Best And The Worse Daybills, Locally Produced Artwork - Australia vs New Zealand A No Contest.
Wolf Larsen ( 1958 ). Australian Richardson Studio daybill and a New Zealand first release daybill distributed there by a different distributor. One has to feel sorry for collectors ( if any ) of New Zealand printed daybill film posters.
The majority of films released in New Zealand were from the same film distributor that was the case in Australia, and the Australian daybills were used there. The remaining product that was released in New Zealand by other distributors, that were different from the Australian distributors had to have their own daybills designed and printed in New Zealand. The daybills printed were almost all inferior in design, as you can see above with the Wolf Larsen example. Very little time and effort and pride in their work was put into whoever was responsible in producing all the New Zealand product.Whether is was a cost and time factor or / and a complete lack of talent in the designing department, who knows. I will possibly show some of the better and the worse examples at a later time.
This Vintage Movie Poster Forum is powered by some old cinema posters, the flame retardant properties of a Top Gun Daybill, and a
British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
