Criterion “Films in Context” Contest


The Criterion Collection had a contest on their Facebook page a few weeks ago where fans could do their own product shots putting the movie in a setting that would be in context of the movie. They called it “Films in Context” and I ended up submitting seven photos. Some of the ones I did worked pretty well, some didn’t and some I photoshop-ed together just for hell of it. They were going to pick 10 finalists and then the Facebook page followers could vote on which one they liked the best. Apparently, they received 1,300 entries. So, ten “Honorable Mentions” were awarded as well because the quality of the submissions were so high. The top photo of this post (for the movie “Gomorrah“) was chosen as one of the honorable mentions. It was pretty cool to crack the top 20 out of 1,300 submissions. I am a little bummed that my picture for “Videodrome” didn’t get any play … because I thought it was pretty swank.
