Sydney-based graphic designer Peter Majarich plans to release a new, re-designed movie poster for every day of 2016. With over 160 redesigns under his belt already, the posters are a neat mix of each film’s original content and Majarich’s personal, minimalist style. Check out more images below!
This feels like April Fool’s Day in January! At CES on Tuesday, Kodak announced plans to release a new Super 8 film camera with features including, USB port, built-in mic, digital viewfinder, SD card-slot, and interchangeable lenses. Will this excite a whole new generation of young filmmakers about the film medium? Kodak hopes so!
According to the Wallstreet Journal, the cost of the camera releasing in the fall of 2016 is expected to be between $400 – $750, with a cheaper version following in 2017. Apparently the purchase of film cartridges ($50-$75) will also include the processing and creation of a digitization of the footage!
Kodak had a whole slew of A-List Hollywood directors weighing in on the importance of the film camera so it appears this is really happening. Have a look at more images of the prototype, created with industrial designer Yves Behar, below.
In the latest instalment of the brilliant series Every Frame a Painting (click here for previous instalments), Tony Zhou explains The Art of the Gag by the original master of visual comedy, Buster Keaton. With traces of his work in everything from the shots of Wes Anderson, the physicality of Jackie Chan, and the body language of Bill Murray, you’ve seen Buster Keaton even if you think you haven’t. So how did he do it and why is he so influential? Watch (and learn) below!
Fantastic re-imaginings of modern movie releases, spliced together with actors and elements from older films. With a B.A. in Film and Digital Media, New York-based graphic designer/illustrator Peter Stults spends much of his time critiquing movie posters and (lucky for us) creating his own.
Check out more images from the fifth volume of his ongoing project “What If: Movies ReImagined for Another Time and Place” below! Which of these films would you wanna see?
We’ve featured Micah Ganske on the site a couple times (see here and here). Check out this video portrait, directed by Alex Amoling as part of Distinct’s doc series, to see why. In addition to offering a great introduction to his work (which combines elements of 3D printing/sci-fi/virtual reality with sculpture/painting), Ganske shares wonderful insight into his creative process and how his drive toward experimentation staves off creative blocks and cultivates the kind of inspiration that evolves gradually over time. Watch below!
Yours Truly has been collaborating with a group of filmmakers and composers to produce a series of creative, music driven, narrative shorts for Ray Ban’s channel, Never Hide Films. Booooooom was tapped to oversee the film posters for the series, which was a fun job because it meant we got to work with a bunch of our friends.
“Stories From Those Jungle Books” was directed by Fan & Tom, and scored by Forest Swords, and serves as a reminder to celebrate every victory, every chance we get. Stay tuned for the full film!
If this is what happens when two (extremely talented) people get up in the wee hours of the morning and decide to create something, then everyone needs to be doing this.
No permits. 3 takes. Watch Nathan Mitchell dance it up in Phillip Lopez’s “Fred Astaire with a stomach full of Corn Chips and Valium,” below!
