Holy Crap! Movie Posters Just Got Cooler!!

Published at: Feb. 12, 2007, 8:08 a.m. CST by Moriarty

Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. This is one of those stories that isn’t about a specific film, but is instead about the advancement of one of my favorite peripheral aspects of filmgoing, the one-sheet. I have a pretty huge collection of movie posters. Sure, it’s nothing compared to the 37 billion that Harry has, but I’ve got far more than I can display at the moment, some in frames but most in tubes, and I love my movie posters. I think the great one-sheets are art on their own, removed from the films they advertise, and any time someone can bring something new to the table, I’m interested. What you’ll see if you follow the link below did indeed blow my mind as promised, and I am dying to see one of these up close. Follow all the links in the article. It’s worth it. There are some really great examples of this 3D hologram printing technology that this company has developed. Anyone wanna bet we see an AVATAR poster by these guys?

Hey Harry and Moriarty, I'm sending this cool news to both of you just to make sure one of you actually gets it and reads it. There is a new video technology being developed and it's simply amazing. Actually, that word can't really even describe this technoloies potential. According to this artical and video, James Cameron is all over this new technology. You can read the article and find links to the video examples which will blow your mind at the following website. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL ARTICLE! CLICK HERE FOR A FULL GALLERY OF TEST POSTERS! CLICK HERE FOR THE BEST FULL-MOTION OF THE BUNCH! CLICK HERE FOR THE TERMINATOR POSTER THEY MADE FOR JAMES CAMERON! If you use this, call me INKMACHINE.

    A Hologram?

    by BrandonGK

    I'm really fucking impressed. I mean it isn't like I didn't get hologram trading cards with comic books way back in the early 90s. Oh wait I did, next please.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 8:09 a.m. CST

    I See, Brandon...

    by drew mcweeny

    So your trading cards had full-motion video on them, did they? Try clicking on that soccer link. Then show me the trading card that did that.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 8:25 a.m. CST

    The BEST thing about these

    by Doctor_Sin

    is that they are full-color and don't have that "hologram" look to them. And they really move - not like those renticulated (sp?) "holo-cards." These posters are badass.

    While it is the best I've ever seen, it does look like an advanced form of the lenticular baseball cards. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenticular

    by Kraken

    I want an Avatar teaser poster, and about 1,000 shares of stock in XYZ RGB right now! That's pretty amazing, I can't get over how thin the material is and how clear the 8 seconds of hologram is. I can see why Cameron was so blown away by this. Come on Cameron! Be the first to come out with a one sheet for this tech, there's got to be an Avatar teaser concept for this material that can be used.

    A STAR WARS POSTER..

    by connor187

    would be nice I think. maby like that football one but with Darth Vader taking his light sabre out and waving it around a bit or maby his burnt cock? just a thought.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 8:36 a.m. CST

    It is cool but it is old tech?

    by doc ffej

    Afraid not! I work for XYZimaging. These are film based posters that have 1280 frames of video imbedded into the film via coloured pulse lasers. We can put video or CG files into these "VIDEO POSTERS" They are NOT holograms...not in the traditional sense anyway. This is literally 8-12 seconds of video in a peice of plastic that's no thicker than a peice of paper. All you need is cool content and a light source.

    Lenticular can only do 1 second and is very thick

    by Kraken

    This is around 1mm thin and can do 8 seconds without the "lenticular" blur effect. You guys don't know what you're talking about when you're calling this old technology. That's like looking at the computers today and comparing them to the computers of 1985 and saying "what... I had a computer back then" ... this is from the wiki on lenticular - "The combined effect can be used to show two or more different images simply by changing the angle one views the print from. If you use more images, taken in a sequence (30+), one can even show a short video of about one second. "

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 8:43 a.m. CST

    Kind of cool, but a pain to view in a theater lobby.

    by ExcaliburFfolkes

    Who has the time to walk back and forth in front of each and every one of these things to see what they do? Plus, logistically it's chaos when numerous people try to do that in a crowded lobby. Save the clips and trailers for viewing in the theater before the show or online at home.

