Titan Students Among the Tops
in Movie Marketing Competition
July 14, 2003 :: No. 7
Amidst the entertainment industry’s
best motion picture marketers, Placentia resident Brian Lee Growe
recently won second place honors in the student competition of the
Hollywood Reporter’s 32nd annual Key Art Awards — which
salutes achievements in motion picture marketing and advertising.
Growe, a junior majoring in art, was presented his
award — including $2,500 — by Marc Shmuger, vice chairman
of Universal Pictures, for his entry in the trailer (movie preview)
category. Recent BFA in art graduate Jose A. “Joe” Casillas
of Chino captured third place and $1,000 in the one-sheet (poster)
category. Six students were awarded cash prizes, to be split between
the winners and their schools.
Students created their posters or trailers for either
“A Beautiful Mind” (Growe and Casillas) or “Moulin
Rouge.” The competition received more than 300 submissions
from 28 colleges and design schools in California and New York.
The Key Art Awards were launched in 1972 to honor
the accomplishments of art directors, designers, illustrators, photographers
and copywriters responsible for developing the art used in motion
picture marketing and promotion.
