Brief : Read script, on-set observations.
Medium :
Digital : One of several Original poster designs created in Adobe Photoshop 2010 a.d for the Queensland Horror film Bad Behaviour.
Design Notes : Actors featured in this poster are Lindsay Farris as Peterson and Jean-Marc Manning as what appears to be the shattered corpse of Pierre. Back in the day, the horror shelves at the local video store was a special place—a vast undiscovered country of illicit sights. Today, as 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. Mid-80's VHS cover art was different, especially in the horror aisle. Intense color and extreme 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 down the horror aisle at the 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. Now, don't get me wrong, I have really fond memories of watching movies on VHS in the 80's, but, it's important to separate one's fondness for the movies themselves from any misplaced nostalga of that shitty old format. The fact is, VHS licked balls: low resolution, panned & scanned, images that deteriorated with each subsequent view. You could pretty much be guaranteed that when you hired an old horror movie from the cheap section of the video library it would have some sort of picture quality problem. (BTW - Did the "tracking" button on VHS recorders ever really do anything?) and then it was head cleaning time if you hoped to watch the next Vid without an intermittent snowstorm.

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.
