The Gangster Squad FreePak Shoots Photos Inspired by the Movie’s Aesthetic; Extends Story Beyond Theaters
Tuesday, November 20, 2012—Warner Bros. Pictures and Hipstamatic announce the Gangster Squad FreePak: a Hipstamatic lens, film and virtual camera case inspired by Gangster Squad, the forthcoming movie set in the 1940s, starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Sean Penn as notorious mobster Mickey Cohen, with Nick Nolte and Emma Stone. The movie’s director, Ruben Fleischer, collaborated with Hipstamatic to develop the Gangster Squad FreePak—from the lens effect to the photo border to the camera case design, each element is a reminiscent nod to the film and the era.
“It’s been great working with the Warner Bros. Pictures team and director Ruben Fleischer, all of whom understand that photos are the new digital currency of our time,” said Lucas Buick, CEO and co-founder, Hipstamatic. “This latest collaboration gives us the opportunity to continue helping our partners pioneer a new era in brand marketing, while simultaneously adding value to our Hipstamatic community and inspiring them to take more photos.”
