Hand-written Godfather Poster

A (rather kitsch, when you look at the whole thing) Godfather poster consisting entirely of the hand-written movie script. Got to admire the hard graft that went into it.

My kid could paint that...

Posted on September 13, 2007

my kid could paint that Marla Olmstead

"My kid could paint that" from Sony Pictures and Amir Bar-Lev.

In the span of only a few months, 4-year-old Marla Olmstead rocketed from total obscurity into international renown – and sold over $300,000 dollars worth of paintings. She was compared to Kandinsky and Pollock, and called "a budding Picasso."

And then, five months into Marla’s new life as a celebrity and just short of her fifth birthday, a bombshell dropped. CBS’ 60 Minutes aired an exposé suggesting strongly that the paintings were painted by her father, himself an amateur painter. As quickly as the public built Marla up, they tore her down. [...] the Olmsteads were barraged with hate mail, ostracized around town, sales of the paintings dried up, and Marla’s art dealer considered moving out of Binghamton. Embattled, the Olmsteads turned to the filmmaker to clear their name. Torn between his own responsibility as a journalist and the family’s desire to see their integrity restored, the director finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into a situation that can’t possibly end well for him and them, and could easily end badly for both.

(Trailer after the break)

"The whole story, really, is about grown-ups..." - sounds about right.

LiveSurface Templates

Posted on September 12, 2007

shift livesurface

The Shift LiveSurface Layered Image Library offers hi-res Photoshop templates of empty billboards, hoarding and products. The templates are ready-masked and contain pre-formatted Photoshop 3D objects so you just have to drag your artwork into Photoshop and you've got your finished comp! (See the Quicktime on the home page).

A single template costs $29. I imagine most agencies doing this kind of work have their own home-made versions kicking around - we certainly used to.

Joshua Distler did the identity and website. His portfolio is well worth a look.

Thanks, Kibitz!
