PhotoshopCAFE Design Challenge 12, Design a Blu-ray cover

This can include an original illustration, photograph, photomanip, collage, whatever you like, as long as Photoshop is used somewhere in the creation of the piece (and you have the rights to the artwork used).

It’s on Blu-ray! It can be a thriller, comedy, action, adventure, sci-fi, mini-series, you name it. The twist? You must use something (anything) from Photoshop in the name (A tool, a filter, menu item 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 you’re not the photographer.
