It’s back, it’s bad, and it’s in full color.
In this poster I have a movie starring Stifler from American Pie, another amazing effort from the legendary HK cinema director Tsui Hark, a movie directed by Bobcat Goldwaith (YES!) and Ti West’s latest reshaping of what we know as the American horror film. Enjoy and spread the word. Starting June 22 every Friday evening 9:30pm at Red River Theatres of Concord,NH.
Following in the footsteps of 2010′s successful and critically applauded An Evening of Steampunk Theatre, Producer John Herman and Co are back with new theater anthology this March. An Evening of Apocalyptic Theatre features a whole new lineup of plays that will take you to the brink of human existence. There will be artwork inspired by the plays and even a whole soundtrack of music. So in short, another amazing collection of NH talent all coming together to benift charity.
Here’s my bit, the above poster. Coming this March at the Players’ Ring in Portsmouth,NH. Be there!
This one’s for you Henry Bemis…
From it’s humble start this August of 2011, Red River Theatres Xtreme Friday Night Film Series has officially carried over into it’s fourth month.Facilites Manager Barry Steelman took a risk with this kind of programming but his film choices have been on point, showcasing some the best independent genre films in the world. All in your backyard NH, where no other theater would touch these titles outside of Boston. It’s been a pleasure to create these posters and I hope you will join me on the 25th for Rare Exports, only in Concord at NH’s premiere indy theater.
This thing just won’t quit! What started as a one time voyage into b-movie waters has now extended into October with the latest four films in the Xtreme Friday Night Film Series. Red River Theatres Facilities Manager Barry Steelman has done a superb job again with his selections here. I’ve seen John Woo’s Red Cliff and the excellent Korean “monster movie” The Host, but I’m very intriqued about the buzz behind Bellflower and Point Blank. a super tight French genre thriller. I think this poster might be my favorite of the three I’ve designed. Bellflower is running TONIGHT, but you can catch the rest at NH’s finest indie non-profit theater every friday this month for a paltry 7 bucks and they serve beer and wine. It’s a no brainer.
Well it’s official. Red River Theatre‘s Xtreme Friday Night Film series has been a great success. Facilities manager Barry Steelman announced before the screening of 13 Assassins that the series will run throughout the month of September. I’d like to think my poster played some small part in that but hey, with a linup of Hobo With a Shotgun,Rubber,13 Assassins and Stakeland how could it NOT be a success? Another great thing about this is I get to do another poster for the next 5 titles.! (fist pump) Here’s what’s in store for the next month:
The Troll Hunter:
Dario Argento’s Susperia is one of my favorite films of all time, a masterpiece of the horror genre as well as the brilliant Dead Alive, an early Peter Jackson favorite.Throw in the dark comedy of Four Lions and the thrilling monster movie aspect of Troll Hunter and you have an excellent lineup of friday night films. Join me tomorrow for the screening of Stakeland at Red River Theatres and keep an eye out for the new poster for the XFNFS part deux!
Here it is in all it’s glory. The poster for Red River Theatres Friday Night Film Series. When you given the task of drawing something you really love and have a real connection with there’s a certain amount of pressure. I love the B-movies, and these are no ordinary b-movies. These are products of serious craftsmen/women. I deeply admire Takashi Miike and Rutger Hauer. If anything I hope this inspires you to travel to Red River Theatres and check out this awesome lineup of movies. This was a total blast, but I need a drink now. Cheers!
Designer/Illustrator/host of the Grounded Astronaut Stephen Bobbett just revealed his excellent illustrations for the upcoming An Evening of Steampunk and Robot Theatre at the Player’s Ring in Portsmouth NH starting this friday. (Go here to see all Stephen’s work) So I said what the hey, the more the merrier! This awesome collaborative enterprise is being produced by the uber hyphened (and fellow Newmarket resident) John Herman. It’s also going to benefit 3 different charities, so this is a wonderful event all around. I’m in on this wicked jam session as an illustrator along with Mr. Bobbett,Matt Talbot, and Dave Chavalier.
Here’s my entry for Leslie Poston‘s excellent Orwellian tale “The Smokers”…
and my take on the delightfully whimsical “Oly 33 Motive” by Brian Spielvogel…
For more info head over to John Herman’s site…. I’m pretty excited for this. All steampunk systems GO!!
