Actors Laughing 1- Kill Bill

When we watch the final cut of a film, it’s hard to remember that even the best actors slip up sometimes. After months of working together, the actors become close, and even in the most serious cinematic scenes, there is bound to be laughter in between sets. Redditor Join_You_In_The_Sun gathered this awesome collection from some of these funny moments captured on camera. On the set of Kill Bill, Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu take a break from their sword fight to cheese it up. Batman (Christian Bale) and Bane (Tom Hardy) put aside their “differences” for a good belly laugh for The Dark Knight Rises. Enjoy this collection and if you’re on Reddit, give Join_You_In_The_Sun an upvote! [Read more...]

Movies in Color: Film Stills Broken Down by Color

Monday 04.29.2013 , Posted by

Scarface

If you love data, pantone, and cinematography, then you will love this color analysis by Roxy Radulescu. The LA-based graphic designer originally from Illinois was inspired to look into cinematographic color choice when she was watching Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes. She selected a still and used a color generator in Photoshop to get the basic swatch ranges, then she composed the general color palette of the most prominent colors in the still. She has continued to use this process on some of the most popular films in cinema history, choosing a theme each week. This past week she took requests, but before that she had Scorsese, Hitchcock, Kubrick, and Tarantino week. With so many amazing films out there, Radulescu will not be running out of content anytime soon to keep this Tumblr going strong! [Read more...]
