Project Description

In September 2013, The Distillery hosted a special Sign Painting edition of Live at The Distillery. The night featured a short talk and demonstration from local Sydney sign painter Roger Warsop. Roger's presentation was followed by the eagerly anticipated Australian premiere of Sign Painters: The Movie Produced by Sam Macon and Faythe Levine.

As a special celebration of September's Sign Painting Live at The Distillery, we created gifts exclusively for the guests. We wanted to portray the craft and skill involved in sign painting, in a printed medium, so we designed, animated and produced a 50-page flip-book. This limited edition 100-run piece featured letterpress printing with two inks, and sewn-stitch binding of Gmund Cotton 110gsm and Buffalo Board 320gsm.

We also produced a hand lettered popcorn box, which viewers could pop out and construct themselves. What better way to spend a night than with a movie about sign painters and popcorn in letterpress printed, self-constructed popcorn box?

Production Lesson(s)

Designing a flip book is one thing, but designing one to be letterpress printed proved to be a whole different story. Converting the each frame of animation to be letterpress friendly with overprinting proved to be a long and tedious task. The printing itself also proved to be quite difficult, as 48 frames¬†with 2 colours each involved many plate changes and registration headaches!”
