This Art in the Movies...
by Roy Mackey
Here are some of the movies and TV productions that my art has been in to date. Having work used in movies and TV is always fun for artists. Not even counting the fact they pay you to use it and then you get your art back!! There is no question that the movie industry benefits a lot of people here in Vancouver. A huge thumbs up to supporting them as they support us with not only jobs and art rentals but entertainment!!! Oh and hey pass the popcorn!!!! I think it has been five to ten productions so far but have to dig out the facts first and when I do will be posting them here. Stay tuned!!
Images etc coming soon...
