Keeping a visual diary

May 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

I have tried to keep track of my thoughts and write them down in a diary, but I never quite managed to keep it updated more than a couple of weeks. That’s why I got so ‘jealous’ and fascinated by Brooklyn-based designer and filmmaker Joe Hollier‘s  visual diary. My visual diary is a beautifully narrated stop-motion film, that captures a month in Joe’s life.

Movie color barcode

March 7, 2011 § 3 Comments

Each movie leaves you with a feeling, and this feeling is quite often translated to a specific color. For example, Matrix will always be green, whereas Slumdog Millionaire has more brownish nuances.

How would you feel if you could see the entire color pallet of a movie in just one image? MovieBarCode visualizes all the different colors used in a movie by compressing every single frame of an entire movie into just one signature and colorful barcode.

In the aftermath of the Oscar ceremony I couldn’t help it but post these LEGO renditions of Oscar nominated motion pictures posters. It’s not like I have hidden my love for LEGOs, anyway:

The art of making movie sounds

February 27, 2011 § 2 Comments

Have you ever thought that some of the sounds that you hear in a movie, such as the galloping of a horse, or the sounds of swords, are not actually real, but often created during production? Gary Hecker is a “Foley artist“, someone who specializes in creating everyday sounds for movies.

Right in time for the Oscars.
