24x36: A Movie About Movie Posters
An exploration of the world of movie poster art, past and present, the artists who create it and the fans who collect it.
In the mid 2000s, filling the void left behind by Hollywood’s abandonment of illustrated movie posters, independent artists and galleries began selling limited edition, screen printed posters – a movement that has quickly exploded into a booming industry with prints selling out online in seconds, inspiring Hollywood studios to take notice of illustration in movie posters once more.
24x36: A Movie About Movie Posters explores the birth, death and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. Through interviews with a number of key art personalities from the past four decades, this documentary aims to answer the question – what happened to the illustrated movie poster? Where did it disappear to, and why?
Interviewees include William Stout, Jason Edmiston, Gary Pullin, Laurent Durieux and the iconic Roger Kastel, the man responsible for the “Jaws” poster that has since become a staple of movie iconography.
