FYC Poster Tournament Semifinals

by Bubbawheat · June 14, 2012 · 2012 LAMMYs, The LAMMYs · 36 Comments

It’s getting exciting now that we’re down to the final four, they are all amazing posters. If you haven’t before, be sure to check out the blogs behind the posters. These last two rounds will last for only 24 hours, so be sure to get your votes in. Also since we’re getting to the best of the best, feel free to explain your picks, shout out what you like best about the posters you’re voting for. Of course, it’s not a requirement, just a suggestion. From this point on, any ties will be handled by a sudden death vote announced on my Twitter account @Bubbawheat. I’ll announce any ties and the next vote becomes the tie breaker

The posters are listed in 2 pairs below, your task is to pick which is the better poster for both match ups. There are links to each site, but remember the voting is for just the poster. To vote, just leave a comment below with your choices. If you wish to vote privately, you may send your picks to Bubbawheat@msn.com. Votes will not be counted unless both matches are picked, also anonymous votes will not be counted. Voting will stay open for this round until Thursday night at 11:59PM Eastern. Good luck to the last four posters, and may the best Lamb win!

    Nice to see that the two classic film posters ended up facing off. I think Where Danger Lives hit the spirit and style of the poster just a little bit better, but it’s a very close call. And both Gold Knight and Duke & the Movies have very nice and clean designs. I think I’ve got to give the edge once again to the Gold Knight for having a lot of the extra information like their Lamb # and web address right on the poster. In other words

    Where Danger Lives
    The Gold Knight

    I like the twitter sudden death tie breaker!

    First: Where Danger Lives.
    Both looks fine, but I’m just not a fan of bright yellow, sorry.

    Second: Duke and the Movies

    This is a very, very tight race. ´Basically I think Gold Knight is much better because it provides sufficient information for voters. I’m a fan of banners that provide the web adress and the LAMB number which makes it easier. Banners without that are only good to use at your own blog, otherwise they’ll require too mcuh of detective work.

    But Duke looks better. I prefer the color scheme that makes it easier for the eyes.

    In the end I asked myself: which banner would I be ok with to have as an ad on my own site and the choice fell on Duke, even though I’d ask him to add the missing information.

    Finally: this kind of tournament is fun, but it has some strange random effects depending on how the pairing is done. There are some excellent banners, which I think would have been even more deserving to be in the finals, that fell off along the road, sometimes I think due to a bit of bad luck.

    • Thanks Jessica for your comments. I think Duke also has a very nice poster. I love the inclusion of the LAMB. I’ll have to consider it next year.

      I’d be happen to redesign my FYC poster to get on your site. 😉

    The Gold Knight

    All of these posters are awesome and we’re happy to be competing with them. Both Where Danger Lives and The Hollywood Revue put good use to classic images for their posters. I give the edge to Where Danger Lives though for simplicity. However, as a voting member of the LAMB, it was frustrating having to dig around for LAMB #’s during the nominations process.

    In our race against Duke & the Movies, I love the LAMB in the corner. We will have to incorporate it in our poster next year.

    Thanks for all of your hard work @Bubbawheat! We may not be nominated for a LAMMY, but getting this far in the poster tournament sure is awesome! Thanks for voting bloggers. 🙂

    I’m gladly voting against myself here. The “Baby…whichever” line on Where Danger Lives’ banner is just fantastic.

    Thanks so much Hollywood Revue for the kind words! It took me a long time to figure out exactly what Mitch should say on my poster – I think I tried a dozen different things before I settled on that!

    I’ve actually gotten a few emails asking how I made the poster, so in a few sentences, here it is. This is cobbled together from numerous film posters in my collection with photoshop (I’m a graphic design professor). All of the type comes from various old posters, no computer typefaces at all are used. it took a long time! I think elements from a dozen or so posters are in play here.

    Oh, my votes!

    Hollywood Revue
    The Gold Knight

    The Hollywood Revue!! Great look. Classy.
    The Gold Knight. Red Carpet is perfect.

    Good luck, bloggers!
