Synopsis: Percy discovers that his absent father actually has a pretty good excuse when he realizes his father is Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. Percy begins his quest of self-discovery as a demi-god by helping to hunt down the thief of his Uncle Zeus's famed lightning bolt.
The screen adaptation, like most, was hoping to garner enough popularity to generate a series of films and revenues. Unfortunately the film evidently did not rake in enough to merit a sequel ... and I'm assuming there won't be a sequel since the adventures of book-Percy occupy the range of his high school years, and our film-Percy is now pushing 22 years old.
Our film Percy Capson and the Liner Thief, however, was a much bigger hit ... at least to those who knew about it.
Percy Capson was played by our very own director of sales, Bob. Who, like Percy, embarked on a quest for cap liners: F217, pressure sensitive, heat induction liners, etc. For the promotional poster for our film, we got together a couple of light sources, sequestered ourselves in a windowless room (coincidentally, the same room we used to shoot Stephen's ghost hunt photo), and started snapping. We ended up with this masterpiece:
Bob is currently holding a massive drum/barrel lid (liners don't REALLY come in that size), and then I snapped this photo of a "sealed for your protection" pressure sensitive liner.
I took the drum lid out of Bob's hand and Photoshopped the liner into it. Resulting in this:
and a skyline of New York (I think), some pretty scary clouds and a big lightning bolt arcing off of the liner of terror in Bob's hand.
I added a few splashes to blend Bob in (you didn't think we ACTUALLY had Bob stand in the ocean did you?) ...
... and then I added the final touches of film title and rating information. Resulting in a final image that does not differ too significantly from the original movie poster.
