I just launched a new website and social network called "Art In Films".http://www.artinfilms.com
I created it to showcase the art you see in films that enhance the scene or are just in the background.
I'd love to get some Hawaii artists to join my network and showcase any work they may have in films. Big screen or Small. Blockbuster movies, independent, foreign films or locally produced shows like Hawaii Five-O. A painting or photograph in a scene or even a sculpture or some architecture?
The site has recently had a great write up by Ryan Ozawa on his Hawaii Blog.
The article can be read here:http://www.hawaiiweblog.com/2010/11/30/art-in-films
Also you don't need to be an artist to join or post, just an art lover. If you see some artwork you like in a film, grab a screen shot if you can or describe it and maybe one of the members will be able to provide more details about it. And you may be able to buy the art piece itself. I plan to incorporate an auction/sales component in the near future.
I welcome feedback and suggestions but please keep in mind that it is brand new (not even a week old) so I don't have a lot of content and/or members yet, so please be kind. And please join and invite your friends.
Thanks for reading my post, and please pass the word on.
