For those of you that love the art of movie posters like I do, here's a documentary that looks like a must see film! The film is about illustrator Drew Struzan, who created some of the greatest and most iconic movie posters ever created. The posters this man created are forever burned into our memory, especially if you grew up in the 1980’s or 90’s. I own several of the movie posters that Struzan created in his career. Some of his most popular works include Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, The Goonies and Star Wars.
The documentary includes exclusive interviews with George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg and many other filmmakers, artists and critics.
The journey spans Drew's early career in commercial and album cover art through his recent retirement as one of the most recognizable and influential movie poster artists of all time. Three filmmakers have united to bring this film to life; Greg Boas of Hefty, inc., Charles Ricciardi of Torino Pictures and Erik P. Sharkey of Sharkey Productions, assembling one of the most intriguing film lineups and crafting a comprehensive presentation about the artist, the art, the stories behind Drew’s most recognizable creations, as well as a never-before-seen insider’s examination of the industry and the profession of motion picture advertising.
