Heres Version 2
Refer to This Post for info/details. There will be more to come (both for CT and MST3k!)
Here it is! My first-ever home-made DVD cover — which just happens to be for the riffing project: Cinematic Titanic. Yesterday, i had watched them riff Doomsday Machine, so i decided on a cover for that, first. I know that it’s far from perfect, but i hope it’ll look good if anybody prints it out — let me know! (i dont own a printer, lol)
I used a random DVD cover template/psd that i found online — all of this was done in Photoshop CS5, btw. I cropped a scan of a vhs cover for Escape From Planet Earth (alternate title of the film), and added my own title in a sci-fi-ish font. then, i tilted it. I added the CT logo, along with the ‘Shadowramma’; put a tiny version of the logo on the spine (the way the official covers do); added the “episode” number to the spine, along with the film title. Next, i used the description from the actual dvd release, added the Titans with the Time Tube, added a DVD VIDEO logo, as well as the legal tripe. Then, i threw on the mini CT logo, and was all set. However, there were some mistakes made: i forgot screencaps originally, and had a larger CT logo up top. So, i went back and changed it — i know, the caps are not all the same size, nor evenly placed. Oh, well! I ended up with 2 versions, since i couldnt decide if i wanted the screencaps to be with or without the silhouettes. I also wish i would have put a border around the spine and the upper blue section that contains Cinematic TITANIC, but c’est la vie. I also added the mini German poster behind the riffers, because it was a cool poster. (Version 2 will be uploaded immediately following this one)
If anybody likes this, please feel free to use it. I didnt watermark it, and i dont demand credit — even if it was hard work. I only ask that you please do not take credit for its creation. Think about it, won’t you? Thank you.
One riffing project down for today — Cinematic Titanic: Doomsday Machine — and, now onto a classic MST3k episode.
i decided that i cannot miss what may very well be Cinematic Titanic’s final tour. so tonight, Im goin to the second film: The Doll Squad

Rare photo of Josh Weinstein with Tom Servo, filming one of the theater segments, during season 1 of MST3k.
Time for a slightly different direction tonight — Cinematic Titanic - East Meets Watts (their first live dvd).
Currently Watching: Cinematic Titanic — #7: Blood Of The Vampires (originally titled Whisper to the Wind)
The 8 films i was lucky enough to see the Cinematic Titans riff live. (posters not in order) Each time i went, it was a double-feature. There was 3 times at The Royal Oak Music Theatre, and once at Ann Arbor Summerfest (the Michigan Theatre, i believe). The Oozing Skull (aka Brain Of Blood), The Doomsday Machine, East Meets Watts (aka The Dynamite Brothers), The Alien Factor, War of the Insects (aka Genocide), Samson and the 7 Miracles of the World, Rattlers, and The Astral Factor.
