Digital : One of several Bad Behaviour Character poster concepts created in Adobe Photoshop 2011 a.d
Design Notes : Featuring Roger Ward as the enigmatically evil character of Voyte Parker. A veteran Australian actor, author, and producer, Roger is probably best remembered for his role as 'Main Force Patrol Captain Fred "Fifi" McPhee' in the original MAD MAX, and for his potrayal of the sadistic 'Chief Guard Ritter' in Brian Trenchard-Smith's 80's Ozploitation classic: Turkey Shoot (aka Escape 2000, aka Blood Camp Thatcher). Roger played a major part in the recent docu-drama Not Quite Hollywood; and was delighted when writer/director Joseph Sims and Producer Steven Caldwell, having watched him in NQH, offered him the choice roll of the deliciously demented 'Voyte' .

Not quite Hollywood - An Aussie film packed full of boobs, pubes and Kung fu. "I felt the same excitement that I experienced when George Miller knocked on my door and offered me the role of Captain Fifi. Bad Behaviour definitely has the same appeal".

In pre-blockbuster/DVD days, the horror section of the local video store was a sacred and profane place— a vast undiscovered, slightly smelly, territory of gritty, illicit and at time incomprehensible images. Today, most people order their DVDs from Amazon based on movies they’ve already seen or heard of, or worse yet, they `flix everything they watch, DVD cover art is a pretty sanitized business. Actors you recognize, a scene from the film, the promo poster you’ve seen a thousand times (with a lot of dodgy photoshop edits and airbrushes screaming at you). Mid-80's VHS cover art was different, especially down there in the horror aisles. Intense Colour and XXXtreme Graphics were the only ways to give your film a chance to be seen, especially in an era when many horror films were independently produced or released direct to video. VHS covers could be downright terrifying. A trip past the horror aisle at the local video store could often be an act of bravery for my 13-year-old self, and, unfortunately, most often a much richer artistic experience than viewing the films inside those nightmarish Technicolor cases -- damn you blood sucking freaks! But I digress, one of the greats featured Roger Ward in Turkey Shoot, his hands severed, stumbling after Olivia Hussey's terrified character.

One-sheet refers to the standard north american sized 70 x 100cm (27 inch x 41 inch) movie poster, what is misleading is the one-sheet size isn’t necessarily consistent or standard, and can vary by several inches/centimeters. This is especially true of some borderless full-bleed posters, which may be 66.04 x 101.6 cm (26 x 40inch) or smaller. The sizing can also change between film studios, with each film company in-house ad production group following it’s own sizing and printing standards.
