Turbulent by Shirin Neshat
more movie poster art.
Thinking about poster design for Acts of God…. here some official and re-imaginings of some of my favourite films.
Shrin Neshat. epic.
I’ve just discovered Iranian-American video artist and film director, Shirin Neshat. I’d seen the dramatic feature film Women Without Men at MIFF and thought it was fantastic but not connected the dots when recently looking through a book collection of her visual art. The images are incredible, cinematic, powerful and this is one of my favourites. I’d love the opportunity to see them installed as video pieces as intended.
JUMP! by projection legends Urbanscreen. I’ve recently been researching 3D mapping with a human performance/dance element for Arts Centre Melbourne. This is one of the best references I found for the processes of shooting video to be projected onto a 3D architectural structure rather than flat canvas.
In their words. The project “Jump” is focusing on mapped video projection with a strict reference to architectural structure. The house front has been rebuilt in a studio setting with a proportion of 1:1,4. The setup becomes a stage for artists and performers. Later the captured video content is projected on the building.

After binging on two new Breaking Bad eps last night my Vince Gilligan love has been rediscovered. How did he get to be such a fantastic writer? - oh that’s right, 20-something episodes of X-Files and countless feature scripts. Sigh. Found this interview from Popcorn Taxi where he discusses working with his five other writers as a team. He says they don’t plan in advance where the overall plot will go but constantly ask questions about the characters - what do they want now? He also says he hopes to direct a feature film next… can’t wait.
