24×36 is a documentary by Kevin Burke that explores the birth, death and resurrection of illustrated movie poster art.
Through interviews with a number of key art personalities from the past 4 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, screenprinted posters – a movement that 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.
24X36: A Movie About Movie Posters is produced by Snowfort Pictures and Post No Joes Productions. The film will receive it’s world premiere at Fantastic Fest, which takes place at Austin, Texas’ Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar cinema from Sept. 22 to Sept. 29.
The official one-sheet poster for 24X36: A Movie About Movie Posters is a collaboration between five artists: Sara Deck, Paul Ainsworth, Joshua Budich, Gary Pullin, and the project’s art director, Matt Ryan Tobin.
