Congratulations on making it to the finals!!!
We really appreciate all your efforts up to this point.
While the first batch of logo's had flap board's, director chairs and and film images, the Board of Directors of the Directors Cut felt they were too literal for the film making industry and not targeting the Technology industry; which is our target market. We feel potential members would be confused as to whom we were marketing.
That said, we'd like to change course from the original specs and move away from logo's that are playing off the name Director's Cut of film making and would like new and fresh logo's that would resonate to people immersed in the technology industry.
To give some additional color, our members are carefully curated and handpicked by us, as they highly sought after and active members of the technology companies/community. They are thought leaders and are the future executives (Founder, CxO's and VP's) of the technology industry. They went to the best schools and work for the best companies in Tech. The Directors Cut group will be an avenue for them to continue their upward mobility in the industry.
I hope this helps in spurring creative ideas. Please do not hesitate in reaching out if you have any additional questions.
