Pablo

 

Year: 2012
Country: USA
Run Time: 103 minutes

Behind many of the great films of the past 60 years has been one man whose imagination and creativity helped revolutionize his genre. Narrated by Jeff Bridges, PABLO is a look at Pablo Ferro, the Title Designer for over 90 films including “Dr. Strangelove,” “A Clockwork Orange,” “Beetlejuice,” “L.A. Confidential,” and all three “Men in Black” films. After emigrating to NYC from Cuba as a teen, Pablo did all he could to stay in the drawing game, including breaking in with Stan Lee at Marvel comics. Directors Stanley Kubrick and Jonathan Demme hail him as a genius whose rise was a combination of hard work and unmatched creativity. Beginning his professional career in the advertising business, Pablo reinvented the modern commercial from stoic sales pitches to works of art including fast cuts, motion design, and speed-of-light graphics. It’s amazing to see that everything the current generations take for granted in the world of graphic design really began with one man in a red scarf. With a combination of character animation, motion design, and documentary footage, PABLO is an inspirational look at the life of a man born into a poor Cuban family who became Hollywood’s leading man … of design. – T.W.
