IntroductionWelcome 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.
