Welcome to Design Challenge #10
The moment, many of you have been waiting for!
This is our 10th annual challenge here at the CAFE. These contests are run in an effort to challenge the design juices.
These contests are a bit different because the gauntlet thrown down is a real-world challenge, such as what a real client may request.
The winners will walk away with prizes and respect from the design community. Everyone wins, because you get to show of the best of your talents and fill your portfolio at the same time.

Make a DVD Cover with a Photoshop themed movie!. The twist? You have to use a tool from Photoshop as the title of the movie. (Think of a DVD cover that has a Photoshop Themed name. Such as "Attack of the Clone Stamps" etc...) Props for wit and cunning! Use any original artwork you desire. You may use any tools or platform you choose, but you must use Photoshop for at least 50% of the Image editing/design. Photos are acceptable, credit the photographer if your not the photographer.
