Movie Poster: HOOTERS the Documentary
Posted on 15 July 2010
I recently shot and designed this movie poster for HOOTERS the docu-comedy by Anna Margarita Albelo. Anna asked me if I could shoot “Noir! Intrigue! Lesbians! Smoke! Murder!!!” How could I say no to any of the above?? Especially when I love the ol’ Hollywood style of lighting and it meant I’d be working with hot lights instead of strobes. And honestly, how could I say no to shooting with Anna and Guinevere Turner?
Of course, I couldn’t have done it without the marvelous make-up artist Marla Verdugo, and my stalwart assistants Akirophoto and Britt Ringer. And I definitely couldn’t have done it without our lovely filmmaker talents and awesome models, Anna and Guin. Much thanks to everyone for a very fun shoot! And for tolerating my silly impressions of a 1930s gumshoe: “Shaaay, you got spunk, kid! Ya jus’ might make it in this townh…” It was a joy to work with all of you guys.
HOOTERS is screening at OUTFEST this Friday (Director’s Guild of America) and Sunday (REDCAT) in Los Angeles. Check it out if you can, it should be a real H@@T!
