An Evening with Pablo Ferro at Cinefamily Trailer

DO NOT MISS THIS 9/27/2011

You may not know his name, but chances are you’re already a huge fan of Pablo Ferro’s work. Proclaimed a genius by the likes of Stanley Kubrick, Hal Ashby and Jonathan Demme, Pablo’s career as a movie title sequence designer has brought him mega-accolades within the world of film production, and his large and varied body of work brought titles into the modern era with a style and approach that still ripples through contemporary cinema. From the moving collage of The Thomas Crown Affair to his trademark hand-drawn lettering for Dr. Strangelove, Pablo Ferro is a world-class designer of the highest order. Plus, Pablo also created some of cinema’s most memorable trailers of all time, such as the mindbending promos for A Clockwork Orange and Zardoz! We are delighted to host an entire evening devoted to Pablo’s legacy and historic portfolio — with the man, the myth, the master himself in attendance. Join us for a evening of impossibly cool titles, trailers, rare animations and unscreened shorts, all spliced together by an extended Q&A with Pablo!

THE OREGONIAN   2011

Film Theory CLub Fieldtrip to Cinefamily.  Friday Night Frights.  9/23/2011 11:59PM 

The Oregonian has very little dialogue and includes surreal, mystery, thriller and horror elements.  It was shot on super 16mm and has a beautiful grainy look.  The director Calvin Reeder had a short called The Rambler at Sundance in 2008 the same year my short Ignite played there.   Calvin’s girlfriend Lindsay Pulsipher also seen in True Blood stars in The Oregonian.  Rumor has it his next flick will be turning his short film The Rambler into a feature length film.  

THE BURGLARS 1971

This movie simply put blew us away.  We watched it on Sunday September 18th, 2011.  It’s a gem.  Arguably the best car chase scene ever.  Make sure you see the French version.
