The Rule for DVD Cover Art

If your cover art is bigger than your movie go with what everyone else tells you to.

If your film is bigger than your cover art…

Honestly? Go with whatever you want.

The whole ‘judge a DVD by the cover’ crowd are the very people who have devastated the film industry of any quality storytelling. Your DVD cover should be a tease not an explanation. If your movie can be summed up by a single picture on a cover you are in the wrong business, my friend. Film is too big for you. You should settle on simple photography. It is called moving or motion pictures for a reason.

These critics are guilty of lesser choices. Want to be average? Want to be like everyone else making trash? Do what they say.

Otherwise stand up, stand out, and stand for something new and different.

The failed artist, writer, producer, actor, and director fall into the old snare of criticizing what they don’t understand and can never produce themselves.

The uncreative have no authority over the creative.

Those who cannot dream have no right to tell the rest of us to wake up.
