Film Posters Re-interpreted!

I stumbled upon some gorgeous graphic work that I absolutely have to share. Cosh Gallery in London has a show on right now called “Now Showing”.

“40+ Creatives were given the task of creating their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past, whether it be a literal or abstract solution. The result is Now Showing, an Art exhibition paying homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of Prints, One Off Screen Prints and Sculptures.”

Hellovon, Non Format, Marian Bantjes, Tomer Hanuka, and Pure Evil are among the artists showing. Enjoy.

See a whole bunch more after the jump!

Flickr user Keepsmesane kindly uploaded all these images I posted here as well as actual photographs from the gallery, check them out:

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind

Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).



Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
