Shout Factory Impress with Their Knockout DVD Art

A week or so back I wrote an article focusing on the reintroduction of painted DVD art, a form of art that appeared first in cinema posters, but re-emerged in the VHS format and swiftly died when photo shopped DVD covers and extras pushed it (for the most part) out of the mainstream. Well there are a whole lot of companies out there not letting this tradition die. Arrow Video was the first company I was exposed to that cared about the covers of the products they were releasing, but they are by far the only people to do so. Shout Factory has also taken this on board and are realising some top quality DVD and Blu Ray releases that are proud to have artwork plastered all over them.

Here is what the company is all about (taken from their website).

Shout! Factory has been around for 10 years. 10 years! That’s quite an achievement and one we’re very proud to celebrate.

When we first founded Shout!, we were fairly fresh off our Rhino days, a company my brother Richard founded in the 1970s. We had an amazing run at Rhino: 25 years for Richard, 15 years for me and about the same for our partner, Bob Emmer.

Basically, we’re living up to our own motto of staying dedicated to what we grew up on, but never outgrew. Please let us know what you think. We want to keep doing this for as long as possible. Your feedback helps us know more about what’s working and what’s not.

This is yet another company committed to bringing back movies from the past for consumption today. Their label Scream factory is comprised of tons of 80s and 90s flicks, some only just getting a DVD or Blu Ray release. Below is a selection of some of their released covers so far. Where possible I have credited the artist who created this stunning cover art. So let us all marvel at gallery of covers below.

You can keep up to speed on all these new releases through their main webpage and also through Twitter and FaceBook. Artists Nathan T.Milliner, Justin Osbourn and Tom “The Dude” Hodge can all be found on Facebook and the internet. You would think with these two companies producing this much great content that this would be it for cover art articles. However you would be wrong because I have one more trick up my sleeve. There are a selection of fans and small companies out there doing some incredible retro based art on their DVD releases and the final article in this series will showcase some of these pioneers that I have managed to come across and the mind-blowing work they do.
