24X36: A Movie About Movie PostersCanada, 2016 : Alberta Premiere
A documentary that explores the birth, death, and resurrection of illustrated movie poster art.
Through interviews with a number of key art personalities from the past four decades, 24×36 aims to answer the question – What happened to the illustrated movie poster? Where did it disappear to, and why?
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.
With the emergence of groups such as Mondo, Skuzzles and Grey Matter Art, the movement 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.
