My newest print was announced today, my first collaboration with Mondo and Universal , based on Back to the Future, "let's see if you bastards can do ninety"!
First things first; I know that Marty had already stumbled down the hill when he witnessed himself going back to 1955. Also, that it may have been 1:35am when the jump actually happened, but 1:34am was the last time seen on screen, so I wanted to stay true to that. I also did a bit of landscaping to the trees and bushes, as I thought they were pretty ugly in the movie and something had to be done about the mall signage... calling it "JP Pinney" wasn't going to cut it for me :P
So, Back to the Future nerd stuff aside, I am a huge, devoted fan of all three movies. I've been to every shooting location as I am lucky enough to have grown up in Southern California and my Mom even attended high school at Whittier Union High. I spent my younger years seeing each flick in the theater, my teenage years endlessly dissecting the logic of the time travel and the majority of my life perfecting a flawless Crispin Glover impression.
When I got the offer to not only work with Mondo, but on Back the the Future, I immediately had an idea, which basically turned into the final print. Doc lies murdered on the ground, Marty hops into the DeLorean, the Libyans give chase and eventually pull out a rocket launcher, Marty delivers the titular line of the poster and bam, that wondrous Silvestri theme kicks into full gear for the first time in the movie and with 1.21 gigawatt explosion, Marty's life is changed forever.
It's such a powerful moment, that they do it twice in the same movie. It gives me chills every time I think about it and I couldn't be happier to have paid tribute to it. I will have APs of both version eventually and they will be signed/sketched versions.
Good luck to everyone trying for one of these tomorrow! Always remember, if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
