I need a header for an unnamed blog site with an aspect ratio (height:width) of about 1:5. Colorful, but acceptable in grayscale.
It should symbolize the transition from projecting movies on conventional film to projecting them digitally. The viewer should see the past and present of cinema technology changing into a brighter, more promising, more expansive future.
My first concept was a film frame with sprocket holes on the left and a gradual pixellization toward the right side of the image, where it would expand out of the narrower frame of the past.
Feel free to use this as a starting point, including using the Grand Tetons and film sprocket images I have attached. I own the rights to them.
But the Grand Tetons picture doesn't strongly suggest the cinema industry. So I am open to other designs. Any images you provide must be rights cleared.
If you use the sprocket holes as a starting point, I would prefer them not be be overly stylized, but as technically accurate in terms of shape, size, and placement as possible, like the example I have provided. There should be five on the side of the image.
Past: rolls & reels of film, film projectors, fuzzier, scratches, old tech, pre-recorded only.
Future: digital files on hard disk, bit & bytes, digital projectors, brighter, sharper, clearer, high-tech, live & real-time shows.
