Print Club London's Summers Screen Prints opens at Somerset House today. We were lucky enough to grab tickets for the preview last night and can definitely recommend it. 

This years show consists of fifteen film-themed screen prints by selected Print Club artists, including two of our personal favourites Cassandra Yap and Steve Wilson. Each print is an edition of 200, signed and numbered by the artist and available exclusively through Print Club London.

The show runs until 23 August in the West Wing Galleries, so there's plenty of time to pop in and see it.

The Movie Title Stills Collection

The Movie Title Stills Collection is a fantastic online resource for movie titles and end frames. Collated by designer Christian Annyas, the collection ranges from the early 1920's to the present day and can be viewed by decade or by 'Western' and 'Film Noir' genres.

There's plenty to look through - some are old classics, others are more obscure, some are bold and minimal, others are charmingly ornate, but they all have great typography. Enjoy.

Bass Notes: The film posters of Saul Bass

The last Saul Bass exhibition I remember in the UK was back in 2004 at London's Design Museum. As you would expect from a retrospective of such an influential designer, it was a very inspiring collection of work.

Much of his work was for the film industry and throughout the 60's Bass famously worked with film directors Martin Scorsese, Alfred Hitchcock and Otto Preminger producing iconic film posters. Posters we are now going to get the chance to see again thanks to Kemistry Gallery, London.

Bass Notes: The film posters of Saul Bass is a collection of film posters, title credits and film festival posters from the Lloyd Northover donation to the British Film Institute. I'm not sure which posters will be in the exhibition and I can't wait to find out, but to get you in the mood here's a selection of the classics...

Above posters all available to purchase At The Movies.

Up There

I love this little video, 'Up There'
directed by Malcolm Murray. It's a blatant Stella advertisement, but good on them for supporting traditional artisans.

The painting of large scale advertising is more of a dying art than hand-painting signage. I found it really interesting to see how it's done and to hear about the artists keeping it well and truly alive. You would definitely have to love your job to work in those conditions and train as an apprentice for that length of time though.

It's such a shame we don't have it here in the UK, I would pay much more attention to adverts if they'd been hand-painted on location.

Produced by Mekanism. Music by The Album Leaf.
Based on an original concept by Mother.

Alice in Wonderland Adaptations

Everyone seems Alice in Wonderland crazy at the minute with the release of Tim Burton's long awaited 3D version of this Lewis Caroll classic and The British Film Institute are no exeption.

To celebrate the Tim Buton release at IMAX, The British Film Institute are showing the following adaptations; the 1933 Paramount version, Dennis Potter's 'Alice' (1965), Jonathan Miller's BBC adaptation (1966), 'Dreamchild' (1985 - made using Jim Hensen's Creature Shop creations) and Jan Svankmajer’s 'Alice' (1988).

They have also released the recently restored, footage of the very first Alice in Wonderland film from 1903 (screen grabs above) created just 37 years after the the novel was written. Donated to the BFI in the early 60's the film was in a very poor condition, but it's still really interesting to watch...

"Directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, and was based on Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations. With a running time of just 12 minutes (eight of which survive), this 1903 film was the longest produced in England at that time and it represented a major investment for the pioneering Hepworth Studios that produced it. Some might venture to say it was the Avatar of its day."

There was no sound on the original film, so the piano accompaniment, 'Jill in the Box' was added after restoration to compliment the story. Read more about the restoration here.
