Alice In Wonderland (1903)

Are you excited for the new Alice In Wonderland by Tim Burton? I didn’t realise it has been over 100 years since the first version of Alice In Wonderland was made, back in 1903!

You can now watch the film over at The Auteurs (a fantastic resource for all you cinephiles).

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    As cool as this was to watch, I can’t say I wasn’t thoroughly creeped-out by the size changing sequence.

    WOW! This was a little bit insane the stampede of children dressed as playing cards at the end was the obvious high point! It would be fun to have an Alice in Wonderland Booooooom themed project! *hint, hint*

    Saw it today.I thought it picked up the baton, and stayed true to the tone of Carroll’s children’s stories, albeit with that inimitable Burton twist. Depp and Burton back on form, I reckon

Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes.
