My "What If..." Criterion DVD cover...

Great work! You've inspired me to see if I can whip up my own versions- maybe I'll even print up a booklet of scholarly snippets to include! And as a big Criterion fan, I love the numbering homage on the spine! Very cool!

Pretty cool.

Do you have this in a larger version?

Hi & welcome Cassidy

Cool cover m8 - I like that you chose ObiWan for the front cover

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

TheCassidy - WELCOME HOME!!!!!!


GREAT efforts on that cover! - If you have braodband you should head over to myspleen.net and grab the covers collection I posted!! PLENTY of great fan works in it!

I also have a template for the DVD keepcase that really fits in the keepcase with out wiggle room - I can email that to you directly if you feel that it would help.

ALSO please keep us posted on your covers progress

Again WELCOME to the forum!

I LOVE what you did with the ObiWan picture!

- I think that these (once complete) will be the 4th "Criterion" styled DVD cover - I used "The Unauthorized Collection" on my covers

NOT to hijack your thread but here's a sample of my "What if" Dr. Gonzo Covers...

hmmmmmmmmmmm....

Wouldn't it be cool if GL decieded that the OT would be on Criterion discs? (like the Kurosawa Criterion DVD's)

I don't think Lucas would want to risk seeing that version outsell the current DVDs.
MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
JediRandy: They're certainly beyond any repair you're capable of making.


MeBeJedi: You aren't one of us.
Go-Mer-Tonic: I can't say I find that very disappointing.


JediRandy: I won't suck as much as a fan edit.

TheCassidy, it just occured to me. Why do you have it as " George Lucas' Star Wars"? As far as I know, this version doesn't exist to him anymore.

Impressive. Most impressive.

HOLY crap Rik- It honestly never occured to me that he ever might- but THAT, my friend, would kick the ass of all asses!!!

This is really a wonderful idea. Both covers evoke 1977, which is as it should be. Does Criterion solicit suggestions like they did back in the good old days?

Where were you in '77?
