Bill Sienkiewicz 1992: Unforgiven movie poster
Bill Sienkiewicz discusses the project in Tales from the Edge #9
One of six color painted poster comps I did for Clint Eastwood’s revisionist western, (in addition to 12 black and white.) A photo montage was ultimately used as the poster but working on it was still an invaluable experience. I did several movie posters for European release (the American versions of those films were also photo). I came away mourning that at least for the time being in the US illustrated movie posters like those I fell in love with as a student, were dead in the water. The emphasis seems to be on giving only the absolutely essential info: in as blatant a way as possible. Subtlety or beauty of design is the kiss of death. All the posters seem to be one or two big head shots of the stars, usually side lit and cut exactly down the middle with no background or environment for the heads and the title usually only slightly larger than the star’s name. Subtle, it ain’t.
Even though a poster like that for Apocalypse Now by Robert Peak used large heads and other background elements similar to what I describe here, the final effect was one of pure artistry and intelligence. It conveyed the emotion of the film to me far more effectively than a photo could have. Add to that, the human touch that it was done by hand and extremely well thought out, instead of what feels to me like current trend of stamping out cookie cutter photo clones… ah, hell, don’t get me started.

Sad that the days of awesome movie posters is long gone… :-(

The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

we’re almost 3/4 of the way there!! c’mon guys, every bit counts!

will it ever stop

fucking signal boost

IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

IF THE U.S. FALLS TO THIS IT WILL OPEN OTHER DANGEROUS DOORS INTERNATIONALLY.

Last one, SIGNAL BOOST!!!

We do not normally post this content on this blog but this situation is dire please reach out where you can. If you think internet censorship and restrictions end with the end if net neutrality you are poorly mistaken. It will continue and more lines will be drawn around us. The worst part is is not being properly reported in the news and the average person is unaware.
more will be taken if you don’t stand up now
