In 2008, Occupy (one of this blog's favourite blogs) asked 40+ creatives to create their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past — whether it be a literal or abstract solution. The result was ‘Now Showing’, an Art exhibition that appeared in London + Barcelona that paied homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of prints, one off screen prints and sculptures. Contributors included: Paul Willoughby, Michael Gillette, Nathan Fox, Pietari Posti, Mario Hugo, HORT, James Joyce, Build and Hellovon to name a few.
Here is a selection of favourites. But also they are running a competition:
4 years on and we reckon it’s about time we laid the project to rest. After this week the posters will no longer be available to purchase. To help commemorate this, we will be running a twitter competition all week. The lucky ‘Follower’ picked at random will get to pick any of the 26 posters above. The winner will be announced next week.
TO ENTER: simply tweet the following: .The ‘Now Showing’ alternative film posters will be gone next week. RT for a chance to win 1 of these 26 posters http://bit.ly/L1orIB #nsc
