We love watching movies. They take us to places we’ve never been and inside the skin of people quite different from ourselves. They offer us a window onto the wider world, broadening our perspective and opening our eyes to new wonders.

There are some movies, characters or film scenes that impress us so much that we want to capture those feelings we experienced watching them or to celebrate somehow all those wonderful emotions. What better way to do that than to have something in our home or office that reminds us of some of our favorites?

This is the idea behind the collaboration between German illustrator Julian Rentzsch and Steffen Heidemann and Viktoria Klein from Stellavie, and independent design studio – they teamed-up to create a unique set of posters featuring movie directors merged with their famous films.

So far, the team has released three posters – Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese and David Lynch. The prints portray movie directors with their groundbreaking work, within the history of cinematography. By combining their faces with images of scenes from their famous movies, we get to appreciate the finer details in this work. At the bottom of each print, you’ll find a quote from each director that sums up his own approach to filmmaking.

The works were made in both analogue and digital, with the analogue part including pen, ink and watercolor. The posters are printed as high quality giclée/fine-art prints on beautiful cotton paper stock. All are hand-signed and finished with an elegant embossing. You can expect to see the release of posters featuring Tim Burton and Stanley Kubrick. “The third director is not yet cast in stone,” they say.
