I have sent out a teaser / save the date on email, I used trailers for the old movie "The Wrong Box" edited together to describe the concept of a tontine (pop culture references include the Simpsons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c48…u.be&t=159 and The Grand Budapest Hotel). Adding the following save the date text as a joke:
Our deepest sympathies,
you and your significant other are beneficiaries of a tontine to mourn the passing of a 40th birthday. The tontine will be settled at Konstnärsklubben, Smålandsgatan 7, 18 Aug 2018. A quiet dinner will be served.
For the executors of the estate,
G.K. Chesterton (Esquire)
The idea is that everyone at the party, as tontine beneficiaries, have an incentive to murder one another. We are planning on making a simple game and announcing a final winner / lone survivor at the end o the night.
I would like to create a printed invitation in a turn of the century style. May or may not include images. Inspiration include:
Thank you for helping out,
