I'm a film director looking to make some movies..and I'm starting to write them too. This blog is dedicated to my life, my inspirations, and the trials and tribulations God puts in my life as I go through it.

The Art of the Modern Movie Poster, a tomb released in 2008 that could quite possibly stop a bullet, collects “more than 1500 international posters”, making it “the ultimate book on movie poster design from the last 60 years”. It makes a hell of an effort, and gives American audiences in particular a place to experience some of the greatest interpretations of film advertising to come out of countries around the globe. But there’s a gaping hole at the center of its look at key art in the United States: one of the most influential poster artists at the end of the 20th century is almost completely absent despite being responsible for well over a hundred one-sheets while bringing to life some of the most iconic properties that continue to exist today. You’ve seen his art even if you never knew his name, and if you’re a product of 1980s/early 1990s American culture, your life has definitely been touched in some way by his work. The man was a machine, and his output was everywhere.
Way back in 2010, a grad student named Matthew Riese launched a project to build a DeLorean hovercraft. Cut to 2013, and he’s cruising through the San Francisco Bay in his Back to the Future-inspired vehicle.
