Illustrators – a documentary

Journalist, writer and video-maker Andrea Chirichelli along with co-director Marco Bassi made a documentary called ILLUSTRATORS, that follows four Italian illustrators: Alessandro “Shout” Gottardo, Emiliano Ponzi, Olimpia Zagnoli and Francesco Poroli as they offer their views on the illustration industry that has transformed completely ever since the Internet’s arrival.

The documentary lasts approximately 70 minutes and is subtitled in English, and is truly inspiring in how they share their thoughts into an industry that has seen a marked change in the world of publishing, commercials and magazines.

According to Andrea, “ILLUSTRATORS is a journey of images in the creativity of a nation, Italy, depressed and mortified under the political and economic aspect, but still capable of showing its best side and bound to live, at least under the artistic profile, an outright “Second Renaissance.”

Grab a bucket of popcorn and bring your sketchbook fellow illustrators – there’s lots to learn from this amazing video.

Thanks Andrea!
