Ep.142 Adam McDaniel – Pt.1 The Life of Richard Amsel – Movie Poster Legend

Episode Notes

This week’s podcast is an epic two parter! In the first I speak to Adam McDaniel, an artist himself who is also deep into a project honouring and documenting the life of movie poster artist Richard Amsel who sadly died in 1985 at the young age of 37. Richard, alongside Drew Struzan and John Alvin, was one of the great movie poster artists of his generation most known for his iconic Raiders of the Lost Ark poster. Adam has spent years collating as much information about Richard as he can to create a wonderful documentary and book to celebrate Richard’s life and work. Part two includes a chat with Paul Shipper, one of today’s great movie poster artists who is involved in the Richard Amsel documentary. Join us as we chat about the project and Richard’s life.
