any of you recognize the font in this movie poster? http://www.core.nu/temp/amelie_3.jpg (it's a wonderful film by the way.) thanks!
After I saw Amelie I went on a mad fonthunt for that script. Along the way I ran into scores of great frenchie brush scripts like Chaplin, Pepita, Impuls, Stentor, Charme, and Palette, but none of those are it. Could be a custom job. I kept seeing the names Imre Reiner, Helmut Mattheis, and Martin Wilke associated with the style - so maybe searching for the work of those boys will help. Stephen
Yep, they are pretty close. A custom typeface? For a little French movie? Really? Imre Reiner's work is so close, but it's not it...
After talking to the Triangelfilm Art Director, I now know the name of the font: OPTI Champion Script. Anyone knows who is the distributor?
How kind of the friendly A.D. to answer you so quickly. OPTI Champion? Wow. I'd never think to check their stuff. It's so hard to find samples. Here's OptiFont's site.
Since you're in Sweden, was the same typeface used on the Swedish posters (I don't remember)? If that's the case, contact the Swedish distributor, Triangelfilm. They might know.
