read should they need to.
The successful designer will be credited on IMDB as well as the final film.
