Here’s something cool for all you fans of director Paul Thomas Anderson and comedian-turned-podcaster Marc Maron. Paul Thomas Anderson is the latest guest on the WTF Podcast! You can listen to the 2-hour interview here. Film fans can also look forward to an interview with director Richard Linklater! Excited for Maron to start interviewing more directors.

Also, I found these great posters for Paul Thomas Anderon’s latest film Inherent Vice. Does anyone out there know who created them? I can’t believe it’s this hard to track down a designer credit. If you know, let me know, and I’ll credit the artist(s).

*The posters were designed by BLT Communications, who are known for their terrific poster designs. I’ve yet to find any further details about who created them.

Video of the Day: The Sound of Interstellar

interstellar-01 interstellar-02 interstellar-03

I finally saw Interstellar last night, and it is definitely an uneven film but I enjoyed it. I think if certain sequences were left out I would have liked it even more, but Christopher Nolan seems unable to resist turning a cerebral film into more of a standard popcorn flick.

The score and sound design really stood out to me. When I came home I happened to get an email from Michael Coleman sharing a video of Sound Designer Richard King on creating the sound for Interstellar. Don’t watch this if you haven’t seen the film yet, but if you have this is cool to see.

Watch SoundWorks Collection’s “The Sound of Interstellar” below!

Artist Uses 3D Printer To Create A Film Without Any Film

Julien-Maire04

French artist Julien Maire used a 3D printer to create 85 figurines out of a liquid resin so that light could be projected through them. The little pieces pass through a projector and an image of a man digging a hole beams onto the wall. Maire made the work during a residency at the iMAL Centre for Digital Cultures and Technology in Brussels. Although the final film has yet to be shared online I think the sculpture itself is most interesting part. Have a look at some more detailed images of the work below.
