Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six Poster Movie Kickstarter Launches Today

"Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six" is a film that explores the world of movie poster art, past and present; the artists who create it, companies that commission it, galleries that display it, and collectors and fans who hang it. Kevin Burke is the man who is the Director and Producer of the film.

Beginning with the golden age of movie poster art in the 70's and 80's they'll be interviewing a number of high profile art personalities from that era, including legendary film marketing director, Tony Seiniger, the man behind the inception of the original "Jaws" poster. They'll be speaking with Andrea Alvin, a long time member of the film marketing community and wife of the late, great John Alvin, creator of such iconic works as the original one-sheets for "Blade Runner", E.T.", "Blazing Saddles", "Gremlins", and countless more. Placing a special focus on John and his career they'll ask the question of where traditional illustrated posters disappeared to, and why.

Moving into this decade, Kevin has been interviewing and following several modern screenprint artists, in various stages of their careers, through the process of producing illustrated movie poster art and speaking with them about their influences, their challenges, dealing with studios, print houses, and galleries. They've conducted interviews with independent print house Skuzzles to pick their brains about why illustrated art is so important to movie fans. They've visited Mondo in Austin, Texas to discuss the enormous impact that they've had on bringing illustrated film art back into the limelight. Kevin will even be profiling some collectors of movie poster art and speaking with them about its importance, how to store it and how to frame it (yep. They're going so far as to visit a frame manufacturer to get an inside look on custom framing movie art).

To top it all off, they're putting together a one of a kind gallery show featuring a ton of original posters from some really incredible artists.

It's a hugely ambitious project, but it's a story that needs to be told. And they intend to tell the hell out of it.

"Show Us the Goods" Contest

Post No Joes Productions is proud to announce commencement of the "Show Us the Goods" Contest. In an effort to promote their upcoming film "Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six", Post No Joes is giving you poster art collectors, fans, and even amateur artists a chance to appear in the film by uploading a 15 second video of you showing off your favorite poster from your collection.

It can be an official piece of marketing material like a one-sheet, a limited edition screenprint inspired by any film, or even a poster that you've created yourself. Winning submissions will be strung together and played in the film over the end credits. Simply visit for more information and to upload your submission. There you will also find a link to the Kickstarter program that goes live today at 10 am EST.

Here are the official screenprints that were created exclusively for the film, only available through the Kickstarter Campaign (the first with a metallic ink variant and the second with a GID variant) shown above by Paul Ainsworth and Matt Ryan Tobin.
