[request] DVD box request
Hello, I hope this is the right place to post this, I am new to the forums, and have seen what great work members of this community have done, and I must say, I am very impressed. I am currently working on a movie using a software called The Movies and when the movie is finished, I am planning to put it on a DVD for home viewing. (showing friends, family, etc.) I'm not horrible at graphics, just box art. I've tried and tried to make a cool looking slip for my DVD, but it looks like crap. And I would like to request someone to create one, please.
I would like the following:
Back art: just something that will blend with the fron art.
Also I would like a "special features" box. Saying:
Director & Actor commentary
Then a box that says:
"Original and Hi-res versions included"
For the movie description:
"From the somewhat creative mind of frosty_frost09 comes....
"A Diagnosis of Death" A short story written by Ambrose Bierce, adapted into a script by frosty_frost09. The film was alos directed by frosty_frost09 using The Movies Software. The story tells of a man, and how he came to believe in ghost.
Turn off the lights, grab some popcorn, and relax in front of the t.v, and enjoy the first ever horror/suspense from Frosted Pictures."
and then whatever else is on the back of a DVD box.
A little background info on the movie:
I got alot of influence on the way this movie would look from 1950's, 60's and 70's horror movies. When making desiging the box, keep that in mind. It's a horror/suspense, so I would like for it to have that kind of look and feel, please
Other than what I posted above, you have total creative control. Use whatever fonts, and graphics you want. Just, if you can, keep the look and feel of the art looking like a horror/suspense box.
I hope i'm not sking too much, and that this is in the right place. Also, could you make it the actual size that DVD slips are? As I have said, I will be using this for the DVD cover when the movie is done.
One last note:
I am out of color ink, so when I print this, it will be in black and white.
EDIT: According to this a DVD slip is 5-1/4" W x 7-1/2" L x 9/16" D

I would try but I have no clue what dimensions to do.
I could do you a quick cover... however, you will need to provide a little more information, especially some images of your actual movie.... ie. best if there's some characters images...it's no point in placing images of stuff on the back taken off the web if they aren't featured in your movie ---- maybe a cast list too. Your synopsis isn't big enough either -- you'll need to expland it a little more too.
Oh... and since most DVD covers are done in hi-res (300dpi - for better print quality).. your current picture is a bit small.. so it'll probably have to be expanded and done on a Medium-res template at around 200dpi.
