“Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six” A Kickstarter Campaign By Post No Joes Productions For EVERYONE Who Loves Movie Poster Art!

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 9.47.27 PMBlurppy has been waiting for the green light on this one for awhile now and we can’t WAIT to see it get funded and produced.  “Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six” is an ambitious Kickstarter campaign that was just launched by Kevin Burke and Post No Joes Productions.  Here is how Kevin describes this passion project.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 7.08.32 AM“Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six” is a film that explores the world of movie poster art, past and present; the artists who create it, companies that commission it, galleries that display it, and collectors and fans who hang it.

Beginning with the golden age of movie poster art in the 70’s and 80’s we’ll be interviewing a number of high profile art personalities from that era, including legendary film marketing director, Tony Seiniger, the man behind the inception of the original “Jaws” poster. We’ll be speaking with Andrea Alvin, a long time member of the film marketing community and wife of the late, great John Alvin, creator of such iconic works as the original one-sheets for “Blade Runner”, E.T.”, “Blazing Saddles”, “Gremlins”, and countless more. Placing a special focus on John and his career we’ll ask the question of where traditional illustrated posters disappeared to, and why.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 7.05.54 AMMoving into this decade, we’ve been interviewing and following several modern screenprint artists, in various stages of their careers, through the process of producing illustrated movie poster art and speaking with them about their influences, their challenges, dealing with studios, print houses, and galleries. We’ve conducted interviews with independent print house Skuzzles to pick their brains about why illustrated art is so important to movie fans. We’ve visited Mondo in Austin, Texas to discuss the enormous impact that they’ve had on bringing illustrated film art back into the limelight.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 7.06.42 AMWe’ll even be profiling some collectors of movie poster art and speaking with them about its importance, how to store it and how to frame it (yep. we’re going so far as to visit a frame manufacturer to get an inside look on custom framing movie art).

To top it all off, we’re putting together a one of a kind gallery show featuring a ton of original posters from some really incredible artists.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 7.07.45 AMIt’s a hugely ambitious project, but it’s a story that needs to be told. And we intend to tell the hell out of it.

As you can see the list of interviewees is impressive to say the least.  Here are a few more that will be participating, see if you recognize any of your favorites.

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 8.44.39 PM(Personally I’m debating on whether I should submit my son’s War Machine or Iron Man 2 print….decisions, decisions, decisions….)

It can be an official piece of marketing material like a one-sheet, a limited edition screenprint inspired by any film, or even a poster that you’ve created yourself. Winning submissions will be strung together and played in the film over the end credits. Simply visit www.twentyfourbythirtysix.com for more information and to upload your submission.

Like any Kickstarter campaign there are different pledge levels with different rewards.  Artist Matt Ryan Tobin, John Alvin, and  Poster Posse Member Paul Ainsworth have both created official screenprints, created exclusively for the film and only available through the Kickstarter campaign.  There are also some other goodies that you will want to get for sure.
