The Deck: Be Part of An Indie Horror Deck of Cards!

Get the artwork for your indie horror movie onto a playing card in a very special deck!

Jinx Media is involved in a fledgling promotional project called The Deck. The idea runs like this: a promotional deck of playing cards is produced to promote INDEPENDENT UK HORROR MOVIES, ideally ones that are complete and available to the public. Each of the 52 cards will have face artwork promoting a different movie. Litho printed, retail quality.

For example, we’ve bagged the Queen of Clubs for our poster for our film The Devil’s Music. If you wish for your movie to feature on a card, it’ll cost either £75 (number cards) or £95 (court cards). For that cash, you’ll get your movie poster on a card and 30 packs of the final produced deck of cards (featuring, obviously, 51 other independent horrors along with yours). You can do with these decks of cards as you choose, of course, either selling the decks or giving them away as promotional items. Of course, everyone who nabs a card will ALSO have decks of these cards, promoting YOUR movie along with theirs, meaning that 1500 or so decks will be produced with your artwork on one of the playing cards.

In an age when print ads are dying, and digital ads are fleeting, this kind of placement could put your movie artwork into the hands of fans, in a context where they’ll see the image again and again.

After all, wouldn’t YOU rather play cards with cool artwork from a bunch of indie horror movies? I suspect that others would too.

We’re really excited about this project. If you’re interested in being a card in the deck, just email your enquiry through to cards@jinx.co.uk and we’ll take it from there.

Couple of disclaimers: there is no intention to produce The Deck with multiple images of the same movies. A different movie for each card. First come first served with specific card requests. We won’t take anyone’s money until all 52 cards have been allocated; if there isn’t sufficient interest, we won’t go ahead with production and you won’t have lost anything. But that would be a massive shame and make us really sad, because it’s going to be awesome.

Email through to bag your card, and spread the word to other filmmakers or producers who you think might be interested!
