Poster boys and girls
SOME people judge books by their covers. Organisers of the poster show Mise En SIN are hoping viewers will do the same with homegrown movies.
Opening on Feb 28 as part of the 2nd Singapore Short Film Awards event, the exhibition will feature 100 posters of Singapore short and feature films over at The Substation.
The comprehensive showcase will include poster art of movies by some 60 film-makers done from 2005 to the present. It runs the gamut from established names like Royston Tan, Glen Goei, Eric Khoo and Jack Neo to emergent award-winners like Boo Jun Feng, Anthony Chen, K Rajagopal and Sun Koh to under-the-radar independent film-makers, students and nominees of the short film awards.
Mise En SIN, a play on the cinematic term mise-en-scene, gives guests the opportunity to get copies of posters, as well as vote for their favourite posters online to win prizes. Organisers have also commissioned movie billboard artist Neo Chun Teck to create work for the awards and exhibition event.
