Christoper Nolan’s Quay, and The Short Films of The Quay Brothers


Poster for a touring show of Quay Brothers’ shorts re-released on 35MM, curated by Christopher Nolan, along with Nolan’s new documentary about them, simply called Quay. I shot the backgrounds, hand-lettered the type, and developed a custom font for this project. There were few high resolution stills, so I shot these backgrounds and designed this originally while on the road in Eastern Europe in 2007 (and redesigned in 2016 for the Christopher Nolan Blu-ray edition). The interiors are the old East Berlin Post Office, and the frames are from the streets of Prague, and the Black Church in Brasov Romania (b. 1308). More info is available from Zeitgeist Films.


DVD and Blu-rayBox Sets

Here’s a video review of the Blu-ray edition of the box set. I didn’t make this video no do I know its maker, but he does a good enough job showing it off.
