This is a trailer for a great looking documentary on the history of movie posters calledTwenty-Four By Thirty-Six. It was directed by Kevin Burke and it will take us through the history of movie posters from their earliest conception, through the golden age of Hollywood, all the way to the limited edition screen prints that are being created independently by artists from all over the world. This looks like it could be a really interesting doc.
/Film reached out to the director of the film, who offered the following statement:
"I’m really excited about where Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six is headed and how far it’s come along – we’re about 80% of the way through production and couldn’t be happier with the way the story has come together. One of the most incredible things about documentary is that no matter how much you research, once you start rolling you will always learn something new and be treated to unanticipated perspectives. It’s a really organic process that allows the film to drive itself in a way. In late October we’re doing an Eastern US road trip over a span of 10 days where we’ll be interviewing a ton of poster art world personalities – there are truly too many to name. We’re hoping to hit the UK for a similar trip in December or January and that will wrap production. I’ve already begun cutting the film into a skeleton, knowing that changes will be made as new footage is gathered, but I’m trying to stay ahead of the curve so that we’re on point to hit festivals in early 2015.August 28th to 31st we’ll be promoting the film in Toronto at our booth at Fan Expo Canada – it’s like the Canadian SDCC. Our booth will be flanked on either side by Paul Ainsworth and Matt Tobin who created the awesome prints for our Kickstarter campaign. While there I’ll also be co-moderating (with my fiancée and co-producer Andrea Butler) a panel/Q&A on horror art presented by Rue Morgue Magazine featuring Gary Pullin, Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, Jason Edmiston, and a really talented artist named Andrew Wright. Any Canadian art fans should come by and see us!"
