Drawing the Motion Picture tour at the HRC

Friend of AJFF and Harry Ransom Center docent Laraine Lasdon will lead a FREE, IN PERSON private AJFF tour of the “Drawing the Motion Picture” exhibition. Explore the beauty and complexity of moviemaking through sketches, storyboards, and designs that illuminate the production of motion pictures from the silent era to the present day in this new exhibition from the Harry Ransom Center. Rare concept paintings, set designs, storyboards, scripts, film stills, correspondence, and more tell a visual story of the production of your favorite films, bringing a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the creative process of filmmaking. Behind-the-scenes stories of some of the biggest films in more than 100 years of cinema history are revealed through the artworks and designs that shaped their final form. See production art associated with iconic movies like Rebel Without a Cause, Raging Bull, Top Gun, Apollo 13, and Lawrence of Arabia, many connected with innovative directors like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, Mike Nichols, Michael Powell, Nicholas Ray, Martin Scorsese, Stephen Spielberg, King Vidor, and more.

Additional details:  there will be 2 simultaneous tour groups, each with a maximum of 15 people.  Only reserve tickets if you will actually attend (otherwise you are preventing others from participating.)   Meet at the Harry Ransom Center at 10:55 AM on Wednesday, June 28.  Tour lasts approximately 1 hour.
