Criterion Box Art

Criterion Collection

Criterion Collection

For film nerds like myself, the Criterion Collection is the crème de la crème.  Every title in their incredible catalog is restored to pristine picture and sound quality and usually boasts some of the best bonus features out there.

But what is really seals the deal is Criterion’s gorgeous box art.  Every DVD in the Criterion Collection sports a completely original box art design.  They must have some of the best in-house designers working today as their DVD packaging just can’t be beat.  Needless to say, this makes it especially hard for the DVD collector to resist.

Photoshop Case Study

Instil Productions

Fabulous bunch of Case Studies showing how Philip Rostron at Instil Productions works from many different source images to create a final image for advertising campaigns. I’ve created an animation (above) from one of them that slows down at vital frames to show you where masks and lighting are created to really give the piece realism.
