Last night in NYC was the Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories of Craftsmanship in Film held at the Museum of Moving Image. The event sounds like something we’re probably not interested in so therefore we decided to Google what this was and came across a description that it’s three-year exhibition by Persol. Read the copy and paste below and then get to the poll.
PERSOL MAGNIFICENT OBSESSIONS: 30 stories of craftsmanship in film, a three-year exhibition series presented by Persol, celebrates stories of obsessive workmanship behind some of cinema’s most iconic and compelling on-screen moments. The second installment of the exhibit will be on view from June 14 through August 19 at Museum of the Moving Image and will explore the work of ten esteemed filmmakers, designers, and technicians through a presentation of rarely seen props and costumes, behind-the-scenes research notes, sketches, video interviews, and materials used in the pre-production process.
