Derby #176: Famous Movie Quotes Reinterpreted
Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.
Great movies are a part of American culture. Throughout the years timeless classics like American Pie, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and Austin Powers have given pre-teens and humorless adults everywhere witty bon mots to shout at one another over and over at parties. So for this Derby show us your visual take on the famous movie quotes, like a guy's front saying "I'll be back" as he turns around. Or something. You can probably come up with something better than that. The point is you're not showing us famous movie scenes, but literally visualizing the quote text as if you didn't know the sentence was from a movie. If you need a good place to start finding quotes, look here.
No use of the actual characters from the movie. That should be obvious, we hope.
No Star Wars. Characters, that is. You can use a quote as long as you reinterpret.
Okay, you can use video games. But we reserve the right to reject anything that makes us uncomfortable in a copyright sorta way.
You must title your submission with as much of the quote as you can fit. And put the full quote in the comments of your submission.
No random rule. A totally-hurried-decision by a totally-hurried writer up against a deadline.
We'll be running these rules for awhile in the Derbies so everyone sees them but these are the new de facto print requirements from here on out:
If you're using Photoshop, make certain that your halftones are at least 30 LPI for a full-size design at 300 DPI.
If you're using Illustrator, please submit your final art with gradients. We'll create the halftones on our end.
Each dot that makes up your halftone must be one solid color.
