Hey folks, happy 2011. A couple news items:
I am relaunching the sticker contest. A few months back I tried to have a sticker design contest with the winning design becoming artwork that I'd use to promote the film, starting with stickers that I could pass out to promote the film and to give to the Kickstarter backers. Long story short, while a couple guys took a crack at it which I appreciate, I didn't really get anything I could use. So I'm trying it again.
So I need a swanky sticker to send out and I thought I'd open it up to the creative minds of the NG community to determine what the thing might look like. What better way than with a contest?
- Need to be original artwork that you drew (not stolen and photoshopped) and
- Must measure 3 inches by 4 inches and at least 300 dpi and
- Can be 2 colors or full (4) colors CMYK
(Note: If you do a full color design, it would be great if you also had a two color version of it. It makes it way more useful.)
- Should include the film's name "Everything, By Everyone" and url http://everything-by-everyone.com
Entries should fall into one of two categories:
1.designs that use a bunch of NG characters
2.designs that are completely original artwork that gets across the theme of lots of people all over the world using the internet to do creative work
Entries must be posted in this thread by the end of the day Monday, Jan 31st.
If your design is chosen you will win:
- a bunch of the stickers you designed!
- your name in the film's credits under "promotional artwork"
- a reference from me the next time you try to get an art related job "Yeah, I know that guy, he's awesome. Hire him (or her) right now!"
- everlasting fame!
- a cookie!
- possibly some mystery prize as well! (I like coming up with mystery prizes)
If you have any (relevant) questions, you can email me directly at nakrown at everything-by-everyone dot com.
In other news, I continue to wade through the footage and I also recently shot one of my last interviews, DJ Gregg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk. I wanted to hear his thoughts on copyright law and sampling in the internet age and how to make a living distributing your work online for free.
Here's to a productive 2011! Back to it.
