Film producer Jeffrey Levy-Hinte (Mysterious Skin, The Hawk Is Dying) sent us something really cool in the mail today that I assume will be making the rounds throughout Indiewood. It’s The Antidote-Waite-Smith Motion Picture Tarot Deck, a slim but entertaining collection of film-related tarot cards modified by the folks at Antidote Films. You can download a PDF version here.
Among the characters with tarot cards are The Director (a.k.a. “The Fool”), The Executive Producer (a.k.a.”Death”), The Talent Agent (a.k.a “The Devil”), The Development Process (a.k.a. “The Moon”), and so on. One of my favorites is the card for The World Premiere (a.k.a. “The Wheel of Fortune”). It reads: Destiny, fortune, success, elevation, luck, felicity, extravagance, boffo B.O., superfluity. The reverse of the card reads: Bomb.
