^ Edit: I will NOT be making a slipcase. There was no slipcase when I had the Unaltered Trilogy on VHS, and the same will go to these covers.

But wasn’t the VHS packaging essentially just a slipcase?

What I actually meant was something like a box set. One CBS/FOX release had an available box set (At least I think this was CBS/FOX):

I had these a long time ago, which didn’t come in a box set:

Here’s a small tease of what I’m currently working on (it’s not ready yet):

As you can see, I’m giving my covers a throwback look. They are inspired by the old CBS/FOX VHS tapes I had during my early childhood. I don’t want them to be exact copies. I used the color scheme as a reference, and lowered the saturation of the pictures. I also made an off-white color. This makes the covers look older, as if they have aged and faded over time.

Oh neat! That does give those cases a nice visual flare to them. I like the work you’ve put out skywalkerfan101, keep up the good work! 😃

Thanks. The pictures represent an ordinary 12.5 mm Blu Ray case, but I’m changing them for Criterion cases. They would go perfectly with them.

Just my additional two cents: I LOVE the cover. I love the spine. I really enjoy the sepia tones of the whole thing. I love the choice of background images on the back. The only thing that stands out to me is the crawl font and the credits font. So, instead of trying to go yellow to match the film, why not just go radically different? I felt the white text of your first example was better to my eye. But find a nice font like Gill Sans (my personal favorite these days). Also, the credits could look like the poster credits with the right font choice. For example, this: http://i.imgur.com/nCbh3Sg.jpg

At some point it’s all just personal taste! It’s art, after all 😃.

The thing is that I can’t find other ways to get the credits. I took mine from the 1995 THX cases.

Can’t we just consider the fact that ALL art, including film, is subjective. No matter how you explain it, it’s still an opinion, and there is no wrong answer to it. If someone says that their favorite Star Wars movie is one of the prequels, who cares? More power to them. Why should there a dispute. The fact that other fans “may” be offended by something like this is a little questionable.
