View Full Version : New theme: Shallow Ground

08-08-2005, 08:42 AM
Did another new theme for my horror site CMS system that is ever evolving. The time invested was bout 30minutes or so.


All related news is shown on the right and like all my other themes it is integrated into a contest. Hope everyone digs this one as much as my last theme which was Devils rejects. This is my first blue theme. The movie itself is a small indie hororr film looking for some press so this will give them lots.

Do you get paid for using the movie themes?

08-08-2005, 09:07 AM

I will probly tweak it quite a bit more over the coming days but im pleased for a 30min project. :) Thanks for the feedback Mike.

I like it a lot. This is probably my favorite of all the themes you've done.

Dude, I just love the fading to black on the right side, and the blue works surprisingly well with a horror site.

I agree that it's a very cool--and very chilling--theme. Though, I do find that the borders on the left and right repeat rather sharply.

And jynkies, does that movie look scary!

If you don't mind me asking what's the incentive to promote a certain movie through your design?

08-08-2005, 01:51 PM
yeah your right the border does need a bit more blending.... i will put in 5more mins :P And John incentive from my stand point or the films? The films is obvious for me it

a) usually interests my readers, and shows my site is always fresh
b) makes the film maker feel important and feed me exclusives over others
c) entertains me on cold and lonely nights :P

I have had offers of "how much to skin it". My answer has always been, its not for sale.

Maybe you could start selling 'skin-time' for $100 or something :)

Looks very good though - I like the way the background interacts with the layout on the right. Wish I had the creativity to do things like this :)

thanks R2.. glad you dig it... its a simple theme template ive setup in photoshop so i can update it easily whenever I want. Took allot of time to setup but now the art is easy.

d) promoting your contests.

actuallly you hit on a big one that i completely missed. Yes one of the key integrations is to plug contests. If I have a contest for the movie and am doing a skin its a great combo.
