Introduction

Welcome to the Eagle Vs Shark Movie Poster Design Competition!

From the wilds of New Zealand comes Eagle Vs Shark, an Official Selection at Sundance, SXSW Film Festival and Winner for Best Screenplay at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival!

EAGLE VS. SHARK, directed by Academy Award(r)-nominee Taika Waititi (the short, Two Cars On Night), is a wry comedy that chronicles the quirky romance of two awkward misfits, Lily (Loren Horsley), a shy fast-food restaurant cashier, and her crush, Jarrod (Jemaine Clement, HBO's One Night Stand: the Fight of the Conchords), an electronic store clerk.  On the day Lily gets fired from her job at Meaty Boy, she musters up the courage to attend Jarrod's annual "come as your favorite animal" costume party.  The dressy affair sparks the beginnings of a romance as well as a small journey for the pair to Jarrod's quiet hometown, in which Jarrod plans to seek revenge on an old nemesis and where Lily unwittingly finds herself stranded amongst Jarrod's family of eccentrics.

It's the fact that someone put effort into it and you can only come up with a simple "hurr hurr this sucks" instead of giving any critique of any sort of value to it.

Well, I'm pretty sure it takes more than a couple days to choose a representative for their movie, altho yes, the suspense lol. I'm a patient person, but it would be nice to have a date of when they call out the winners. Anyhow, I had fun and can't wait to see the movie!

I already made one entry, but I can't upload because I've a very big EPS (60 MB compressed) with my 128/64Kbps connection. I don't know if is possible to compress more the EPS or upload de AI (24 MB). I'm using Adobe Illustrator CS2 here... any comments appreciated.

I used WinRAR but with the best compression of the file was about 58.8 MB, so I decided to upload the ZIP (60 MB) because is a more common file format. Thanks for the comment.

I used Illustrator and I exported the poster as a JPG file, but according to the contest rules, I also have to upload a EPS file of the poster, but the EPS file is of about 60 MB (kinda big to upload with HTTP).
I think I'll upload that one in my hosting. Thanks a lot for the comment.

Why do you all have to do it in EPS?

I did it with PNG, nothing wrong with that, is there?
Reply
:iconjavoec:
javoec Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2007
I added the EPS because it was in the rules:

Form the Eagle vs Shark Movie Poster Contest Rules

How am I supposed to submit an .eps file? What is an .eps file? Can I still change the format?
Reply
:iconjavoec:
javoec Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2007
This is a EPS file format: [link]

I think you can export a work from illustrator to an EPS, but I don't know about other programs. (I think most of the vectorial programs like Illustrator, CorelDraw, Freehand can create an EPS)

I guess is required only if you win the contest. I believe The Onion needs the file in that format in order to be printed... or you could ask the organizers of the contest if you have to add the EPS file now.

i used [link].

its free to sign up, and you get 5GB of space to use. Which should be plenty. Once you've uploaded the file, you need to make it public (in case you win, so the printers/whoever can get to it) by clicking 'Make this file public' and copying the link. Then just put that in where you need it, and presto!

It may take a while, but it will work.
