“In collaboration with AIGA, and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Film Department, The Rice Design Alliance is pleased to present a talk by legendary graphic designer and film-titles designer Pablo Ferro on September 21, 2011 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Ferro, hailed as a genius by well-known director Stanley Kubrick, is lauded for his unique and influential visual style in films like Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and more recently, Good Will Hunting and Napolean Dynamite, as well as in television, animation, commercials, novels and now children’s books. Ferro is best known for quick-cutting, using multiple images within one frame, and his trademark hand-drawn lettering.”

“Giselle is a journey into a beautiful world of love, ghosts and mystery. The story of a peasant girl and the man who deceives her, Giselle is one of the most widely performed works of the Romantic era. Newly staged for Houston Ballet, this Giselle harkens back to early Russian productions.”
