Project 4K77 (Formally Silver Screen Edition v2.0) is now almost complete:

http://www.thestarwarstrilogy.com/starwars/page/Project-4K77

If anyone here would like to take a stab at creating some new box art for that project (and I know some of you already have) I’d love to see it. I’d really like to see something a little different - there are already tons of covers featuring recycled box art (VHS, laserdisc, etc) and all of the official posters, and most of these are fantastic. But I think this project is going to give us the best, highest ever resolution version of the original Star Wars to date, and a new and unique poster would really help it stand out from the pack. For example, take elements from A New Hope and rearrange them to look like one of the The Last Jedi posters, or create your own, brand new collages. Here are some examples I found on facebook:

or maybe use/edit some other old artwork that we haven’t seen as a cover yet:

And here’s one I’ve been working on:

I always liked this artwork, I don’t know if it’s been used for a release before.

If you want something hand-painted, I’ve been working on a poster for my Tech Recreation project but would be happy to let you use it for 4K77 as well.

Yes I like that artwork too. It was on the novel I had as a kid.

Very cool custom artwork you are creating there - I had no idea you were so talented! I wouldn’t want to Hijack it though.

The 4K77 art doesn’t have to be hand painted - Photoshop offers a bunch of filters, techniques and plugins that can take a photo and make it look like more like Drew Struzan painted it, which is really the look I’m hoping for. For example, I really like this arrangement:

all the elements are familiar, it’s just a fresh take on them. I can’t tell if that is Photoshopped or hand painted, or a bit of both.

Another place I’ve been looking for inspiration is the comic books:

Here’s a WIP cover. Any suggestions for what to change/add?

How about this?

(Nobody seems to notice that I replaced George’s name with Alan Smithee, because apparently that’s what he’d have wanted…)

Worst May the 4th EVER.

Ol’ George has the GOUT, I see.

I’m going to take a stab at creating a UHD BD Cover, disc label, and menu. Obviously there aren’t really any consumer friendly options for UHD Blu-ray authoring (probably will be years before anything open source will do menus). But I can basically get it prepped.

I haven’t really been able to be active in this community with my job this year but I’m dead set on helping get 4K77 on to UHD BD. I have constantly been playing around with jdobb’s UHD TS Muxing tool and trying to figure out what will get 4k onto a properly structured disc.

Obviously this would be easier with Scenarist (would have to win the lottery 4 times to get that one). There is also DVD Logic’s KITe UHD Authoring suite ($11,000 for HDMV UHD Authoring, $14,500 for Java based UHD Authoring). I am familiar with BluDisc Studio (from DVD Logic) so KITe shouldn’t be much different, so if people feel I’m competitent enough to do it and if people ask for it, well let me get some stuff done and added here, and then we’ll talk. I wish Adobe had kept up with Encore lol 😦

Edit 3: In the early stages of building a scene in Unreal Engine 4 for the menu background. Thinking of a theatre full of storm troopers on the death star haha.
