Project #6 – Pixel Portraits!

Here’s the first bunch of great “pixel portraits” submitted to Project #6! I especially like the ones from the few films I don’t recognize. If you’re gonna submit one, get in nice and close to the screen or zoom in – the more pixelated the better (instructions here) See how many you know…

  • Angelica J. M.

    The one by Neringa Greiciute is from the Royal Tenenbaums I believe, and from Ian Caulkett is Requiem for a Dream, and Carole’s is Thank You for Smoking perhaps.

  • pretty darn good so far, but there’s alot of toughies in there.

  • marmel

    Greiciute – Doctor Strangelove, Joe’s I think is Down by Law….

  • rob

    AW where’d my submission go? :(

  • Hey cool, (Gere Gerrits) is that Short Circuit?

  • Neringa Greiciute

    royal tenenbaums is right.
    but to guess the other ones, not mentioned ones, is pretty twisted.

  • Alice

    tara weber – trainspotting

  • Honey, I Shrunk The Kids?

  • pieirdes

    Findaly… Explorers. Yes?

    Many are already IDd (particularly the ones I’d be prouder of knowing) but…

    Also saw Planes, Trains & Automobiles.

  • findlay: Explorers.

  • geoff

    Findlay, that’s The Explorers! What a great movie. Isn’t that Ethan Hawke?


    Your Favorite: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles

  • EXPLORERS!!! [1985] Directed by Joe Dante, starring a young Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix. I love this film very much and a word must be said about the score by Jerry Goldsmith – wonderful.

    I was watching “Basic Instinct” on the telly and found that Jerry Goldsmith used the same sort of sounds and arrangements in composing its score. It didn’t fit that movie at all. I guess that’s my own personal judgment, which from a comparisons view is rather biased. But yeah…


  • Bob

    Jean de TREMONTELS is Blade Runner, her name is Sean Young or something
    Frank I think is First Blood
    Jacque is Big with Tom Hanks
    Twan is From Mad Max the road warrior “Condelini wants his hand back”

    Previous posts have answered most of these.

  • sr

    my fave still has to be Neringa Greiciute’s pic… although I’m lovin the Desperately Seeking Susan one… with a little dash of Top Gun…

  • laura was yours To Die For? (lizzie’s guess)

    i haven’t seen that, worth watching?

  • Yes, it is To Die For, Lizzie has a good eye…

    The movie is a bit uneven, but it’s entertaining and has some great memorable moments. Definitely one of Nicole Kidman’s best roles…she’s really chilling and creepy as a vapid, soulless local weather-woman who’ll do anything to become famous…


    Haley Brown’s pic is Rick Moranis in Little Shop of Horrors.

  • maybe ill check it out, it was Gus van sant wasn’t it?

    – nice lizzie

    so what’s left?

    did anyone confirm Josh Stone’s pic?

  • i wonder where my portrait is :\

  • From the 17/2 ‘Josh Stone: the actor is Jean-Pierre Léaud. The movie could be Domicile Conjugale or Baiser Volés but not sure.’

    it could also be Amour a vingt ans, defo one of the Antoine Doinel series.

    If I have go through my box set tonight and find the right scene, damn it I will!

  • phil

  • three new ones!

  • bocabierta

    thanx anyways :)

  • Lizzie is quite the movie buff.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

See the rest of the series below.
