New Charlie Kaufman!

In case you haven’t heard, here’s the trailer for Synecdoche, New York – written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and produced by Spike Jonze. Needless to say I have really really really high expectations for this one.

  • this looks like it will be an interesting; yet amazing movie. I’m super stoked especially that Mr. Hoffman is in this movie as well.. by any chance do you know when it is being released for viewing? I did not see a date or I am just completely blind.

  • 24 October 2008 (limited)

    Not sure about wide release.

  • mitch

    ah, how I love Kaufman’s work,
    this looks outstanding!

  • yea i CAN’T wait

  • Anytime Spike Jonez or Phillip Seymour Hoffman are involved in a project, I’m stoked. But the fact that both of them are involved in this one is super exciting.

  • Jeremie

    You can see painting of Alex Kanevsky at 1;15, i love this artist.

  • the thing i am almost most excited about and failed to mention above is that the music courtesy of Jon Brion. How can this not be a fantastic picture?

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
