Talked to Mitchell Banks today--he says that the star-atlas design that
Jessica and I used for the HONEYMOON publicity materials is too arty and
unclear for his purposes. This didn't surprise me, but what I somehow
failed to pick up from our meeting last week is that he expects me to produce
a usable 8.5" x 11" publicity sheet before he will give me a deal memo
to sign. This seems odd to me, as the sheet is going be designed
to his specifications, not mine. But I called Jessica, who says she'll
have time to work something up over the course of the next week.
Mitchell thinks that one of the photos from the press kit would be just
right to sell the film with; I'm going with that idea and hoping that Jessica
can make something nice-looking out of it.