    So, they built a better mouse trap

    by decypher44

    Yeah, they are kinda neat. But, I'd rather have a painted poster or a flat screen monitor with a "teaser" video - or both interspersed.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 10:19 a.m. CST

    That's the idea

    by doc ffej

    That is the idea deCypher. The movie posters will have a teaser video in them. And after they get returned from they're spot in theaters...they will be sold to the public.

    question is?

    by doc ffej

    What are you talking about? This is a poster...it is a 12 second video...NOT a feature film. It's advertising man. You hang it on a wall and people walk by it and say...Wow..cool poster....they don't sit down in front of it with a bag of popcorn and then review it. LOL...I think you missed something somewhere.

What's the big deal. Last I checked, those guys already lived once before. And HELLO, I already have a copy of Abbey Road. Next please. *YAWN*." Actually, it's not that they're cynics.

    First off, those are awesome!!! I highly doubt the video even begins to do them justice, they'll kick you in the nuts when you see them in person. Second, thank you to MC Vamp.

Third, the Terminator endo-skeleton is absolutely tired, frickin everyone uses that damn thing.

    Ok, his work is kinda timeless, but this holoshit is cool...just don't expect it to be commercially viable for the next 10 to 20 years though.

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    I am sure these will be a cash cow for the consumer market place. The studios would be foolish not to cash in. Anyway to find out how much these will cost for the general public? I would love to own that Terminator one.

    First you make an ass out of yourself by trying to sound like you know what your talking about and then you try to retort with another stupid comment. Just turn off your computer and walk away. It's for your own good. Or should I say "pwned" good? Snap!! Oh yeah, the soccer poster looks wicked cool. How much does one of those posters go for? One of Jessica Alba dancing from Sin City would be AMAZING!!!

    by Uncapie

    Yes, you're right. "Avatar" is the animated movie. Most people understood what I meant. Though, if "AVALON" makes a ton of money, I don't doubt there will be a sequel. And its one "p" not two.

    Limitations?

    by Devilant

    Absolutely phenomenal work. Very Minority Report. My only concern for limitation of maximum potential for this technology (ie billboards, buildings) is that moving video is already restricted as a hazard to all vehicular transport.

    Sorry, these won't alter tickets prices

    by The_Boo

    Posters are not paid for by the theatres, they are part of the films advertising budget, that's why if you read the fine print on any authentic poster (i.e. the ones in a theatre, not reproductions from allposters or Suncoast) they state that they are the peoperty of the studio blah blah blah. This also wouldn't raise film price because that is not how the business model for the industry works. The studios take a percentage of box office on top of a flat rate for the print, these posters would undoubtedly mean more box office, therefore more revenue so it's a cost/profit tradeoff situation. I'd expect to see them by summer.

  • Feb. 12, 2007, 11:32 p.m. CST

    uncapie really is dumb

    by The_Boo

    This has nothing to do with the process for "Avatar". These posters are made from a DIGITAL 3D source, in other words CGI. There may be a scanning procees used in "Avatar" similar to what this company uses but that has nothing to do with the poster technology. Please don't bother to reply because A) it's past your bedtime. and B) your response would be pathetic and someone else will just rip you a new dirt chute.

    by Kevin Bosch

    UnCapie is kidding. He made a typical cynical, hater/complainer response. Then, when he was unnecessarily corrected, he made a pompous yet dreadfully misinformed retort. I saw it as sarcasm from the very beginning.

    by bustamove

    http://www.xyzrgb.com/newsletter/holos/newsletter/newsletter.html They are great things but they sure ain't cheap! They are kinda like reflection holograms and require a specific kind of light source which is included. Something the size of the terminator would prob cost about 5000 bucks at the moment. They look stunning on the wall!
