Movie Poster: Gone in 60 Seconds (1974 original classic)   Leave a comment

April 13th, Cinema Overdrive will run a screening of H.B. Halicki’s original 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds.  I had the honor of creating the poster for this show!  Originally, I thought about doing a white 60 MPH speed limit sign with ‘Gone in’ and ‘seconds’ painted on it – but that just seemed so ‘obvious’…   So I went with a vandalized 30 MPH Ramp sign instead.  I think the yellow color alone was a big improvement over the white speed limit option (plus it ties in with the whole ‘principal car’ color.  Here are some images for you (Oh, there’s a 3rd ‘hidden’ machine/vehicle in this poster – it can be seen on the actual poster – come see it at the show or check the Merchandise page where they’ll soon be posted for online sale here):

Movie Poster: Rolling Thunder!   Leave a comment

If you’ve not heard of Rolling Thunder, the movie, read all about it here.

Had lots of fun with my friend Matt of Cinema Overdrive while signing my Rolling Thunder poster prints – that guy is a champ for putting up with my short-term memory challenges (“What number are we on again?”)! Matt played photographer with his iPhone too, since my camera was missing in action.  Much appreciated.  🙂

The show on Wednesday was great, if you haven’t seen a screening of an old 35mm movie at the Colony Theater, you should really check it out.  Not to be missed.  The trailers at the beginning and end of the shows are worth the $5 ticket price alone!

Thanks to everyone who bought one of the 77 limited edition silk-screened posters or commented on them, the ‘live feedback’ is the best!  There are still some left – you can check them out at the Cinema Overdrive merchandise page.  Only $20!!! (plus shipping if you aren’t local)

It seems that the Major Rane character was shot down during the ‘Rolling Thunder’ military operation over Vietnam.  I allude to this in the poster.  You can read more about the real event here.

10% of my proceeds from the poster are going to Wounded Warrior Project – thanks to you veterans reading this!  –Travis Getz

In Honor of our Veterans…   Leave a comment

Matt Pennachi and I have agreed to donate 20% of the proceeds from sales of my Missing in Action 2 poster design to Wounded Warrior.    You can purchase the poster from the Cinema Overdrive film series merchandise section here.   Thank you veterans and your loved ones!

Movie Poster: MIA2 arrived and signed!   2 comments

Well, the screen prints of my “Missing in Action 2:  The Beginning” poster design arrived the other day in great shape from Nick and his team at The Half and Half in Columbia, SC.  Matt with Cinema Overdrive came over this weekend and we did the ‘signing ceremony’ thing!  Lots of fun talking about films and posters.  Really looking forward to the show this Wednesday at Raleigh’s Colony Theater at 8pm.  Posters can be purchased at the show, or pick them up online HERE.  Some shots for you (the poster looks even better in person – the ink has a great finish to it)…
