Movie poster design

Late in 2005 I was commissioned to do pitch boards for
Summertime Films’ “Her Best Move”, a family
movie about soccer. Later they asked if I would do designs
for a movie poster of the project. Turns out the film was
finished last year and was released on DVD this year.
I haven’t seen the film yet so I can’t comment on how
it all turned out.

When I heard of it’s release, I was curious to see what
they ended up using for the final design of promotional
material. Looks like they kept some elements of my
first illustration.
Here’s some of what I submitted:
