Overview

Update 3/10/11: I'm traveling and may not be able to return to the contest for a couple of days.

====

I'm developing a news service for operators of digital and 3D theaters in museums, science centers, zoos, aquariums, and other venues. The image you are designing will be the header for a blog site that will ask members of the community for their input in shaping the service.

The service developed with the help of this blog will be a news site/magazine with serious journalistic goals, so the appearance should be clean and professional.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

People who work in digital and 3D theaters in museums, science centers, zoos, aquariums, and other venues. They may range from technicians to CEOs, but will mostly be white collar professionals. Most will be at non-profit organizations, but some may be in commercial venues. The intended audience is worldwide.

Requirements

I need a header for an unnamed blog site with an aspect ratio (height:width) of about 1:5. Colorful, but acceptable in grayscale.

It should symbolize the transition from projecting movies on conventional film to projecting them digitally. The viewer should see the past and present of cinema technology changing into a brighter, more promising, more expansive future.

My first concept was a film frame with sprocket holes on the left and a gradual pixellization toward the right side of the image, where it would expand out of the narrower frame of the past.

Feel free to use this as a starting point, including using the Grand Tetons and film sprocket images I have attached. I own the rights to them.

But the Grand Tetons picture doesn't strongly suggest the cinema industry. So I am open to other designs. Any images you provide must be rights cleared.

If you use the sprocket holes as a starting point, I would prefer them not be be overly stylized, but as technically accurate in terms of shape, size, and placement as possible, like the example I have provided. There should be five on the side of the image.

Concepts:

Past: rolls & reels of film, film projectors, fuzzier, scratches, old tech, pre-recorded only.

Future: digital files on hard disk, bit & bytes, digital projectors, brighter, sharper, clearer, high-tech, live & real-time shows.

Thanks.
