Tuesday 01.24.2012 , Posted by

Three years ago on a computer not so far away… a plan was hatched to create a completely open source version of Star Wars: A New Hope, using the members of the internet.

The resulting film – Star Wars Uncut: Directors Cut. [Read more...]

Monday 12.12.2011 , Posted by

Apparently, back in the 1930s, there were high expectations for our current fashion trends. Pathetone Weekly, the British cinemagazine, ran semi-news blurbs featuring obscure topics that aired from 1930 to 1941. This episode in particular was quite amusing, as it displayed concept clothing created by American fashion designers detailing what they believed clothing would look like in the year 2000. The ideas ranged from women wearing cantilever heels and electric belts to men wearing telephones on their chest and pockets to give “candies to cuties.” [Read more...]

Monday 11.14.2011 , Posted by

We’re big fans of the legendary Saul Bass, so when we saw that Ian Albinson at Art of the Title put together a video highlighting some of Bass’ most celebrated film titles, we were floored. The video marks the release of the much anticipated book Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design, which was designed by his daughter Jennifer Bass and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham who knew Saul personally. The large tome covers classic films such as Anatomy of a Murder and Vertigo, along with the titles designed just before his death in 1996.
