Amsel’s Lost Art: OLD BOYFRIENDS

One of Amsel's more obscure pieces was for the 1979 romantic drama OLD BOYFRIENDS, starring Talia Shire, Richard Jordan, Keith Carradine, and John Belushi.

The illustration below, as far as I know, was only published once, in a double-page VARIETY trade ad announcing the film's completion of principal photography. The final poster used a photographic reference, rather than Amsel's artwork.

This image required extensive cleanup and digital restoration -- so much that I knew I just wouldn't have the time to do it all myself. I therefore tasked the talented Stephanie Mann for help. Stephanie has been a longtime collaborator on this project, including a number of the elaborate animated motion graphics you'll see in the film.
