The Bigger Picture Show celebrates the design community in Indianapolis, showcasing re-imagined movie posters by some of our favorite designers and artists on the planet. This year’s show had a little something for everyone: cars, monsters, boats, tramps, lieutenants, t-tops, assassins, candy, dudes, captains, computer-peoples, artists, tributes, dorks, jedis, rats and even a faun thrown in for good measure. Yup. We asked our designer-artist friends to create a portrait of their favorite movie characters. And boy, did they give us way more than we ever imagined! All of the portraits were sold in a silent auction at the Speak Easy on Friday, May 8, and all proceeds went to benefit the Indy Film Fest and its mission to create a shared experience around film.
Created by our friends at Lodge Design in 2009, the Bigger Picture Show has grown into our biggest fundraiser, and one of the city’s most popular design events of the year. From the biggest box office hits by the decades to Oscar winners for Best Original Screenplay to an entire show built around the theme “50 Degrees of Greg Kinnear,” Lodge curates the show around a different theme. Since 2009, the Bigger Picture Show has helped raise more than $23,000 for the Indy Film Fest, and allowed us to engage a new movie-loving audience that isn’t afraid to reach out and punch us in our throats with their awesomeness.The Bigger Picture Show is made possible by our friends at Lodge Design.
