Just a few observations that stood out to me: The font on the back isn’t quite right yet, especially in the credits area. I’ve seen many folks try to put the opening crawl on paper like this and it just looks weird not receding at an angle… perhaps if you did full justification left and right to stretch it as it appears on film it may help. Also, I would made the logos at the bottom of the back all white instead of black.

Like I said in the comment, it’s still a Work-In-Progress. I am fully aware that the logos have to be white, and that most of the things you see are not yet centered correctly. All I did last night was stopped, saved, and created jpegs for temporary reasons only. I’m working on GIMP (which not as reliant as Photoshop), and I have many layers to deal with. I am NOT finished yet. Believe me, I know what I’m doing.

If I wanted to change the angle of the crawl in GIMP, I would have to use the “Perspective” Tool, which can be difficult to use, considering the angle has to be symmetrical, and making them look exactly like the crawls in the movies would be extremely challenging. Besides, straightening out the paragraphs cause large gaps between the words. And I want to make it so that anyone looking at the back can read the text without a problem. If it’s at an angle, like the movies, the text at the top would be hard to read.
