eyeworks 2011 poster trailer
Behold, the 2011 Eyeworks animated poster trailer! This year we again had the pleasure of having the Eyeworks posters designed/masterminded by the brilliant Sonnenzimmer team of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. 200 posters were designed and screenprinted by Sonnenzimmer, and we all took turns painting directly into a layer of wet ink while the layer was fresh off the press. We then photographed each poster sequentially, frame by frame, to make this screenprinted-poster-animation experience! If you keep an eye out, you can find the frames of this animation posted up around Chicago this week, and of course at the festival next weekend on November 5 & 6.
Here's a pic from Sonnenzimmer's site of Alexander and I painting into the wet ink of the posters in their studio.
