This podcast is my poster school!

Couldn’t be more excited to discover this niche podcast. As a designer looking to get into posters for film there few centralized resources dedicated to the art of the poster. Yes it is long but I kinda love the length and tangents because drawing takes forever and this is the perfect pair to art. Thank you guys for putting this together !

Always a great listen!

Love this podcast as Sam and Brandon are very intelligent and discuss poster design in an informative way. Their topics are always interesting and they make everything approachable!

Brandon and Sam are the poster men!

I think of myself as more interested in movies than design, but this show makes me question that. These guys know design and designers. They put a lot of time into the research and also finding the reference images (visit their website!).

Any filmmaker who has control over marketing should listen to at least a few episodes to appreciate the art of poster design. And for designers of all stripes, this is a must listen. This is two top designers giving a peek behind the curtain. Highly recommended!
