California Dreamin'

The Voyagers team was excited to attend film festivals in L.A. and Santa Cruz last month. The South Bay Film & Music Festival, hosted an opening night gala. A screening of Voyagers followed, along with a Q&A with Ian, Paul & Kate. Little Canyon, who makes an appearance at the end of the film with his parents Paul and Kate, also made his film festival debut. Then Voyagers was off to "surf city" for an afternoon of films at the Santa Cruz Film Festival!

Summer Screening Series: Green River Times Two

Voyagers hits the road this August to return to the locations where we filmed.  We'll return to the melon capitol of the West, Green River, Utah to share Voyagers at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum. We'll have a special outdoor showing at the same spot where both the French Trio and John Wesley Powell started their journeys: Expedition Island in Green River, WY.  Both screenings will be joined by the Voyagers team! Catch you on the river this summer!

Denali National Park

Denali National Park is celebrating 100 years of national parks  this summer with a Centennial Film Series. Voyagers is excited to join the series and have its Alaska premiere on August 15 with a free screening at the Denali's Visitor Center. The park also turns 100 in 2017!

A note from Pace Taylor on designing the poster for Voyagers

"I think good design comes out of a well researched appraisal of historical context for whatever it is you are designing for, otherwise the work won't be grounded. Being able to sift through the actual newspapers and postcards and even footage from the trio's time period gave me a great perspective to apply to the knowledge I had of the Art Deco movement for this modern retelling. I hope we found a happy marriage of the two periods!
 

Personally, I enjoy, and tend to prefer, inserting a hand-made aesthetic into my design work as I'm more of an illustrator than anything. So working with inspiration from this time frame was ideal as a lot of the work designers were doing then was handmade. This came across a lot in the French newspapers I looked through. You could see how much creative liberty and personality they got to put into the layouts. Every other typeface was different and they had these crazy angles going on a lot of the spreads. I loved it! However, even though I recreated a few of the typefaces by hand, I still created digital versions, and in doing so found myself caught between these two times, just like the viewers are with the film I think.  As a designer, being given the opportunity to reference the rich historical imagery for Voyagers was an absolute thrill."
