Cinema459.com will be a hub for progressive filmmakers and film lovers alike. The website is designed to encourage filmmakers to showcase their work and allow both the artist and aficionado to interact with one another. With a special focus on films under five minutes, Cinema459 is designed to challenge filmmakers to create powerful stories in order to gain maximum exposure in a short period of time.
The 1st Annual Cinema459 Film Festival will accept submissions under five minutes with a theme of “spiritual but not religious” (although the theme will change each year). For the first year, we are looking for films that promote spiritual conversations without the need to point to a simplistic answer or conclusion.
The logo will be used for the new website (www.cinema459.com - under construction) which will function as a community of filmmakers and film lovers and stimulates interactivity, connection, and collaboration. Most filmmakers and film lovers will be 20-40 years old with an awareness of the current design and tech culture. They are more tech-oriented than 'artsy-fartsy.'
ICON AND WORDING:
We are looking for logo that features an iconic graphic which is incorporated into the company name, and we expect the tagline to run underneath. Notice how the example logos (attached files) each have an icon which is integrated into the name to create a coherent brand.

We're looking for a clean, techy look such as the logos that have been attached for your preview. We're not interested in a bubbly, 3D look. We're focused on a logo that is in line with current iconic trends.
The template we have chosen for the website (online community) is color neutral, and the logo will be used primarily on a white background. Therefore, we would like to go with bright colors (more toward primary) in order to communicate energy and excitement. We are not interested in a dark, movie theatre feel. We want bright energy.
We will want the native files (ai, psd) in order to use the design for web, motion graphics, and print.
We will give feedback through the process in order to give further clarity to designers as needed.
