Jameson First Shot: Film Posters

jameson-filmposter-01Boredom’ film poster by Carson Ting

Last year I flew down to LA to interview Kevin Spacey about his Jameson First Shot film project where young filmmakers get a chance to direct A-list actors in films they write and direct themselves. Last year Uma Thurman lent her talents to three films and this year’s lead actor is Adrien Brody.

Three finalists were chosen from different countries and illustrators from the same countries were picked to make posters for the films. One of the directors was selected from Canada and my good friend Carson Ting was chosen to make the poster! You can see his poster for Stephan Tempier’s ‘Boredom’ above, which tells the story of Danny, a 40-year-old who chooses to remain a child (Carson, I could make a joke here about you but I won’t).

See the other two posters below.

Best of Kickstarter: 468 New York Subway Stations and 1 Epic Poster

SUBWAY_08SUBWAY_15SUBWAY_02

Designer Hamish Smyth and the Kickstarter expert, the one they call “The Crowdsourceress”, Alex Daly, are releasing an 11 colour limited edition poster, licensed by the MTA, printed in Italy, and only available through Kickstarter! The poster features all 468 subway stations in New York City drawn in alphabetical order.

You may recall Hamish was one of the designers behind that other wildly successful Kickstarter, the one for the Graphics Standards Manual; they’re using the same Italian printers for this poster.

Alex’s company Vann Alexandra helps projects reach their funding on Kickstarter and boasts a 100% success rate so I’m sure they’ll have no trouble funding this one. *EDIT – this project has already reached it’s funding goal in one day.

Check it out on Kickstarter.
