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.

Los Angeles-based illustrator Josie Portillo was chosen to interpret the script from Travis Calvert of the US. Entitled ‘The Library Book’. Love Josie’s work.
