"Paper Heart" is in select theaters August 7th.

        

Does love really exist?

        

Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says.

        

"Paper Heart" follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't fully understand. As she and her good friend (and director) Nicholas search for answers and advice about love, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children. They each offer diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers to the age-old question: does true love really exist?

        

Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the person she finds closest to her heart.

             
    
        

Inspiration

        

Is love a many splendid thing? Is it a battlefield? Can it conquer all?

        

We want to know what love means to you!
Get your creative juices flowing and design a movie poster (including the film's title and release information) and focusing on the theme "What Does Love Mean to Me?"

        

Whether it's playing an amazing video game for 10 hours straight, taking a romantic walk on the beach with that special someone, or even seeing your new baby for the first time, we want to see your definition of love!

        

(View the trailer above for inspiration!)

Update: Don't even bother looking at the semi finalists. The contest judges were biased and didn't even follow their OWN rules.

I am NEVER doing a contest again unless a REVOTE is done!! >O Quicksilver's comment on the semi finalists' page points it out straight: All the entries had PAPER HEARTS, NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DESIGNATED SUBJECT!!! READ YOUR OWN RULES!! >(

Scroll down a bit and someone posted it. Prepare to be disgusted at how biased and easily bought judges are.

Popularity and common-views. Aka the more common the idea the more likely they want to grab it and ignore the creative ideas.
