I was wondering if anybody already got their Zombie T-Shirt and Poster? Did Jared already send them?

Thanks a Million

What about the T-Shirt?
I thought participants of the Zombie contest would get a free T-Shirt and DVD?
It that is true, where can I "order" that?

if you sent your film for the dvd to him by the deadline then he'd send you a poster (on a disc) and your t-shirt.

Norm Sanders

Patience. They're free.

He's got a ton on his plate right now trying to get everything together to ship out, getting the festival DVD's together, planning this new festival, etc. Not to mention, I'm sure he's got a day job to help pay the bills in there somewhere (i.e. production shoots, other editing, etc.).

We (me and Jarred) sent them out yesterday to everyone, so you should be getting them in the next week. Each packet contains the free shirt and CD with the poster Photoshop file on it with fonts so you can add your names and get it printed out.

We do have quite a few XL Zombiefest shirts left over also, so if anyone wants to order extras for crew let me know, we will let you have them for $10 each until they are all gone.

Hey that's great, but I'm more impressed with "Diamond Member" and only 17 posts. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the heads up, seriously. I know myself, and everyone else are looking forward to it!

That's because she's a Diamond in Jarred's eyes :happy:
(see photo on her public profile ... same as Jarred's)

And Deb I'm gonna PM you about those shirts!

Norm Sanders

Yeah, I figured that out pretty quickly. :)

I liked that profile picture of theirs so much, that I posted it as my profile picture as well! :thumbsup: :evil:

Now if you had double dog dared me, that would be a completely different issue.

Can't wait to get the Tshirt and order the DVD once it's available. Thanks for the hard work!

Zombie Movie Makers -

hey, i just got my shirt in the mail, it's awesome! you guys rock! i'm gonna wear it like, every day.

but on the cd that came with the shirt, the only photoshop file was the logo that's on the shirt, not the poster.

i'm not complaining, you guys did enough work already, i just wondered if anybody else got this...

I can't wait. I'm gonna dork all over the place wearing that thing.

11-04-2005, 07:22 PM
hey yes.. the poster needed to have something changed so it didnt make it onto the CD in time for the shipment.. i figured you wanted the shirts quicker so i just sent em out, since you can download the poster later.

and now is later, so you can download the poster here. Use the fonts i sent on the CD to change the text.

no problem.. that gives you guys that didnt get your shirts yet some time to play with the poster :)

11-04-2005, 08:06 PM
Is there a general take onhow and where to get a poster made up? Is this a Kinko thing? What are the details we would want to give them?

Jarred Land
11-04-2005, 08:08 PM
kinkos is gonna be expensive.. otto and ritz is pretty cheap, you can make it anysize you want, just export it from photoshop the size you want.

Got my shirt in today. Luckily my cohort in the project decided that it wasn't his kind of shirt (looser), so I don't have to do joint custody. Thanks a lot, it's a cool shirt.

J.R. Hudson
11-05-2005, 02:51 PM
Got it Jarred; thanks!

I'd like to see how other people are working in their titles in and such
I'm having a blast with mine :)

How do the stragglers that missed the DVD submission order a shirt?

Is it too early to ask?

Jack Daniel Stanley
11-06-2005, 07:36 PM
I think you're supposed to PM DeBranne (see page one this thread). I want to order some extras for my crew. I PMed her Friday night but have not heard anything. Maybe email would be better for her cuz she's not on that much --- although theoritically PMs should forward to her email...

Jarred Land
11-06-2005, 07:41 PM
Sorry guys.. we be workin :). ill set up a page in the next couple pages for those orders.

aw grasshopper
11-07-2005, 05:01 PM
Forgive me one and all if this is a stupid question. I downloaded the poster file but cannot figure out how to change the names. I do not have Photoshop. Can I change the names in PaintShop Pro X. Can't seem to figure it out.

Grasshopper

Jack Daniel Stanley
11-07-2005, 06:11 PM
Are their layers in Paint shop Pro X? You have to edit the Photoshop layer with text in it. Maybe I'll just make a blank (background w/ no text) giant tiff for you and you can just write on top of it.

EDIT: I saved over mine with a bunch of customization so I'm downloading a clean one now.

Jack Daniel Stanley

OK grasshopper (and anyone else who needs it) here's a giant flattened tiff with no names on it.

Download the font from the font link that Hudson posted and then go to town.

Jack Daniel Stanley
11-08-2005, 02:19 PM
Wait, there's no poster here. The shirt is great. I'm going to have it vaccum sealed and framed.
There were last minute issues getting the poster onto the CD.
It was never going to be a real poster, only on CD so that you could modify/personlize it for your fillm.
Instead of puttin the poster on the CD however, they just uploaded it. Look back through this thread and you will find:
A) jarred's post of the poster link
B) john_hudson's post of the font link that will match the font on the poster
C) my post of a flattened version of the poster with no names on it (jarred's post had his and barry's names on it as a guide for where to put yours, but some people can't edit the poster in Phootoshop or Illustrator or or work with layers so I posted a flattened nameless version)

enjoy :thumbsup: ... it will be a while til I get mine cuz shipping is so crazy in Nola I requested that mine NOT be sent until the DVD was ready and then be sent FedEX cuz USPS is way behind down here.

aw grasshopper
11-08-2005, 05:13 PM
Jack -

Thank you. I got the file downloaded. I'll check into whether PaintShop Pro has layers - not sure.

Grasshopper

Jack Daniel Stanley
11-08-2005, 05:18 PM
No Prob.

But if you are downloading the file I put up you shouldn't need layers per sey, you should be able to just write or draw ontop of that background image.

With program that uses layers you would be able to toggle off or on any text or objects that you put on it, and then slide them around for best composition, but again you don't really need layers only difference is you will be modifying the actual image by writing on it. So save your version as "Save As" so you don't have to download the 100mb file again if you make a goof or change your mind :)

Okay NOW that avatar is just going TOO far!

Damn dude... if we do a comedy I don't think I want to go up against you... everything you do in banners and avatars is killing me softly. (with laughter)

Okay now why I REALLY stopped by is to say THANKS for the shirt! I can't wait to order a DVD... no really I can't... where's the order form?

Jack Daniel Stanley
11-08-2005, 08:37 PM
hahaha I actually got permission for that one -- turns out Jarred has a sense of humor after all (jk)

no, seriously, he thought it was funny, but he accidentally threw the DVD order forms out with the bag from his low carb Subway wrap, so you'll have to wait till he prints more ...

no for real, they are dealing with some technical issues putting 50 movies from various sources on the DVD, and as soon as they are squared away I'm SURE we'll see a nifty order banner :)

Norm Sanders

You might want to start a new thread for this... my flick didn't make the cut either. They said it was loaded with dropouts... and for whatever reason it plays fine on my own DVD player.

I wanted to be on the DVD release, but I didn't think anybody would miss it if I wasn't... and of course I'm cool with whatever happens. It is comforting to know that I'm not the only one who didn't make it.

Thanks man, your thoughts mean a lot to me. I can't wait to get my dvd to watch everyones without the compression. I am really looking forward to your behind the scenes info, I'm sure there will be some pretty sweet stuff. I was going to make a behind the scenes for mine, but I only had mpeg footage from a little digital still camera. I don't think it would have been very educational anyways.
