Waltz with Bashir wins!

Waltz with Bashir, Ari Folman’s animated documentary about the 1982 war in Lebanon, won the Golden Globe for best Best Foreign Language Film! I still have to see this film, very excited to see Asaf Hanuka’s illustrations animated.

  • anyone seen this?

  • Kunal and I watched this at Granville 7 during the festival… We couldnt say a word for a few hours afterwards. I’ve never seen a theater so quiet right after the show. powerful powerful film…

  • aaa! i want to see this too, though i have no clue where it’s showing!

    • yea i really want to see it on the big screen

  • looks so sweet. can’t wait to see this.

  • hey there, I must correct you about the illustrator of the film, It’s true that Asaf Hanuka was part of the illustrators of the film, BUT the illustration were made by David Polonsky and he recruit Asaf to the project because of his quality and his style.

  • what i said originally was i am excited to see Asaf’s illustrations animated – i realise he was only one of many illustrators and he wasn’t an animator, i just like his style and was excited to see his work animated. thanks for the additional info though.

  • saw it, totally badass animation style, film was right along the lines of persepolis

  • Miflé

    Uhh I see that film and I very like it!! Good and nice work, respect!!

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
