    I havent seen any, cept usual record company promo posters, or those mass produced huge photo of a band posters in a movie. Alot of Props dept who get asked to source posters for a scene, theyd just go out an get whats considered cool bands or bands that suit the character, they wouldnt spend major bucks on posters, 5 - 10 bucks is probably the max.
    I guess....

    I did a poster , it was for a short film. The main character was a muso who was playing a Lesbian bar, it was the opening shot on the Bar scene. They cut away from the poster to the bar.... 4 seconds of fame used up already

    "An artwork is normally assessed in quality by the amount of stimulation it brings about. The impact it has on people, the number of people that can relate to it, the degree of their appreciation, and the effect or influence it has or has had in the past, all accumulate to the 'degree of art.' Most artworks that are widely considered to be "masterpieces" possess these attributes." - Frank Kozik

    of course, steve w of screwball press did almost all of the prints featured in 'high fidelity'.

    i printed, but did not design, a poster for the band the eternals which somehow ended up in the movie 'barbershop', in the scene where the two thugs drag the atm into their bedroom.

    also, i printed, but did not design, a series of posters which were, i'm told, key elements in the movie 'newport south', which ran for only a very short time and was al but unheard of about a year ago. they also bought a bunch of my old screens and empty ink jars and squeeges to create the screenprinting setup the main character had in his room. i never saw the movie - it was gone before i knew it was in theaters.
    most of the time we never fish!

    in ROAD TRIP there's a Cibo Matto poster in the main kid's dorm room that Methane Studios did.

    and in an episode of BANDS ON THE RUN on VH1, i saw on of AA's At The Drive-In/Murder City Devils posters when one of the bands was doing an in-store.

    In the movie Small Soldiers (Universal) there is a part where they show the main kids bedroom and he has a few rock posters in there ones a Coop ones a Kozik and ones my reo speed dealer, honky tour poster. I don't think it was appropriate for an 8 year old to have a poster that said speed dealer on it w/ various other profanities,but whatever it's just a movie....
    Someone told me if you take the Universals tour in Orlando they have/had the bedroom duplicated there. I don't know if it's still there. I got 7 second of good exposure. w/ no credit. until now YES!!!
