It’s almost too spot-on that Daniel Martinico‘s Slamdance film, OK, Good, focuses on a struggling actor living in Hollywood. But while a film festival entry about the trials and tribulations of making it in La-la Land might seem like cliche material, OK, Good is far from cliche. Starring co-writer Hug0 Armstrong, the film follows Paul Kaplan, “a typical actor in Los Angeles. He goes to auditions, takes movement class, sends out headshots, and listens to motivational tapes in his car. However, as Paul struggles through a series of demoralizing setbacks, he is pushed ever closer to the edge.” Sound heavy? It’s not, as OK, Good is apparently a hilarious look at one man, his (in)abilities, and how they confine and constrain him from even the most basic tasks his occupation demands.
Today brings us the first poster for OK, Good, which was designed by Adrian Kolarczyk, who recently won the SXSW Audience Award for Excellence in Poster Design in 2011 for his poster for Sophia Takal’s lovely Green. You can check out more about Kolarczyk and his work (including a look at the Green poster) over at Filmmaker Magazine.
After the break, check out the gaze-laden first poster for OK, Good. As ever, I’ve included screening information for utmost festival-going ease.
OK, Good will have two screenings at Slamdance: Sunday, January 22 at 10:30PM and Thursday, January 26 at 10:00AM. Check out more about the film on its official Slamdance page.
