I caught this on Sky Arts and it's an amazing reference for illustrated movie poster art and well worth catching, watch the official trailer below. 24x36: A Movie About Movie Posters is a documentary that explores the world of illustrated movie poster art, the artists who create it, companies and studios that commission it, galleries that display it and collectors and fans who hang it.
Through interviews with a number of key art personalities from the '70s and '80s, as well as many modern, alternative poster artists, the film aims to answer our most burning questions: What happened to the illustrated movie poster Where did it disappear to, and why In the mid 2000s, filling the void left behind by Hollywoods abandonment of illustrated movie posters, independent artists and galleries began selling limited edition screen-printed posters.
This movement has quickly exploded into a multi-million dollar 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 this birth, death and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. This DVD features bonus material including additional interviews and the official trailer, surround sound as well as English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
