Top Hollywood Illustrator, Ciara McAvoy, wins prestigious Creative Design Award for "Filth, " written and directed by Jon S. Baird (Cass) and based on the Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) novel of the same name, Filth stars James McAvoy, who himself won Best Actor at the 2013 British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) and Jameson Empire Awards in 2014.
Just over a month after Steel Mill Pictures and Magnolia Pictures released the award-winning film Filth on DVD and Blu-ray in the U.S., Ciara McAvoy’s traditionally illustrated Filth movie poster was awarded Outstanding Creative Design—over thousands of global entries—at the 44th Annual Creativity International Print & Packaging Design Awards. -prweb.com
First of all, if you haven't seen Filth yet, go buy a DVD or download it on iTunes! I personally haven't read the book yet, but if the movie is this amazing then the book is probably a perfect definition of awesome in a whole new level.
I will not reveal any spoilers if you haven't read the book or watched the movie yet. All you have to know is that, James McAvoy's character, Bruce Robertson is entirely different from his role as Charles Xavier. (A bit similar to the DOFP one's previous actions.)
And everything came to me as a bomb, too. And this is could easily be one of your favorite young Professor X films of all time. (I mean, James McAvoy.)
Now here is one of the coolest part..
The promotional poster for Filth, isn't digitally made. It's hand-painted and a lot of effort and passion is dedicated to it.
I am out of words to describe how amazing her artwork is, so I will quote:
McAvoy’s promotional poster for Filth, which captured the true essence of the film’s dark comedy, also captured the attention of the judges. Her win is an indication that the world of movie-campaign marketing still has a place for well-executed traditional illustration—a field often believed to be a dying art given the proliferation of photographic and digital imagery used in movie poster design in recent years. -prweb.com
If you don't know who Ciara McAvoy is, she is a Scottish film poster artist, and her artworks especially in oil, is surreal.
The other best part is that both the McAvoys (contrary to popular belief, the two has no immediate familial relation) won for their incredible work in this movie.
Congratulations to Ciara McAvoy in winning the Outstanding Creative Design Award for Her Movie Poster for Magnolia Pictures' Film "Filth"!
And also, Congratulations to James who won prestigious awards for his role in this movie:
British Independent Film Award for Best Actor
London Critics Circle Film Award for British Actor of the Year
Empire Award for Best Actor
Congratulations to these amazing people!
Let's wait for Victor Frankestein's release on October 2, 2015! And he's going to be with Daniel Radcliffe in this movie! (Bonus!)
In the meantime, watch Jamesy's brand new movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby : Them where he portrays Connor Ludlow, Eleanor Rigby's (Jessica Chastain) husband.
